'Tis almost the season for parties, soirees and an oh-so-festive you! This season, your road to glamour is paved with jewels. We made our trend list and checked it twice — and then we scouted the stores to find the very best, can't-live-without-them "be jeweled" styles for you. They're all right here in the latest edition of The Trend Report!
Trend tip: Opt for a shrug with a matching tank and you'll be party-ready in five minutes flat!
Trend tip: Your "glam cam" has its accessories built right in, so don't overdo it — a great pair of earrings or a cocktail ring is all you need to shine.
Trend tip: The jeweled belt is an excellent way to update your Little Black Dress or last year’s holiday suit — wrap one on and voila! It’s a whole new you.
Trend tip: Wear one, or if you want to be ultra-trendy, wear two — one on your index finger and one on your middle finger. But that’s it, please … don't overdo this trend.
Trend tip: You can also "tie on" necklaces made of charmeuse or organza ribbons studded with jewels — another unexpected but oh-so-pretty way to accessorize.
