Tips For How to Dress for the Occasion

It’s party and event season, so you might be reeling from all the RSVPs and invites. The first thing that always crosses our minds: what will I wear? Whether your gathering with friends, family or coworkers, deciding what’s appropriate for the occasion is a daunting task. To help ease the holiday stress, we put together a list of four common holiday events with accessory tips.

Holiday jewelry trends

 

1. Office Holiday Party

If you are attending an office holiday party, sometimes it can be difficult to find a middle ground between business professional and formalwear. We suggest small and simple pieces for understated accessories. Adding a dress watch and sample Van Cleef & Arpels clover earrings can take your office attire closer to formal than business. If you are unsure of the dress code for your work event, adding a diamond pendant and interesting ring can elevate your look without overstepping.

2. Family Gathering

At first, a party with your family doesn’t seem worth of wardrobe questioning. However, then you realize that you’ll want to look your best for all of your relatives or even your in-laws. You’ll want to wear something beautiful and in the holiday spirit without going overboard. We suggest a holiday-colored statement Amulette de Cartier necklace with simple accessories, like a dress watch and perhaps a holiday charm bracelet.

3. A Party with Friends

If you’ve never challenged your sartorial prowess at an ugly Christmas sweater party, then now is your chance. If you are dressing for an evening in with your friends, then you have the opportunity to have fun with your accessories while also remaining casual. We suggest a stack of Cartier Love bracelets knockoffs to compliment the noisy sweater and a quirky, holiday Chanel brooch to take it over the top. Finally, calm down the look with a small pair of Van Cleef & Arpels stud earrings.

4. A Formal New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is one of the few times a year wear dressing extravagantly is not only acceptable, but encouraged. If you are attending a formal party, then you will definitely need to have at least one over-the-top statement piece. A diamond-encrusted necklace, bracelet or ring would be perfect. Even better — a Panthere piece from Cartier replica jewelry or a Serpenti piece from Bulgari.

What to Wear: Holiday Jewelry

The holiday season is here and with the celebrations come events, parties and get-togethers with friends and family. It’s also the perfect time to have fun with your accessories. Festive or fearless, there are plenty of ways to complement your favorite holiday outfit.

1. Seasonal Spirit

It’s the only time of year that you can get away with snowflakes and Christmas trees — so don’t hold back! There are a lot of options when it comes to jewelry that is literally holiday inspired. Love the winter? Get an Hermes Clic H bracelet with festive snowflakes. Love the winter and diamonds? Get a Chopard Happy Sport watch with a snowflake dial.

If you are looking for a Christmastime trinket, then there’s the Van Cleef & Arpels Clover necklace that would look perfect under the tree. Finally, if your interpretation of holiday-inspired jewelry is less literal, we think the diamonds on these Ippolita earrings look like snow-covered branches.

2.  Understated Elegance

If you love all things luxury with a sophisticated and understated elegance, then perhaps you don’t need anything other than a classic, refined staple piece. There are three things every woman needs in her jewelry collection: a bracelet, something pearl and diamond studs.

The Cartier Love bracelet is stunning without imposing. Bonus: it tells the time while looking like a fine jewelry piece. If you are looking for a more traditional timepiece, then look no farther than the Cartier Ballon Bleu. This is a watch for those who love excellence, but not flashiness. For jewelry, opt for a pair of classic Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra earrings — pearls or diamond studs.

Why Buy Luxury Online?

Today the luxury market is performing well compared to other markets and remarkably better than it was just a few years ago, but why so suddenly? Online marketplaces and ease of access have made purchasing luxury simply effortless, somehow making the experience even more luxurious.

The term luxury is sometimes associated with unnecessary or frivolous. Although there may be a connotation to the term for some, there are many benefits of buying luxury goods, especially online. We believe that luxury isn’t exorbitant — it’s necessary, and here’s why.

Quality

The markup isn’t superficial on many luxury goods. Though you may pay more money for a well-known luxury designer, you aren’t just paying for the label, you are also paying for the heritage.

Many luxury brands were founded with the purpose of delivering high-quality goods and over the decades, these values still remain. Cartier love jewelry did not become the “King of jewelers and jewelry to kings” by producing sup-par jewelry and accessories.

The high quality and fine craftsmanship also make luxury products and lasting investment. The items are meant to last for a long time, not deteriorate after a year. Many times, these products can become family heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.

Slow Fashion

Cartier love braceletNot only are luxury products meant to last, but they are beautifully designed and meant to remain in fashion. When you invest in a luxury product, you are also buying a product that will remain in fashion for decades to come. The Cartier Love bracelet remains a highly-coveted and stylish accessory unchanged in the last 45 years. If only you had bought one in 1970 for $250!

Fast fashion is trendy and often poorly made. These designs are meant to last a season until new styles begin trending. When you spend your money on poorly-made items every fashion season, you end up spending more than you would if you had invested in a well-made luxury item.

Investment

Though some view luxury fashion as an investment in style, it’s also a real monetary investment. You can invest now and perhaps get a return after some time. Think of that $250 Cartier Love bracelet replica in 1970 — the same bracelet is worth over $6,000 today. Vintage pieces in good condition may also be worth more.

It’s also a wearable, beautiful and useful investment. The last stylishness and high quality craftsmanship make luxury goods a great investment for your wardrobe. Unchanging fashion staples will remain in use and in style for decades, meaning there’s no need to make the same purchase multiple times.

Saves Time and Effort

Time is a true luxury and online shopping has made shopping a quick and simple task. You can order your favorites from the office, during your commute or even at home in your pajamas. There’s no need to take time out of your schedule to visit the store and deal with the long sales pitches and rigamarole often associated with visiting a luxury shop. If you know what you want, then a few clicks online can save you a lot of time.

You can also save money by purchasing replica Cartier jewelry online. You have the option to research your item and vendor thoroughly before purchasing. This way you can be sure you get the best price and condition possible. You don’t have to depend on the sales associate to give the honest details about your purchase — they are all a quick online search away.

To Buy Or Not To Buy Replica Hermes Bracelet

Replica Hermes Collier De Chien Bracelets

With the volatile markets and growth of designer replica Hermes jewelry purchases over the last 5 years, there has been an increase in the availability or pre-owned Hermes jewelry on the market. Also known as estate, pre-owned, used and refurbished, there are hundreds of stores out there as well as online that buy, promote and sell the items. However, whether to buy it or not is a totally different question.

The biggest advantage of buying a replica Hermes jewelry over brand new pieces is the price. Pre-owned Hermes jewelry has to be cheaper than its brand new counterparts often between 30-50%. And considering that worn jewelry shows very little signs, a great piece can be a great steal.

But this doesn’t mean that used jewelry is completely brand new either. Prongs may have widened and clasps may have loosened. So if you do find a piece that you love, make sure that the fix all the tiny glitches before you pay up.

A lot of pre-owned Hermes jewelry will come unverified. Silver may be passed off as gold and zircon as diamonds. So be very, very careful when making these purchases and ask for appraisals or try to stick to reputed and trusted sources such as LuxuryClover.cn

Top 5 Fashion Week Jewelry Trends

Fashion Daily jewelry

Unfortunately, Fashion Week has drawn to a close. However, that means we can finally round up the best of the jewelry trends from the most fashionable week of the season. Here is a list of top 5 of our favorite trends straight off the runway at New York Fashion Week.

1. Bibs and Chokers

J. Crew kept the jewelry fresh and colorful for spring. We loved the bright, floral accent perfect for the bloom of the springtime season. In a start contrast to J. Crew was Pamella Roland. She kept it simple and chic with a thick-banded choker in black. This monochrome effect is great for those who like to avoid the bright colors, but still want to make a statement.

2. Hoop Earrings

Hoop earrings are back! These could be considered statement earrings, but they deserve a category of their own. Rag and Bone went for the classic hoop look in gold. Meanwhile. Derek Lam chose the oversized and wooden-beaded hoops to match their necklace.

3. Asymmetrical Necklaces

Fashion Van Cleef & Arpels Necklace

These necklaces make a minimalist statement. Jill Stuart and Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry both opted to trade in size and symmetry for a look that’s memorable and understated. We love the asymmetrical look of these two necklaces. The designs are a much-needed update on the classic Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra necklace.

4. Earthy Stones

Recently, natural, earthy and rough stones have started to trend. Cartier jewelry and Hermes jewelry both combined recent trends with earthy stones for a beautiful effect. Hermes jewelry used a flat, rock-like stone for a spin on the breastplate necklace. Cartier jewelry updated the earrings with an earthy-colored, rounded stone.

5. Van Cleef & Arpels Clover Earrings

The biggest trend of the week was, without question, the Van Cleef & Arpels Clover earrings. It seemed as if every designer had to have their own version of oversized or eye-catching earrings. We loved the modern metal chains worn on the catwalk for Alexander Wang and the simple single earring of the Tibi show.
