Rue How-To: Make That LBD Sparkle

’Tis the season of parties, and with plenty of invitations on their way, you can bet that trusty LBD is going to get a lot of play. The best way to spruce up the staple up for the holidays? Simple – a good dose of sparkle. From cocktail rings to a little (okay, a lot of) arm candy, here’s how to do it:

Ring a ding ding
A big ring is a cocktail party must-have (hence the term “cocktail ring”).
Tip: When telling a story, use plenty of hand gestures – this is a piece you want everyone to see.

A Little Jingle
A little (okay, a lot) of arm candy is always a good thing when it comes to a party. So, pile them high and have fun with it – these are your stylish bells announcing your arrival.
Tip: Don’t just stick to one metal, go for gold, silver, and a slew of gemstones.

Just a Drop
While I love a good stud (pun intended), drop earrings are a must-have for festive parties.
Tip: When it comes to statement necklaces and earrings, pick one – otherwise they’ll take too much attention away from your dress.
