How To Wear Glitzy Baubles Without Looking Tacky

There is no better time than the holidays to load up on sparkly accessories. Statement earrings, layered necklaces, cocktail rings — I love 'em all. The problem is, how much is too much?

You want to make a statement but you don’t want to be tacky so it’s important to determine what you want that statement to be and make sure that your other accessories don't clash. I'm all about layering necklaces lately so in this case I want them to be the star of the show.
I kept it simple with a basic black top paired with some sleek denim and fun heels for a night out with the girls. By balancing the sparkly accessories with simple studs and a fun cocktail ring the necklaces look much more expensive rather than gaudy and cheap. A classy way to play up the sparkle!
