Denim Pairings: Denim & Diamonds

By Holier than Now

It’s time to deck the halls – and dump everything you own on the closet floor. It’s tough coming up with enough holiday outfits to get you through the party season without investing in five nights of new cocktail dresses, but the first step I usually take is to pour out my jewelry boxes and start piling the sparkle on top of pieces I already own.

This gorgeous editorial in Vogue Spain inspired me to dress down the diamonds (ok, the crystals … ok, ok – the plastic) with a boyish denim shirt and black pencil skirt.  I only wish I had a little denim dress to glitter up!  It’s a great way to feel dressed up but downtown, I-don’t-care cool.

While I’m over here laying out outfits, be inspired by these sparkling jewels (most under $200).  It’s not too late to pick these up for New Year’s Eve – and you can wear them over and over again, unlike that party dress.
