Although Christmas is all about sparkles and sequins and shimmering galore, it doesn’t always have to be about sleighing in a head-to-toe sequin getup (think sparkly dress, bag and shoes to boot).

Some of us would rather subtly inject that festive fashion feel into our accessories as a cute and clever nod to Christmas instead – and for that, we salute you!

The best way to give that nod, you ask? Earrings of course.

Nothing quite makes us feel as elegant, grown-up and glamorous as a totally blingin’ pair of earrings – even if they are from Penneys. They can drastically change any outfit and immediately make you look 4 times more polished. Fact.

An in-your-face hot pink sequined body-con dress might not be for the faint of heart but if you translate that dress into a pair of earrings then anyone can pull that off.

They aren’t just a subtle outfit addition either though. For those of us who want to grab the attention of that special someone at the office Christmas party, why not go for the come hither/sparkle dress and the blingin’ earrings – it’s called peacocking doncha’know?

We’re after these 5 pairs to up our Christmas sparkle game this year.
