Take this small metallic purse from H&M with silver beading, a suitable fit for all your basic necessities in life. This purse acts as perfect solution for any night time adventures which will see you through to the New Year Countdown. Phone covers are having their time in the spotlight this season, as having the ‘it bag’ is no longer the covetable accessory of choice. Give your phone a seasonal update with this textured gold iPhone case, which is complimented by this black skinny waist belt finished with gold accents, ready to tie any outfit together.

Jewellery can often complete an outfit; take this intertwined gold chain from Zara as a prime example. This versatile piece can be worked from day-to-night; with a simple t-shirt or with a black dress it is ready for any party. If earrings just don’t make the cut anymore, move on with a modern piece of jewellery like the ear cuff. Take this piece from Nasty Gal and make a subtle statement, an ideal choice for those who want to try something different. An ear cuff works well with various hairstyles, ranging from a simple top-knot to a side braid – the perfect opportunity to show off your edgier side.

We’ve all heard that less is more. But sometimes we just have to make a few exceptions.
