Yeah sure, finding the perfect frock for a party is half the battle, but the real fun begins when you start to think about shoes and accessories.


It’s the finishing touches that have the power to really change an outfit, so they shouldn’t be left until the last minute.


Take a simple, yet elegant black dress, and you can completely give it your own sense of style by adding shoes and accessories that reflect you.


Cocktail events are a great excuse to take your jewellery to the next level. You could go all out with a statement earring, or show off a stunning neckline with a fabulous necklace.


Sure, you have to be able to walk in your shoes, but don’t be scared to go for something glam. Colour or even bling will lift your look monumentally!


Here are a few accessories that can help you make a statement at your next cocktail party!
