Successorize Your Look with Stylish Necklaces

I love wearing statement necklaces and layering chic jewelry to infuse style into my daily outfits– which are what I like to call “successories.” A successory (see my quote on page 107 of this month’s People Style Watch) is a special accessory that is successful at taking your look from good to glam in record time! A successory can be a great leopard bag or a fab pair of earrings. The necklaces below certainly fit the bill and here are my favorite for the season:

Dannijo Medine Necklace, BUY NOW, $495
The fabulous sister team behind Dannijo create the most gorgeous and unique statement necklaces. Their Keira Bib style is an antiqued Copper chain with marble resin beads, and the taupe and turquoise color palette make for perfect spring shades. I love the versatility of this piece from dressing up a simple white tee to a sexy cocktail dress. Dannijo is a favorite of Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, Alexa Chung, Michelle Trachtenberg and style blogger “Man Repeller” Leandra Medine.

Jennifer Miller Swarovski Crystal Horn Necklace, BUY NOW, $295
I am obsessed with my Jennifer Miller Crystal Horn Necklace and like to wear it with my Ramy Brook dresses, or with jeans and a silky top. The yellow gold-plated necklace is on a 36” link chain and falls in just the right spot. It’s chic style finishes off any outfit! Jennifer Miller has cultivated a celeb following including Beverly Hills Housewives Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump, New York Housewife Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and Angelina Jolie.

T.Cyia “Atomic” Gold Multi Chain Scarf Necklace, BUY NOW, $205
The T.Cyia handmade Multi Chain Necklace is a stylish and versatile piece that can be worn as a scarf, tied in a knot or double wrapped. Mixed metals make it on-trend and easy to wear with everything including gold and silver jewelry. The talented LA-based design team Tim McElwee and Cyia Batten create these beautiful pieces that are incredibly artistic. They are also favorites of Jennifer Lopez, Kate Walsh and Melissa George.

10 Perfect Holiday Dresses

 

One of the reasons I love the holidays as much as I do is for all of the great party dresses designers roll out! Whether you have cocktail parties, workplace events, or family gatherings coming up, finding the perfect dress can be a challenge. In honor of the season, I selected some great options so you can look and feel your best wherever the holidays take you!

1. Lanvin Sequin Print Cowl Neck dress, BUY NOW, $1890
I love just about anything Lanvin and this dress is perfect for any holiday event you may attend. This sequin-print dress has a modest hemline, cap sleeve, and playful cowl neck—you can wear it to corporate parties, family get-togethers, and everywhere in between. You can rock this same look for less with another one of our favorites, RACHEL Rachel Roy: Ice Capade dress, BUY NOW, $129.

2. Ramy Brook Caftan, BUY NOW, $495
My favorite new designer Ramy Brook does it again! I purchased this fun dress in red to wear at some of my upcoming holiday events. Its asymmetrical (short) hem is flirty and it comes with its own belt that cinches below the waist for a super flattering fit. The dress is really festive in red, but it is also available in several colors!

3. Jay Godfrey Color Block dress, BUY NOW, $365
This one shoulder color block dress is a great party dress for everyone because of its flattering silhouette. Not only does cobalt blue work on all skin tones but the cut works on all body types. Sure you could pair it with black tights and pumps, but for a more holiday feel, go for metallic accents and sparkly accessories.

4. Ali Ro Sequined Lace minidress, BUY NOW, $365
Ali Ro’s mini dress is your quintessential holiday dress! With subtle striping, sequins and lace, could a New Year’s outfit really need more? Okay fine, maybe just a great pair of chandelier earrings, a statement clutch, and tights (if you are ringing in the New Year in the cold).

5. J.Crew Metallic Jacquard dress, BUY NOW, $350
Jacquard is a holiday favorite and must have. This J.Crew style is great for anyone who prefers to show off their natural waist line, as the dress has one sewn in for you. And let’s not forget that this is one of those dresses you can get away with wearing multiple times as it can be styled many different ways (think ankle booties, chunky bangles, and a studded clutch or bordeaux pumps, pendant necklace, and a velvet shoulder bag).

6. Alice & Olivia Wrapped Goddess dress, BUY NOW, $264
The Alice & Olivia Goddess dress will keep you feeling like a Goddess no matter how many hors d’oeuvres you may find yourself eating! The silk chiffon draped mini hides belly bloat and the one shoulder construction is a great way to show off your figure. If you are heading tropical for the holidays, try this style in white or dusty rose. This fab dress is a celebrity favorite and available in a variety of hot colors.

7. Urban Outfitters Cooperative Plumage dress, BUY NOW, $199
This fun dress screams party and we love it for that alone. With a chiffon top and feathered skirt, it’s hard not to want to pair this dress with your favorite spiked-heel dancing shoes.

8. Topshop Reverse Panel Bodycon dress, BUY NOW, $130
The lace panels on this dress make it truly something special, not only do they make for an alluring neckline but the cut outs on the side give any waist great definition. Because this dress has a lot of character, keep your accessories to a minimum–go with a classic timepiece, a simple pair of stud earrings, and a large vintage cocktail ring. Also, try a fun up-do to show off the lace detail!

9. The Limited Color Block dress, BUY NOW, $118
The Limited color block dress is another one of those wardrobe staples. It’s simple enough to act as a great canvas for virtually any styling you may want to add to it. Should you want a belt, go ahead and add it, a chunky necklace, certainly, patterned tights, why not? Have fun with this dress and don’t be afraid to make it your own!

10. BB Dakota Clarissa dress, BUY NOW, $110
Normally floral dresses make you think of spring, but the color palette makes this dress perfect for the holidays. The gorgeous floral pattern looks hand painted and the brush strokes give it a modern update. Love the retro style!

Up and Coming Designers

By Katrina Caspelich

Ramy Brook

A former advertising executive and fan of Lanvin, Kaufman Franco, and Stella McCartney, Ramy Brook has taken her love of fashion and turned up-and-coming designer with her own clothing line. Brook creates the clothes she wants to wear to the glam parties, dinners, and luncheons she frequents in New York. Think low-cut silk tops and dresses retailing for $195 to $495.

Aimed at women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s who want to feel sexy, these designer clothes are feminine and flattering, and individual pieces come in an array of shades from soft neutrals to bright colors. Her favorite? A go-to top that works for all occasions. No more “I have nothing to wear.”

When not at work or with her family, Brook runs, plays tennis, takes spin classes, and pursues her newest hobby, Mahjongg.

Fun Fact about Ramy: For a night on the town, she opts for dinner with her husband at Italian eatery Nicola’s Restaurant on New York’s Upper East Side.

Camille Vizzavova of Eddera

A former model, Camille Vizzavova has more than her looks going for her. She has her own jewelry line, Eddera, and a celebrity following. Think Victoria Beckham and Maria Sharapova, who both own Vizzavova’s favorite piece—the Greek Leaf Headband. She hopes everyone will splurge on Eddera jewelry, since it goes day to night.

Vizzavova fell in love with fashion as a teenager. Requests for her handmade jewelry sent her to train seriously under Adalbert Smoliar, retired head jeweler for Van Cleef & Arpels in Paris. Before moving stateside in 2001, Vizzavova designed for Boucheron and Chopard.

Now based in Los Angeles, she’s taken up surfing and plans to add bags to Eddera’s line of jewelry and hair accessories.

____________________________
Fun Fact about Camille: She’s not only a professional gemologist, she also makes and designs the jewelry herself.
