This is a guest post by Cher Coulter, celebrity stylist, best friend to Kate Bosworth, and one half of JewelMint, the new jewellery label that recommends bespoke designs based on your personal style. But she can introduce herself better than we can.
Cher Coulter is a top Los Angeles based stylist, whose client list includes Kate Bosworth, Sienna Miller, Katie Holmes, and Scarlett Johansson. Known for combining easy avant-garde with absolute glamour in her women’s styling, Cher possesses an equal talent for men’s fashion. Cher and her dear friend Kate Bosworth recently launched their very own jewellery line, JewelMint, which provides members with high-end jewelry for $29.99/month.
We asked Cher to pick her top party accessories to share with you, our lovely readers, to have you sparkling like a celeb this Christmas. See below for her favourites…
1. Topshop Velvet Bow Clips, $15.
“These are so Sixties, so swinging and so festive! To style, either beehive the back of your hair and stack them in the nest on top, or wear two on one side. So cute!”
2. Paillette Flap Bag by Chanel, $6000
“This is the perfect party bag because you can sling it across your body and throw your hands in the air on the dance floor – but nothing will get lost!”
3. Sparkle Calf Sock by American Apparel, $9
“For a fun look, team up these socks with those plain old pumps you just love. This is a cheap way to jazz up your outfit!”
4. Mystic Fall Earrings by JewelMint
“These show-stopping chandelier earrings are the perfect party accessory. Try the Ganesh earrings for a more feminine look, or the Piet earrings to up your cool factor! Pull your hair back to give these pieces lots of perfect light to sparkle.”
5. Celestial Wreath Necklace by JewelMint
“Want to feel like a movie star from eras past? This glamorous choker is one of Kate’s favorites. Style it with something strapless if you dare! Keep the color light and ethereal to show off the choker with maximum effect.”
6. Leather Belt from Zara, $29.90
“This animal print belt will cinch in a dress and show off your fashionable curves, a la Louis Vuitton (skinny is so last year!).”
7. Ron Ron by Christian Louboutin, $595
“If you want to flash the cash, Louboutin has a blue glitter pump that will brighten your holiday party season. Dorothy follows the yellow brick road and ends up on the dance floor!”
8. Bella Bracelet by JewelMint
“If you want to make your own music on the dance floor, shake your wrists with this groovy boho piece. Pair with sparkly grey attire to put you in the party mood!”
9. If You’ve Got It, Haunt It Nail Colour by OPI, $9
“A black nail polish with a hint of sparkle will give your night that extra zing.”
10. Rouge Allure in Insolente by Chanel, $30
“Play Mad Men’s Joan for a night with a bright-coloured lipstick. That pout has to be ready for mistletoe action!”
11. ‘Amazing’ by Hi Fashion
“Listen to this song to boost your confidence as you get all dolled up!”
12. Silver Flower Chain Bracelet from JewelMint
“If you’re a little cool for school and love that effortless bohemian approach to fashion, then stack a bunch of these bracelets on your wrist and pair with a gray Isabel Marant puff sleeve short dress (so on trend!). For extra flair, add some black dotted tights.”
13. Assets Womens Sensational Shaper by Sara Blakely at Target, $20
“Finally, something to keep all that overindulgence in place! This pair pulls in your waistline and sits high on your thigh for your miniskirts, but fits just under your bra to keep you skinny through the midriff!”
