6 Show-stopping Holiday Accessories To Complete Your Look This Party Season


With every great party comes great responsibility (at least that’s what we think), and your festive wardrobe’s going to need a serious touch of pizzazz if it's going to keep up. So, we’re pretty much in full #festivelewk planning mode—we bet you are, too. 

A killer party dress or suit is the backbone or foundation to any Christmas party ensemble, but we truly believe that no getup’s complete without a few accessories here and there. Sporting some key standout pieces can also be a great thing if you’re keen to just recycle some of your LBDs or soiree numbers of Christmas past and decide to just inject new life to them (no judgement!). Smart, right? 

High on the agenda this holiday season are small yet detailed add-ons ranging from a very purse-friendly perfume under P300 to a high-roller timepiece if you’ve got some extra money to spare. Whatever your budget is, there’s a useful embellishment for you in our list up ahead. 

A spritz of sophistication

When the temps drop and the days grow shorter, it’s time to reach for scents that are as cozy and comfy as your fave Christmas sweater but are equally sophisticated enough for holiday gatherings. A spritz of your go-to perfume can top your Christmas number and is the easiest way to accessorize—not to mention that they always look (and smell) good on you no matter your body type, shape, or dress size. 

Make a statement with Aficionado’s F16 Clinique Happy for Men 85ml, now at 7% off for only P268 from P288. Inspired by Clinique’s crisp, citrus fragrance, the F16 boasts top notes of kaffir lime, calamansi, mandarin orange, and yuzu blended beautifully with earthy cedar, Mediterranean cypress, and guaiac wood. This men’s fragrance finds the perfect balance between lightness and muskiness to capture your senses without overpowering them. 

If you’re attending a couple of parties and would like to switch things up every single time, we suggest getting Ian Darcy’s 3-Bottle Bundle instead for only P699 instead of P1,750—that’s 60% off. Each bottle is an oil-rich fragrance imported from France that’s long-lasting and reminiscent of and inspired by signature scents from international brands we’ve all come to love. 

Merry and bright

When it comes to jewelry, it’s a case of the brighter the better. Make a party season comeback with Silverworks’ Heart Design Swarovski Jewelry Set that’s 50% off atm, going for only P549.50 from P1,099. Part of the brand’s Mio Mio Collection, this ruby-red set’s made of high-quality gold-plated stainless steel with red Swarovski studs. Wear the necklace to accentuate your plunging neckline and pair it with the set’s dainty earrings. 

A joyful surprise

Don’t want to wear your specs to your Christmas party? Opt for Ideal Vision’s Antepara Colored Contact Lens in Arctic Gray. It’s on a buy 1, take 1 offer right now, and will only ring you up for P495 instead of P990. These disposable, colored contacts are good for a month and perfect for nearsighted peepers (yup, they’re graded). They’ll brighten up your natural eye color and make accessorizing easier and even more fun. 

Countdown to Christmas

Seiko’s signature motifs make their timepieces a must-own. Apart from being functional, they can be a key accessory when glamming up for the holidays. 

The Seiko 5 Automatic 21 Jewels SYMG35K1 Women's Watch will look great with whatever number you might choose for your holiday shindigs, as it features a classic stainless-steel case and bracelet and a white dial. It has a hardlex crystal case, luminous hands and markers, and day-date window. We love that it’s water-resistant, too, for up to 50 meters. Shop this timeless hardware at 10% off, now only PP5,940 (before P6,600). 

A best-value option for dressing up is the Seiko 5 Sports SRPE69K1 Men's Automatic Watch. This all-black number’s an automatic piece with a black PVD plated stainless steel case and black nylon strap. It’s the ideal accessory for active use with water resistance up to 100 meters, but it can also double as a piece to refine your holiday look.
