All that glitters: Opulent watches and jewellery for a glamourous evening out
A touch of noir
The general assumption about festive baubles is that it usually comes in (and is only limited to) colourful stones, but who's to say you can't pull off black and white themed adornments that still exude a fanciful sentiment? Below, we make a case for wearing only monochromatic watches and jewellery teemed with outfits of the same colour wheel — amped with a dash of deep red over the lips for a glamourous look altogether. This one is definitely for the diehard, black-and-white-only fashion folks.
