Must-have holiday accessories
We’ll show you where to buy them and how to wear them

It’s okay to go a little overboard when it comes to accessorizing your holiday outfits. Choose festive metallic items that are a bit more bold than your usual accessories. Just keep in mind that too much of a good thing, can overwhelm. “As a general rule, add your glitz in one or two places. Sparkling shoes and gorgeous, glittering earrings can make any little frock or clean-cut black suit shine,” says Chatelaine’s senior style editor Deborah Fulsang.
