‘You can have so much fun choosing your accessories for a Christmas party, itโ€™s the one time of year where more is more! Accessories have the power to completely elevate a look and also add freshness, you can easily swap a handbag and see your party outfit with a whole new personality. My go-tos at Christmas are all things velvet and sparkly.’ Mariya Dykalo, creative director of Aspinal of London.
