Plus three champagne cocktails to match. It's a bubbles/baubles lovefest!
When it comes to getting ready for an epic holiday soiree, Blair Eadie—style blogger at Atlantic Pacific—makes it all about the trimmings: gorgeous jewelry and champagne cocktail to match. Here, how to elevate your arm party to gilded holiday perfection, plus cocktail pairings to clutch and sip as you show off that bling.
Eadie's rule of thumb for piling on the most blingy of metallics? Have some fun with it. "Don't be afraid to mix in other metals and add some color," she says. "You can totally dress up a basic LBD with the right pieces." Statement jewelry deserves a cocktail to match; the French 75, one of the most iconic bubbly concoctions, makes a serious statement.

Forget diamonds–rose gold is a girl's new best friend. (Well that, and a Lush rosé champagne cocktail!) It's classy and looks luxe; plus, it works on every skin tone. "It's such a fresh alternative for holiday party outfit accessories," Eadie says.

You know how that whole menswear-chic thing looks so effortlessly cool? A dark silver tone capitalizes on that masculine energy, making it the ideal neutral to take you from the office to the opera. The best way to wear it, Eadie says, is to play with delicate and statement pieces alike. "Pairing different scales creates depth and interest," she says. And just like pewter will always be stylish, the aptly-named Champagne Cocktail will forever be the bubble to beat.
