When it comes to dressing well for special occasions, we know a thing or two. Whether you’re hoping to wow at an all-out black-tie event or you have an upcoming dinner date planned with your loved ones over the festive season, we have your new go-to style guide to make sure you’re dressed to impress for every event in your Christmas calendar.
Not only have we outlined our 3 key jewellery looks for event dressing this season, we’ve also included some of our favourite special occasion outfits available online now at Kaleidoscope. So sit down, relax and choose a look that suits you best, from all-out glamour to paired back perfection, we’ve got your new-season special occasion style covered.
We caught up with Kaleidoscope HQ to find out their top tips on occasion dressing for the autumn-winter seasons…
- Party and occasion wear is not just about dresses. Sparkling separates are a great alternative to keep you stylish and comfortable to dance the night away. Opt for sequin tops and wide-leg trousers for an on-trend look.
- If you’re attending a Christmas party straight from work, aim for a simple but elegant outfit that can be dressed up or down. The Jon Richard jewellery collection is the epitome of glamour, and their on-trend pieces can take your outfit from day to night in an instant.
- Our favourite summer style – the wrap dress – has had a winter party wear update. If you love them as much as we do, choose the flattering wrap front style to take you through to Christmas and New Year’s Eve in glitz and glamour.
- A classic party wear look for each season has to be the LBD. Pair your favourite little black dress with glittering gemstones that catch the light for a dazzling look.

The Cubic Zirconia collection offers high quality classic handcrafted pieces designed and made using look of real diamonds and gemstones, with inspiration taken from the glitterati of the red carpets.
Loved for its timeless appeal and elegance, a sparkling statement Cubic Zirconia all way necklace is diverse and sits elegantly against your collarbone, elevating a sophisticated bardot, square or round neckline beautifully with a subtly sexy appeal.
Whatever style of dress you choose, from classic lace to a sophisticated bardot, steal the show and give your outfit a dazzling finish with an elegantly encrusted cubic zirconia drop pendant collar necklace. Distinctive in style, these necklaces encircle your collar area and call for an elegant outfit to show them off. They are best worn with open neck tops like crew necks, V-necks, or off-the-shoulder numbers. Style your pendant drop collar necklace with a V-neck for a maximum-glam impact.
If a statement earring is your go-to, you can easily give your outfit a dazzling finish with Jon Richard cubic zirconia coloured gemstone earrings. Loved for their elegance and striking appeal, emerald and sapphire blue gemstones are the season’s best sellers and can be styled with an updo for an opulent finish.
Not sure what colour will work for you? Greens and blues are typically cool colours and therefore more flattering with lighter skin tones. Yellow shades work with warmer skin tones, especially if the stones are set in gold-tone (warm) metals.
Sequin details are truly season-less and are an easy option for festive parties and off-the-cuff cocktails. If you’re feeling daring, a top with a dazzling print or bold metallic accent is our go-to. Modern stone settings and silhouettes from the AW19 Jon Richard jewellery collection can be styled with sequins effortlessly, from dazzling dia lariats (styled best with a plunging neckline) to a sparkling statement piece that will adorn every party look. For the ultimate flair, style your hair with loose curls that fall elegantly onto your shoulders to enhance your neckline.
No Christmas party wardrobe is complete without a go-to statement earring. Sparkle into the new season with strikingly oversized and dramatic silhouette earrings. Warning, it’ll be impossible to slip by unnoticed.
Versatility, wear-ability and affordability is our mantra; we know that great style is not about age, it’s about mind-set – helping women to look good and feel great is at the heart of our design ethos. Whether you’re aiming for an on-trend impression or a timeless appearance, we can help you plan the perfect ensemble for any chilly occasion. If you prefer minimalist style or the event itself is understated, try pairing our modern CZ stone shattered baguette matching wrist wear and hoops with a paired down t-shirt, jeans and blazer combo. Our range of AW19 crystal stone details including contemporary baguettes and pave celestial statement pieces are a key season trend, perfect for every occasion and these matching items are our new go-to for the ultimate high/low or day to night style appeal.
While statement embellishments are best avoided for a simple ensemble, you can add interest by selecting minimalistic, polished jewellery designs. The most useful outfits are those that can go from desk to dinner, work to weekend, day to night — and the less work you have to put in to make that transition the better. When you need to transform your look from plain to polished, choose subtle pieces that don’t distract. Here are our top polished pieces that you can throw on in a moment to instantly make your day time occasion outfit glamorous…
