With Christmas just around the corner and party season practically upon us, it's time to get geared up for the most glamorous time of the year.
While this season is all about luxe velvet and unicorn sequins, it's also prime time to pull that little black dress out of the wardrobe and get your money's worth.
And as extravagant as this season's collection of party dresses may be, the accessories are to die for.
A great accessory has the power to transform any outfit, and we're proving this by spicing up our fave LBD with some of this season's most fabulous adornments.
For this style challenge, SHEmazing! opted to hit River Island – it's affordable and there are loads of festive-appropriate steals there at the moment.
1) Sequin sista
A sequin bolero is a power piece that just screams 'PARTY!' This number will add instant festive appeal to your basic LBD, and will perfectly complement your fabulous glittery garments.

Accessorise your LBD with a pom-pom choker and a glitter-encrusted box-bag, and voilá; a fresh, cute and quirky take on a classic look.
