The key to party season dressing is a statement accessory

We're not usually huge advocates of the colour pink, but that all changes come party season, and in a big way. If anything's going to make you smile, it's a flash of the high-voltage shade brightening up a summer ensemble - think a party-perfect Bulgari Serpenti Forever shoulder bag in vibrant fuchsia, magenta-rimmed sunnies and a swipe of saturated colour on the lips.

The ideal partner for all that head-turning colour is, of course, sparkle - think a glint of silver hardware, perhaps, or a gleaming gold cuff. Not tickled pink? No problem - we've found the ultimate party heels in zingy citrus that do the job just as well. Here are our top picks to take you through Christmas, NYE and beyond.
