Ask & Embla’s Christmas Lookbook: An Alternative Style with a Festive Cheer

The long-awaited holidays are upon us. Seeing as how we spent last year’s holidays in lockdown, it’s time to plunge into the jolly spirit tenfold and not let Grinch (read: pandemic) steal Christmas a second time around.

No matter how many times you’ve done it, finding the right holiday ensemble never gets any easier (especially if your style doesn’t technically fit the bill of a holiday get-up). Here’s a selection of styles to help you find the perfect jewelry fitting for the occasion in alternative festive cheer!
