Ocean Color Scene

The Sicilian Sun Lights up Swarovski’s Winter Sun Edit

The freshest looks for winter sun escapes make brilliant use of a classic beach palette. Think simple silhouettes that foreground bright splashes of coral, azure, turquoise and golden yellow, set off with crystallized sprays of jewelry. When you wear highly ornamental pieces by masters of the craft—like Deepa Gurnani, Rohit Bal and Frangos—then it pays to keep the canvas complementary, not competitive.

The perfect sky-blue of this dress by Victoria Beckham works beautifully with Deepa Gurnani’s gold-feathered, turquoise-flecked jewelry set. It’s a timeless holiday look that makes the most of the infinite nuances of the ocean’s color spectrum.

The shades of blue and green that glimmer from the crystals in Isharya’s flower bracelet and Pernia’s golden drop earrings do likewise, reflecting turquoise from a Lanvin dress, along with the cobalt and cerulean hues of the sea and sky. Swarovski Crystal Pearls enhance the marine theme.

A bejeweled belt by Tarun Tahiliani adds glamour and elegance to Other Stories’ relaxed beach tunic. Complete the look with oversize earrings featuring a shimmering cascade of crystals—this glorious pair is by Frangos Jewelry—and show them off with salty-wet hair knotted into the nape for convenience. It’s a beach-to-bar winner.

Asymmetric lines also give an understated look instant glamour. Go for something sleek and chic like this sundress by Solace. Not only does it show off bronzed shoulders, it really enhances those irregular rocks of crystal in JJ Valaya’s striking jewelry suite.

Holidays are the time to have fun with your wardrobe, which is one reason why we love Rohit Bal’s crystallized parrot earrings. The only thing this Campari-colored look needs now is a sea-view table on the terrace with uno spritz, per favore.
