Holiday Glam with Piercings
Your Guide to Getting Holiday Glam with Piercings
The holidays are basically here…which means one thing : holiday parties. From office parties, family gatherings to New Year’s eve celebrations, we are looking at a season of dining, wining and major festivities. And in turn, those celebrations mean shopping for the perfect outfit, makeup and of course, body jewelry. The pierced babe has one additional component to shop for and coordinate and we intend to make holiday glam a breezy and fun experience.
We’ve gathered inspo from around the web, on the streets and via body jewelry designers this season to help you get your piercing and body jewelry glam easy as 1-2-3. If you find this article helpful and/or love all things body jewelry, be sure to follow us on Instagram, where we feature our fave piercing inspo sources and a weekly body jewelry giveaway every Wednesday.
Ruby Woo & Bling Bling
One of the easiest ways to get holiday glam in a snap is to pair bling bling shiny gemmed jewelry and pair it with a bold, red lip. Nothing says festive like juicy red lips and sparkling gems then the holidays. Any other time of the year this look could be a little too over the top to rock but this season, all is fair game. If you have never tried wearing bold, sparkling jewelry with decadent gems and layers of sparkles or a bright red lip, this is the one time of the year you can experiment with it and be completely forgiven under “holiday style amnesty”. You’re safe to rock it out.
There is something about red and silver sparkles that go so well together. We don’t know why, it just does. Maybe we are all so deeply ingrained with those holiday colors from ornaments and lights that our brains register it the same was it registers peanut butter and jelly. Whatever the reason, here our super glam reco for this look:
** Tip : Be sure wipe the inside rim of your lips by sucking on your finger to catch the excess lipstick so it doesn’t transfer onto the piercing jewelry or your teeth!
More the Merrier
Tis the season to be merrier. Use what you got is what we say for the holidays when it comes to dressing your lobes. If you normally hesitate to wear more than 2-3 pieces of jewelry at once, this is the time when more is really merrier. For those of you who have multiple lobe piercings, put them to work this holiday season. There are SO many adorable pieces of ear jewelry that is now available to really customize your style to reflect your individual preferences. To show off the glamorous cluster of ear candy, pair with an updo so that they get the love that they deserve. If you want this look without the commitment, you can always fake it til’ you make it with jewelry that mimics multiple piercings or non piercing versions.

Dripping in Gold
Something about the holidays screams gold. Maybe it’s the warm gold ambiance of christmas lights or the colder weather wardrobe that screams luxe gold jewelry. Dripping in gold body jewelry for the holiday season is a must for sure. Whether you choose to go 24K or gold plated, something about gold makes us feel like a million bucks. There are so many variations of shades of gold that anyone can find gold jewelry that suites their skin tone. Afterall, even Apple’s Macbooks look more luxe in the gold and rose gold finish…
Dangling Ornaments For Your Body
Last but not least, adorning your body piercings with jewelry that dangles to extreme lengths is another holiday look that you can’t go wrong with. Something in the air around this time of year makes it totally acceptable to wear really cool, lengthy, tiered or dangling body jewelry. We love how body piercing jewelry has taken a turn for glam with the new jewelry styles that make piercings look like a work of art, such as belly shield, nipple shields, ear chains and cuff, and dangling belly rings. Nipple jewelry is all the rage with the recent disclosure of Kylie Jenner’s new birthday piercings and they look so good under a sheer shirt that just hints that your nipples might be pierced. Something about that is so sensual and super glam yet not at all over the top.
