Festive Accessories for Zoom Holiday Parties
If you had asked me last year if I was attending any Zoom holiday parties, I would have said, puzzled: "...what's Zoom?"
This year has been filled with new pieces of vocabulary (shelter in place, social distancing, and Zoom, to name a few) that have come to define 2020. And as this year comes to a close, I am willing to bet that a good deal of us have received e-vites to at least one holiday Zoom party. Sure, you could opt to wear your daily black leggings and oversized sweatshirt (I mean, you're still just on your couch, after all), but where is the fun in that? Show your holiday spirit with these cute accessories—ranging from the silly and over-the-top to some understated pieces that are sure to make you feel festive!
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Shadow in Rose Gold
“Make your eyes pop this season with this festive shimmery champagne color on your lids. I love how easy these eyeshadow sticks are, too. Just one swipe and you’re done! Because it’s 2020 and nobody’s got time to spend hours on their makeup for a virtual party.” — Courtney Bowers
Glitter Snowflake Snap Clips
“These super cute hair clips have been a nice and subtle way to make my outfits a little more festive this time of year! I’ve been really liking wearing them on Zoom calls—a great way to show some holiday cheer while still being somewhat understated!” — Madeleine Letellier
Christmas Unicorn Headband
“Tipsy Elves is all about kitsch — or straight up ridiculous, holiday-themed clothing and accessories. Holidays over Zoom can be a buzzkill for some, so why not make it fun and funny? This year, I’m opting for a Christmas-themed unicorn headband vs. reindeer ears because #newnormal.” — Maria Pedone
Earrings by TG Lovera Creations
“These gorgeous handmade earrings literally go with everything. All of TG Lovera Creations’ earrings are like miniature works of art, and I always get compliments and questions about them whenever I wear them out. They’re well-made and durable, and they come packaged with care in amazing patterned bags. If you’re looking to support a small business this holiday season, let this be one of them!” — Brooke Weber
J.Crew Wide Knot Headband with Jewels
“‘Tis the season to be sparkly! This super cute jewel headband will stand out on even the largest holiday Zoom calls.” — Courtney Bowers
Drinking Buddies Classic Drink Markers
“These hilarious drink markers make a great gift for someone who likes to host and is game for a good laugh. The set of 12 “drinking buddies” even comes with a marker so everyone can name their new friends by writing on their speedos. Plus, they really do help you keep track of your drink.” — Christie Calucchia
