Trim your tree in style.

What would a Christmas tree be without its ornaments? Naked, of course. But in all seriousness, the ornaments can really make the tree, giving it all sorts of personality and style. You can go the traditional route with classic ball ornaments in the color scheme of your choice and some lights. Or, maybe you’re the type of person or family who has an inventory of ornaments in which each one has a special story or memory. You might also be modern or artsy with your picks. And there are some people who are of the mindset where anything goes—the ornaments on your tree are a mishmash of a whole bunch of things and there’s no set color palette or theme or even sentimental significance.

So yeah, ornament preferences can run the gamut. The fun part is that there really aren’t any hard-and-fast rules when it comes to trimming your tree—well, aside from the fact that you don’t want to weigh it down with too many decorations, and you’ll want to strike the right balance in terms of placement so everything looks even and the tree isn’t lopsided. To help you decorate your tree this year, we’re sharing some of the best-looking ornaments we’ve come across recently.
