There you are looking through the racks at your favorite clothing store for something a bit unusual, something that speaks to you a little more than all of the other stuff. Then, you see it, a few hangers down. Of course, it speaks to you- it sparkles. Every woman is drawn to glittery things! You walk over and pull it off the rack. You love it; the only problem is: how are you going to wear it without looking like you’re going to a bar mitzvah? If you have some sparkly clothes in your wardrobe that are waiting for the right occasion, your wait may be over. Here are some ways you can take sparkle to the streets.
Keep it Classy
A higher neckline is a quick way to earn a few sophistication points when you’re bringing the bling. Avoid revealing necklines on all -over sparkle dresses, and finish your look with black accessories to tone it down a bit.
A Glittery Jacket
The glitter says “fun” the jacket says “style.” Drape a glittery metallic jacket over your shoulders to add a little sparkle without overdoing it.
A twinkle here, a glimmer there. Glittery accessories and accents are always eye-catching and subtle. Try a shiny belt or waistband, or a jeweled neckline to add some fun to a casual look.
Here’s a no- sequin way to shine. Patent leather boots and jackets always make a statement. A patent moto jacket or knee high boots are great ways to complete your look, day or night.
Shiny Shoes and Clutch
A shiny bag and clutch are just what you need to take your LBD from day time to night time. Grab a mirrored clutch or rock some killer stilettos to jazz up your all black ensemble.
Pewters and coppers tend to look a little more classic than silvers and golds. Show a little skin with a dark gold sequin top paired with a black leather mini for a toned down upgrade.
Shiny metallic necklaces, big glittering earrings, and cocktail rings all contribute to the sparkle factor of an outfit without going overboard. Keep your jewelry box well stocked to keep shine within reach.
Prints don’t call for over accessorizing, which makes them ideal for wearing embellishment free, for a more streamlined, less cluttered sparkle.
Nudes with sparkles
The nude look is in. Try a nude fabric with sequins and a higher neck to keep the party stylish. Pair with some glitter heels and you’re set.
