Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m the kind of person who is always looking for an excuse to incorporate a little sparkle into my ensemble. So, I naturally get pretty excited when this time of year rolls around. Why? Because the holiday season is the perfect opportunity for you and your wardrobe to shine. Literally. Need some ideas? Read on and I’ll share my secrets to shimmering stylishly!
Now as we all know, a little glitter goes a long way. Therefore, it’s my opinion that the best way to get some glitz into your outfit is through accessories. Here are a few items that are guaranteed to glam up your holiday look!
A statement scarf like this sequin wrap from Macy’s can shake your outfit out of its winter blues. This shiny wrap works as a shawl over your little black dress for an office cocktail party, or as a casual scarf with jeans and a cute sweater for a more informal holiday gathering. An accessory that shines in different scenarios? Now that’s what I’m talking about!
You probably already know that a skinny belt can help define your waist and pull almost any outfit together. Add a little glitter to those qualities and you have a holiday accessory that’s unstoppable. This rosegold belt from J.Crew gives you a pop of shimmery color without overpowering the rest of your ensemble. If you’re not into gold, they also carry this gorgeous belt in silver!
An oversized ring is a fun way to add some bling to your holiday ensemble. The best part is that it doesn’t have to be an expensive piece of jewelry to be eye-catching. Check out this shiny trinket from Forever 21!
Put your best foot forward this season in some sparkly high heeled shoes. If you want to be adventurous, try a pair of red glitter pumps like these, from AdultCostumes.com. They’re festive and fabulous! But if you’re feeling a little less bold, black glitter heels can also give your holiday outfit that dose of glitz it needs.
This quilted metallic cross-body bag from The Gap is just what you need to pull your entire holiday look together. It’s practical, affordable, and of course, it has the whole shimmer factor going on. Wear this purse to any holiday get-together, from casual to formal!
One little warning before I go: I probably wouldn’t wear all of these sparkly accessories together. You don’t want to blind people. But adding one or two of these items to a holiday outfit is sure to make you stand out. Have fun and shine on!
