How To Wear Embellishments and Sequins

Bring on the bling! The holiday season calls for sparkly embellishments, festive sequins & shiny details—but what happens after the lights and tinsel come down? Surprise: you can wear sparkle year-round to get extra mileage out of your festive attire. Check out 3 looks you can wear now (dressed up for the holidays) and later (a bit more toned down).

How To Wear An Embellished Neckline

Dressed Up

Skip the statement necklace, and instead try a blouse with an embellished neckline. It’s versatile and makes accessorizing effortless (or, simply, unnecessary). Try a tank with a beaded neckline under a jewel-toned boyfriend blazer & black skinnies for a festive feel.

Dressed Down

Change up the holiday palette & opt for lighter neutrals for year-round wear—like an olive purse & distressed denim. Kick off your heels for lace-up flats for a date-night look fit for all seasons. On cooler days, drape a moto jacket over your shoulders for a contemporary-cool vibe.


How to Wear Metallic Details

Dressed Up

Time for your LBD to shine! Metallic detailing makes a little black dress even more fitting for a festive gathering. Bring out the richness of gold piping by pairing the dress with matching metallic pumps. Accessorize with dainty earrings & a chunky arm party to jingle bell rock through the season.

Dressed Down

Don’t overthink girls’ night out. Simply add a denim jacket to your metallic-detailed LBD for a casual take on holiday partywear. Throw on tights & pointed flats for cool-weather outings. Or, as spring approaches, pair this combo with espadrille wedges for a brand-new spin on this once-holiday piece.

Keep calm & cuff on! Sequin details—like elbow patches or cuffs—add sparkle without being too eye-catching.

How To Wear Sequins

Dressed Up

Keep calm & cuff on! Sequin details—like elbow patches or cuffs—add sparkle without being too eye-catching. Make the outfit weather-appropriate with heavyweight winter textures like coated denim, then add the glam with a faux-fur scarf. For extra coziness, don’t forget the fleece-lined tights & suede ankle booties.

Dressed Down

Tone down the sparkle by going tonal! Wear skinny or straight-leg denim in a similar hue to your embellished top to keep your silhouette looking long & lean. Not into the monochromatic trend? Add a pop-color flat in that season’s hottest hue, like mint for spring or burgundy for fall.
