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
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.
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
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.
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.
How To Wear Sequins
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.
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.
