‘Tis the Season to Sparkle

‘Tis the Season to Sparkle

The holidays bring out the brightest in all of us because of the joy and love felt all around. It makes us glow with the light of faith and hope. To reflect that same radiance, a lot of sparkle and shine are displayed wherever they can be placed - decorations, food, and of course, our clothes! 


Though shiny embellishments and fabric are normally reserved for evening events or after-dark parties, the holiday season is the one time in the year when it’s absolutely expected to sparkle and shine all day! From festive parties to even casual errand days, we’ve handpicked pieces that bring on the glitter. But we’ll show you how you can wear them anywhere and anytime without looking like a disco ball. 


But for those fabulous occasions, we’ve also picked special pieces for evening wear that will make you the sparkling star of the night. 


Embellished Clothing


Shop the Dress and Jacket Set with Sheer Sleeves and Embellished Edges -Plus, $117.95


When you have outerwear that is embellished with sequins, beads, or rhinestones that shine when hit by the light, the way to dress it down is to wear casual clothing underneath. The embellished clothing item becomes your main accessory. 


You can pair them with plain shirts, jeans, and sneakers for a relaxed look with a hint of glam. Another way to dress down the shine is to pair with a similar color top underneath, casual pants, and strappy sandals. Minimize jewelry so a simple watch, or a bracelet and stud earrings, or just hoop earrings would suit the outfit perfectly.


Shop the KAII Beaded Front Vest, $104.95


Try these looks below:

Shop the Long Sleeve V-Neck Sweater, $69.95
Shop the Westport Incrediflex Denim Fit Solution 5 Pocket Skinny Jean, $52.95

Shop the Leigh Earrings, $39.95
Shop the Jean Claude Silver Breaded Stainless Steel Wrap Bracelet, $39.95




Shop the Beading Detail Cami Dress, $159.95


When you have innerwear to dress down, there are 2 ways to go. The first is to wear it under a jacket or cardigan to hide some of the shimmer. The second would be to layer it over a fitted top - whether short or long sleeves - making it your outerwear. The same principle of toning down on shiny jewelry applies so as not to make it look over the top. 


Shop the Kaii Beaded Embellishments Tank Top, $124.95


Here are some looks to try out that can bring you from day to night events with a few changes:

Shop the Solid Jogger Pant, $36.95

Shop the Dora Landa Patricia Long Sleeve Top, $47.95
Shop the Audrey Half Moon Shaped Earrings, $42.95

Shiny Fabrics

Shop the Dora Landa Chloe One Shoulder Long Sleeve Top, $64.95


Shiny fabrics such as satin, silk, and those with lurex shine texture are also normally used for more formal occasions but it doesn’t mean you can’t wear them during the daytime. These can also be dressed down for day events if you want to be able to wear something that will take you from day to night with just a few tweaks. 


For daywear, dress them down with jeans or very casual bottoms and shoes. Tuck in the blouse and cover it up with a jacket to decrease the luster. Wear simple accessories to tie the outfit together.


Then for night events, you can change your pants and simply remove the jacket to reveal your shimmer.

Evening Wear

When it comes to evening wear, you can go all out on the glitter and sparkles. Whether you choose to wear pant sets with shiny accents or heavily embellished beaded or metallic dresses, claim the radiant look and make it your own. These featured items will bring out the festive mood everywhere you go.
