The holiday season is my favorite time of year for an endless amount of reasons. The joy, the goodies, the sparkles, the cheer and of course, the remembrance of Him.
Amongst all of the hustle and bustle, we tend to let a lot of the specialness of the holidays slip away as we prepare for the extravagant spreads and events. This holiday season, don’t let yourself disappear in all the craze, instead, shine, and embrace the spirit of the season in a dazzling dress that speaks for you!
If theres one time of year you can get away with a dress covered in sequins, decked out in glitter, or bedazzled from head to toe, it is now, and it’s about time we take advantage of these holiday beauties. For those of you who know me, well, we can all agree that I’ve got a thing of two for sparkles… hence, why this holiday trend (coming from me) is an absolute must.
As per usual, there are numerous amounts of options for wearing this sparkling trend. Whether your looking for a little bit of glitz or a whole gowns worth of shimmer, trust me, there’s something for you.
If your opting for a more subtle style, try starting with a sequin top, perhaps in a beige/gold or navy hue as both colors would look amazing worn with black skinnies, a leather jacket, a pair or pumps and a statement necklace or earring.
For those looking to go the extra mile, start by finding a dress that speaks to you and toning it down with sleek basic pieces such as a wool coat, leather jacket (for an edge), or a poncho for warmth and paring with classic shoes such as strappy nude heels, solid knee high boots (such as these from Target) for shorter dresses, or a basic black stiletto.
However you chose to style this trend, you’re sure to be looking as stunning as can be. So go ahead, splurge a little, and let yourself shine and ring in the new year looking nothing short of fabulous!
