Rhinestones and diamonds are no longer just for black tie affairs, so prepare to dazzle at New Year’s celebrations and on Christmas Eve. There’s no reason the lights on the tree should steal the spotlight, so pair a black sequin dress with festive accessories and all eyes will be on you. Try a red velvet hair bow or headband with black nylon tights.
Take advantage of the natural setting around you, and pair gold with ivory to look like a snow angel. Try this dress from Delia’s, paired with nude heels, and you’ll be the star at any tree lighting ceremony or Christmas carol. Put silver and gold accessories on your wish list, and you’ll have a completed look.
If you don’t want to go all out, pair a classic holiday outfit, like a red dress, with especially sparkly accessories: glitter nail polish like OPI Pirouette My Whistle (it looks like snowflakes!), smokey eyes or an outfit with just a hint of glimmer, like this lace top with sequin stripes.
It’s not always ideal to break your resolution to save more money before the New Year even hits. To stay with the trends without breaking the bank, try alternatives like gold heels from Charlotte Russe, or a blazer from Forever 21, and you’ll be shining from head to toe in no time.
However, all that glitters isn’t always gold. It’s important to keep in mind that if you’re wearing a full-on silver sequin dress, keep the rest of your outfit understated to look classy and sophisticated, as opposed to slightly confused. It’d be a good choice to choose nude and natural makeup with this look.
Most importantly, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, so act like it! Confidence is key to a bold look like sequins and sparkle. Let your inner beauty shine, and you’ll be rocking any outfit with grace.
