All That Glitters


      So the holiday season is right around the corner and it's never to early to start planning outfits! So I've been seeing a lot of this style lately and I found many ways to work it into ensembles. The look I'm talking about is glitter! This trend has come and gone over the years but this year I am super excited to try it out! I plan on trying this trend on Thanksgiving tomorrow at my family dinner but maybe also working it into many of the holiday festivities such as, family Christmas parties, work Christmas parties, New Years festivities and other places where you have an occasion to dress up! I've see this style worked many ways, sometimes casual, sometimes super dressed up and sometimes barely even there! I'll take you through my interpretation of this trend step by step, date by date!

Casual: Okay! So the first way that I've seen this look, and my personal favorite variation of this look is the
half casual, half dressy look. What I mean by this is you pick one piece of the ensemble to make glittery and fabulous and then make sure the rest of the look is relaxed. A good rule of thumb to use is make sure that the part of your outfit that you're making shine complements your best asset  since the shine will attract all eyes!

All Over Sparkle: The next look is a little more dramatic but also very cute. This look may seem hard to pull off but with the right type of dress for your body,this can work for everyone. A good rule of thumb to keep in mind is remembering to go natural for the rest of your look. With this kind of dress it can be easy to be caught off guard, but it's best to balance the glitter with a natural eye and natural shoes.

 Just A Peek: This last look is probably the easiest to pull off. These dresses are fun and flirty by just showing a hint of glitter. I would suggest wearing these dresses with a shimmery heel to help add to the effect, but only if there is just a hint of glitter, if not go with the rule mentioned above!

So there ya go! Just an idea of a fun way to spice up the usual holiday outfit! Send us your favorite holiday look or any ideas you want us to go over.
