SPARKLE & SHINE
Remember clothes shopping when you were little? It was so much easier back then. If it was pink, we wanted it. If it was frilly, it was in the bag. And if it was shiny or covered in sequins, it was an automatic YES.
These days, our shopping habits are a little more complicated… except for the sequin thing, that one still applies. Ha ha! We’re glad it does though because this season, they’re back with a vengeance! Along with sparkles, metallics and anything else that shines.
Think sequin covered skirts, slinky silver tops and shiny jackets. Glittery accessories are also on the list. This trend is fun, flirty and glamorous – just what we wanted for Spring! Here’s how to wear it well…
Sequins make up a major part of this sparkle and shine trend. If you don’t want to go too bold straight away, stick to a silver sequined skirt and pair it with a grey top and heels. Throw in a pair of retro sunnies for a truly fashion-forward look.
If you feel like you need a bit of encouragement to try a metallic pleated skirt, take this as us being your biggest cheerleaders! These stunning skirts made a short appearance mid 2015 and now they’re back, just in time for Spring. We love the look of a gold or silver skirt paired with a plain white T, sunnies and sneakers.
Sparkles, sequins and metallics are supposed to be bold, so don’t be scared to go all out. Turn a gorgeous gown into a daytime look by teaming it with sunnies and a shirt.
If you're looking to ease your way in to the trend, and can't quite commit to dresses or skirts, then the easiest way to give it a try is with accessories. Add a little interest to your outfit with a sparkly clutch or pair of metallic shoes.
