How to Wear: All That Glitters

 Adding a little sparkle to your life (or at least your closet) is easier than you might think. Details such as sequins or metallic are a great way to make your look more modern. However, you don't want to resemble a Christmas tree or a member from the cast of Dynasty. Here are a few simple ideas to embrace the sparkle and shine trend.

 Start with simple with accessories: If you want to add a bit of visual interest to your look, try pairing some statement-making shoes with great fitting jeans and a structured blazer. Or play with art deco inspired headbands to give your locks a little pizzazz.

Silver and Gold: Our Grandmother's would have never dared to the mix two metals. Today it's no longer a fashion taboo, it's a huge trend! I love the look of silver and gold jewelry because it looks so modern and even a bit rebellious.

Making a statement: Designer Christophe Decarnin for Balmain caused a sensation when he sent sequin covered frocks down the runway for fall. The look is chic and sexy, but isn't too practical if you don't have a movie premier to attend. Embrace the trend by sporting a flirty sequin top with relaxed trousers.
