With Christmas parties and New Year’s Eve bashes just around the corner, we’ve brought you a wonderful little guide on how to wear glitter and shimmer and sequins – without looking like a Christmas tree ornament or a disco ball! As much as we love this trend, we’ve gotta warn ya, gals, you gotta be aiming for Beyoncé, not Rakhi Sawant.
Before we take you through some super-awesome looks and beauty products, let’s go over some important pointers, shall we?
To make things super-easy for you, we pick out five absolutely fab buys from Vero Moda and tell you what to pair these pieces with.
Look 1: Pair this rockstar top with a soft, flared tulle midi skirt. The contrast of the edgy top with the ethereal skirt will do the trick. This look is very strong, so remember to go easy on the embellishments. Put your hair up in a high messy bun for a rock-meets-ballerina look.
Look 2: Comfy, easy pants with a black cami spell casual chic. Throw on a gold sequinned jacket and go from sporty to glam in an instant. We’d suggest scrunching up the sleeves and adding on a leather-n-stud cuff for a very, very chic look.
Look 3: This dress is so stunning, it literally needs nothing else. But accessory-obsessed that we are, we’d pair this with a very simple, elegant gold haath phool. Dark berry lips and soft vintage-y waves, and you’re good to go!
Look 4: A personal favourite, this one’s channelling a very South-East Asia style. A long, loose black or off-white boyfriend shirt in silk or crepe paired with these shorts is sure to earn you mega style points. The shorts show just a couple of inches, playing peek a boo from under the shirt. Va va voom!
Look 5: For those of you not convinced that you can pull this trend off, this one’s ideal. With the embellishments just on the bodice of the maxi dress, you’re introducing glitter and shine in a small, manageable dose. Add on a maang tika in a contemporary style and a couple of delicate gold chain bracelets, and you’re a walking-talking goddess!
