Bloggers Rock the Colors of Christmas :: Silver Sparkles

Here is my "oh-so-late" entry to the gorgeous Collete's "Bloggers Rock the Colors of Christmas" post. My color of choice for the holiday is: silver sparkles. In the midst of this joyful season, I couldn't help but pull out my favorite sparkly dress to spice up my holiday attire.
This holiday season is all about glitz and glam, and sequins are back. We're talking about a subtle and elegant dash of glitter and shimmer that gives you just the right amount of edge to any outfit. Whether it be a full sequined blazer, glitz on a stiletto, or a touch of shimmer to your eyelids or nails, this bedazzling touch can be added to anything!
I love pairing grays and beiges with sparkles as it allows the sequins to shine on its own for that subtle edgy look. Please excuse the rain boots - due to the misty rain I had to improvise. Take note that not all sequin silhouettes are investment worthy, make sure to seek for quality items that will not fall off in the wash. And as always, when picking a trend to be the main statement of the look, be sure to keep your accessories simple. Or in my case none at all, unless you count the fur embellishment which is a must for the winter season!
 While sparkle is always appropriate for a special event, now you can feel free to sparkle in the day time too! Sequins are ready for their day-time debut when paired with a contrasting piece in a casual fabric such as denim or knits. For a causal look pair an over-sized comfy sweater with a sequin mini or a denim button down with sequin shorts. The possibilities are endless so spice up your holiday wardrobe, whether day or night, by adding that touch of shimmer today!
