Day Sparkle

(doughnuts - DELICIOUS!)

Holiday season is behind of us and the next one is not coming for a while. And what should we do with all of that shiny stuff that we stocked up on? I refuse to leave it in the back of my closet until next Christmas and am saying “NO TO SPARKLE HIBERNATION”!

Now sequins and lurex are very much welcome in our daytime attire and can even be a part of the office dress code. The clue to successful integration of sparkles into both business and casual outfits is moderation and balance. Only one shiny piece should be in a day look and the rest of the outfit should be VERY neutral. Classic and even conservative jacket with a sequin dress, shimmery blouse with dressy suit or simple sweater with a pair of sparkly trousers – these are very good examples of non-evening looks with some shine. Obviously nothing can be done with a beaded cocktail gown; even a motorcycle jacket with combat boots won’t transform it into a day dress!

Michael Kors offers us quite a few great options of 24-hour appropriate looks with some serious sparkle, combining safari green and gold anorak with belted sequin jumper, sequined jersey tank with gold-painted chino pants, and twill patch-pocket jacket with rib top and sequined deep-pocket pants. Notice that he kept all accessories very neutral and almost exaggerated casual to tone down the festivity of shiny pieces.

I love shine and sparkle in clothes, shoes and accessories and sometimes just putting those pieces on is enough to start your day with a great mood. They bring holiday into snacking in a doughnut shop or just strolling around the town!
