Sequined pieces – whether a mini dress or a separate – will quickly glam you up. Try something sparkly this holiday season for an effortless result.
I scrolled through my Facebook feed scanning for something important when a post from my former mentor grabbed my attention, “only 11 days before the year ends!”. I was like, “Wait, what?” To be honest, I´ve been totally removed from the reality that we´re now on the last month of the year and that this last month is almost ending. I felt that we´re still at least a month away. Totally not 11 days away, right? But we are.
This must be due to our move. We recently moved to our newly purchased condo. The past three months was crazy – packing, cleaning, unpacking – all with a toddler in tow. It´s just me, my husband, and our little boy. Imagine how far you can go with a super active toddler and a husband who needs to work long hours. Thanks God I survived!
But that Facebook post from my former mentor forced me to look at the calendar. Girl, I don´t even have plans for the holidays yet. And that also means I haven´t planned for any party outfits yet. Have you?
Yet in times like this I don´t fret. I have a few tried and true go-to party outfits for whenever I´ve a party to attend and I haven´t got time to plan what to wear. All these are sequined outfits. There is something with sequined that quickly glams you up without appearing like you are trying too hard. I have a couple of sequined dresses and a few sequined separates, which I dress up and down depending on the occasion.
If you too haven´t had the time to prepare for the holiday parties ahead of time and you´re party-cramming, hear me, go for something sequined and sparkled. Here are some pieces that you should try.
Totally loving this dazzling mirrored mini skirt. For girls who live in cold places, this skirt will go with any black sweater or black turtleneck. Finish the look with some suede boots or some pointed-toe leather ankle boots. But if you´re in the tropics, wear it with a black cami top and some sling-back heels.
For a simple all-black, a sequined jacket will instantly bring interest to the look, plus it will keep your shoulders warm.
Keep it sexy and sparkly. Hair down. Bare legs. Strappy heels. Yes, yes, yes!
Enid Shimmer V Neck Sequin Dress
If you are to invest on a sequined dress, make sure it´s double-duty. This number, for example, is stunning as it is for warmer days but will also stun the same with under layers for colder days. Don´t miss the back part, it´s super sexy.
This is definitely not a winter look, but if you´re lucky to celebrate the holidays with a tropical weather, then this sparkly jumpsuit is a must. It´s festive, and a huge jump from black!
If you want to give your little black dress an edge, stick some rhinestones all over it (make sure to record a video of the process and post on Youtube, who knows? You´re DIY might be the next biggest viral) or just buy this dress from French Connection. It´s still available in most sizes.
Mathilde Knit High Neck Jumper
For winter nights, knits are surely your favorite. But this white turtleneck with a crystal necklace, worn with anything, will surely standout.
Now let me know, girls, are you into sequined and sparkly this holiday season?
