The holidays are just around the corner and what better way to celebrate this time of year than with a little sparkle on your sleeve! The key to having your shining moment is to use beading and sequins in a tasteful way. I recommend choosing one bold piece and keeping the rest of your look simple. Here, I have handpicked 3 pieces that you can’t go wrong with!

First, is my sparkle collared blouse for all occasions. This is perfect for my working girl and to take your look from day to night! Throw this blouse on with slacks, tuck it into a skirt, or wear it as pictured with denim trousers! The sparkle on the sleeve cuffs and collar make it the perfect match with a blazer jacket. If you are wearing as an accent with your blazer, pull out the collar and slightly flip up your jacket sleeve to show the fun details.

The second look demonstrates one of the newest ways to shine. Fabric with sheen is the perfect understated way to wear sparkle. With this seasonal skirt, we added a very simple neutral top with a splash of texture to add interest. Add a blazer for work or a statement necklace for your holiday dinner!

The last look is for my girl who wants to rock the sidewalk like it’s a New York runway! Simple beading in a bold way is what I love. This tunic is a personal favorite because the soft color balances the bold beading. It pairs perfectly with brown or black tones. We combined it with a long comfy cardigan and leggings. Add boots and out the door you go! This is a look for any day, any time.

If you are unsure on how to shine this season, start with accessories! Statement jewelry and hair accessories are the perfect start to boost your basics. As the holidays go on, try to add sparkle in different ways to see what is right for you!
