Lookbook: Sparkle for the Season
Sparkle for the Season
By: Laura Lajiness
The holiday season is finally upon us! The most festive time of year, it’s your cue to up the ante when it comes to your wardrobe and break out your shiniest pieces, from stand-out sequins to shimmering velvet and glittering jewels. Whether your go-to is a glitzy mini dress, plush jumpsuit, or twinkling accessory, these razzle-dazzle pieces feel glamorous and luxe for every holiday event on your agenda.
With a full social calendar, we’re here to help you rethink sparkle and shine to shake things up—think high-octane separates, bold colors, and splashes of shine to liven up even the simplest sweater. Ready for some inspiration? Because it’s officially time to shine.
When you want to dial it up, disco-inspired dresses are a dazzling starting point, whether you’re into glimmering gold or high-shine silver. And don’t be afraid of mixing metals; in fact, we say the more the merrier! As a glitzy finish, go for a glittery earring in the opposite tone.
We love tried-and-true metallics during the holidays, but when you really want to stand out, go for vibrant shades and ombré tones.
Red and green are seasonal standards, but a deep shade of burgundy is a luxe alternative. Start by pairing a burgundy bodysuit with dark jeans, or rock the striking shade head to toe with a sumptuous jumpsuit.
If full-on shine isn’t for you, a dazzling accent by way of a bag or piece of jewelry can make just as much of an impact. Or, if you subscribe to a more-is-more aesthetic, keep the glitter going with a shimmering accessory on top of a metallic-flecked knit or velvet top.
We get it, a cozy, at-home gathering doesn’t always call for drama. But a twinkling string of lights can still make for a festive photo opp.
