Year-end holiday time is an opportunity to add a little glamor to your evenings and joy to your days. It’s a time of year when we all have permission to be dazzling. Here are ways to add sparkle to your holiday wardrobe that will give you a little seasonal glitter and glow.
Shiny metallics show up in dresses, skirts, tops, and accessories, including belts, scarves, and wraps. Choose one part of your ensemble to showcase a metallic look. Too much can look gaudy, but a clutch or cross-body bag, a blouse, or a shiny pair of heels will glam up your get-up tastefully.
Get Sequined or Crystal Hair Accessories
You can find headbands, “fascinator” hats, clippies, or scrunchies with sequined or crystal accents that brighten up your appearance. They catch the light and give you a bit of glow for your holiday get-togethers.
Transform Your Nails
Even if you’re not the manicure type, you could make an exception for a special holiday look. Fingernails can be accessories in themselves! Apply sparkly crystals to your nails or splurge and have a professional nail tech do it for you.
Put a Subtle Shimmer on Your Skin
Another way to add sparkle to your holiday wardrobe is to think of your face and shoulders as part of your look. A little glittery eyeshadow or a subtle dusting of cosmetic-grade glitter powder creates a festive look. Just go easy on it—you don’t want to end up looking like the tin man in Oz!
Wear Dramatic Earrings
Pair some sparkly, glamorous chandelier earrings with a little black dress, and you’ll have a standout holiday look. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of styles to choose from, including those with crystals, beads, sequins, or metal mesh. Of course, there’s always the option to go for earrings shaped like ornaments, wreaths, trees, or stars.
Have a happy and safe holiday season sparkling with joy!
