Daytime Sparkle


Sequins - strictly for after dark? I think not! I like working a little sparkle motion into my daytime attire. The key to avoiding the Jazzercise / Vegas Showgirl look is to limit the shiny to one piece during the day time hours.


Instead of throwing on a full sequined dress, try a tee or a cardigan with some sequins in a neutral color like black, grey or beige. Throw on a sequined scarf underneath a trench on a rainy day! Or for a very subtle touch, sparkly shoes under a great pair of jeans and a neutral sweater look super-chic. In this case, I threw on what is normally a skirt reserved for the cocktail hour, but layered it underneath a casual tank and chambray top. Flat shoes help keep the look grounded, not glam.

Would you wear daytime sparkle? How do you keep on the sophisticated edge of shiny?
