Spark it up!

I love this festive season. The lights, the fancy clothes, the decorations... It's such a happy time. My favorite part of these winter months are the all over sparkle

The gold, silver and metallic shoes. The rhinestone accessories, bib necklaces, shiny bracelets, oversized rhinestone rings, sequined tops and bottoms, crystal embroidered bags, it's all about the bling, bling, bling!

The sparkle trend lightens up our dark hued winter wardrobe. When applying this trend, you need to stick to the "less is more" rule. Because anything that has bling catches the eye instantly, you don't want to go overboard and blind your audience. LOL. Therefore, the best way to make your point is by choosing one item, or concentrating on one area and applying it there. For example, if you are wearing black from head to toe, your metallic silver pumps will sparkle like there is no tomorrow! Do not add an extra necklace, or shiny purse or anyother accessory.

If you love bib necklaces, you can again choose an outfit that is black from head to toe, including your shoes, and add the sparkle around your neck.

Or maybe you have an oversized rhinestone ring that you would like to wear. Then only wear your ring to apply this trend, and keep the rest of your outfit simple, preferably single tone.

Here are some examples of the sparkle in the air:
