holiday trend alert: sequins

 

This holiday season is all about glitz and glam, and sequins are back — in a big way.  We’re not talking ‘80’s- style prom dress sequins, but a subtle and elegant dash of glitter that gives just the right amount of edge to any outfit. In fact, adding some sparkle to your look is not only one of 2011′s hottest trends — it’s also one of the easiest.  If you don’t already have your go -to sequin accessory, you need to get one before the holiday party circuit starts. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the glittery, most versatile pieces on the market. Get your shine on!

Clockwise from the top left: beret, $25 at Topshop; grey skinny scarf, $19 at myscarfshop.com, blazer, $158 at Victoria’s Secret, Kate Spade New York  Agatha bag, $295 at Neiman Marcus; three tiered sequin mini skirt, $79 at Express; Stripes glitter pump, $49 at Urban Outfitters.

Summer Stone

 

So the clock is ticking and you’re rushing off to yet another summer cocktail party! You throw on your basic white summer dress (old faithful).  Stand in the mirror and though you look bronzed and beautiful against this white number the outfit still falls short. What to do to brighten your summer wardrobe without cutting into your funds for the weekend? The answer: a classic piece of turquoise. Whether it’s a bold necklace, dangly earrings or a basic cuff, it’ll never disappoint.  This vintage, earth tone works with every summer style; it can give off a bohemian flare paired with casual attire or it can add a hint of earthy elegance to formal wear. I love how Cameron Diaz (shown above) knows how to rock the turquoise. Despite being dressed for the Red Carpet, she still maintains her surfer-chic vibe with these simple statement pieces.

What’s your go-to-flare when you need to spice up your style?
