Sequins, Sparkles: We Say Welcome To The Holidays!

Wearing sequins and sparkles is an easy way to get into the holiday spirit. From a subtly sparkly top to a sophisticated gold pencil skirt to a pretty patterned dress the key is learning to mix and match while obtaining that classic festive look that you desire.

Keeping up with the styles and trends can be exhausting and sometimes even impossible. Plus, with the holidays coming up, fashion becomes even more important. Many first impressions and holiday meet and greets require you to stay up to date and even ahead of the curve in regards to fashion. Your little black dress may be your staple piece to fall back on (we all have one) but this season, it’s time to break out of your comfort zone and be adventurous.

With the evolution of the plus size industry, we are taking all fashion challenges head on!

First and foremost, just because your little black dress is a dress, doesn’t mean all of your go to pieces need to be dresses. Try pairing straight legged pants with an exciting top littered with sequins. Make sure to balance the outfit out; the pants should be matte and your shirt should be sparkling. Navy, red and gold sequined shirts are the most favorable because they don’t go over the top, such as pink sequins shirts do. On that note, your little black dress is a classic for a reason: its simplicity.

Don’t overdo your sequined shirt by pairing it with feathers or rhinestones, or you run the risk of being that girl who “tried WAY to hard”, and no one wants that.

It’s no wonder women approach the holidays with dread: trying to coordinate outfits, gifts, travel and parties can overload even the most organized woman. Instead of trying to match up dressy separates, try a little black dress this season. Not only is it universally flattering, it will take you to almost any event in style. Just add accessories and you’re set. Your hair should look uncomplicated as well. Opt for sexy half-up/half-down styles or pull your hair back into a low ponytail. Keep your makeup simple, but special: sometimes all it takes is a great red lipstick to dress it all up!
