As winter approaches, shoppers everywhere are trading in their frozen daiquiris and havaianas for eggnog lattes and cozy open-knit sweaters. The most prominent trend of all for the upcoming holiday season is embellishment- everything from sequins to glitter to beading. Embellishment has not only had an impact on apparel, but also on accessories, lingerie, beauty and home décor. It can be translated in direct ways- Jeffrey Campbell’s glitter booties and TopShop’s array of sequin dresses- and more subtle ways- Pamela Love’s chandelier earrings and Bobbi Brown’s glitter liquid eyeliner. If you’re preparing for a fabulous NYE fête, hosting a holiday dinner party or simply attracted to shiny things, look no further. Here are the products that’ll keep you sparkling this season:
-APPAREL: Pair this chic baroque bodycon dress with black tights, ankle boots and a stack of gold bangles.
-ACCESSORIES: Free People’s functional yet stylish beaded cross body is perfect for any occasion. Wear it with skinny jeans, a blazer and platforms by day and with a little black dress and pearl earrings by night.
