Bling, glitter, sequins, sparkle… whatever you call it, adding it to an outfit can be a sure-fire way to glam it up! Whether you prefer something big and bold, or more subtle, there is sure to be a suitable suggestion for you here. Do you prefer to add your sparkle to your makeup? Or perhaps you like to wear it loud and proud in your outfits. Read on for some suggestions…
Wanting to add a little sparkle to your makeup? Glittery lipgloss is old news; now it’s all about metallic eyeshadows. Designer makeup brand Stilla do a metal foils collection that comes in a whopping 12 colours. While not cheap, a little goes a long way.
Would you love some sparkly shoes but just can’t seem to fit in the right pair for you? Maybe you have trouble with the right sizes, or have to keep your shoe-spend to a minimum? Whether you’re wanting dazzlingly flats, heels or wedges, how about considering shoe clips? They’re often more affordable than buying a pair of shoes, and due to their design, they’re removable. This means you can pop them onto any of your shoes, be that on the front or back or side! Consider sequin bows for a cute look, or a traditional, brooch-like clip for a more traditional look.
If you want to wear sparkle on your outfit, it can be kinda tricky not to look too dressed up. Wear too much and you’ll look like you’re headed to a nightclub, not the office. This is where the sequined jacket comes in. Sported by celebrities the world over, it really is the safe middle ground of wearing sparkles via your clothing. Pair it with a block colour dress, or a white shirt and smart jeans. If you feel a little overdressed, you can easily slip it off. Or, if you’ve been wearing it during the day and want to dress it up for the evening, add heels and some big earrings.
Belly button ring
This is a fantastic option when summer is on its way. Crop tops are in fashion once again this season, meaning you’ll be wanting to bare your midriff. Whether you’re headed shopping or to the beach, a belly button ring is a subtle yet sexy way of adding a little pizazz! You can buy belly button piercing online, or find a local piercing boutique and browse their range in-store.
A super versatile option, glitter nails can be achieved either at home or in a nail salon. Just make your choice depending on your budget- and maybe how much of a steady hand you have! If you choose to go in store, you’ll have access to lots of different methods. How about glitter tips on your manicure, for a sparkly twist on a classic look?
Wear your sparkles where everyone can see them, include you! Your hands, of course. Start making a collection of gorgeous vintage rings. Look in flea markets and antique jewellery stores. Build up your collection slowly, over a few months or even years. Look for gems, too; emeralds, rubies and sapphires always look stunning.
