It’s Time To Glimmer in Eye-Catching Holiday Shimmer

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed yet, but the holiday season is on and it’s in full force. This is my favorite time of year, not just because of the warm, fuzzy feeling you get when you surround yourself with friends and family and engage in selfless giving, but I love the eye-catching clothing. Give me a full-on sequin gown to waltz into a holiday party and I’ll take full advantage! It’s time for celebration! So let’s make it as festive as possible, shall we? Put on your holiday shimmer fashion.

Holiday Shimmer On The Runway

Holiday shimmer was on the runways and we all saw it; and might I say, we all loved it! Shimmer and showmanship was well represented for fall 2018 and now we can look back at our favorite looks and replicate them for the holiday season. I honestly wish I had someplace to wear this sequin tailored suit designed by Tadashi Shoji. The golden color makes it even more delightful! Also on a golden note: this eclectic look by Tom Ford. I love the liquid sequins leggings paired with the incredibly sophisticated mixed print leopard coat. You’d think they wouldn’t pair well together, but somehow they are oh-so-right.

How To Wear Your Holiday Shimmer Fashion

Shimmer during this time of year is pretty typical, so there aren’t really that many surprises in store (or in the stores) for us. That means, it’s up to your inner stylist to find fresh ways to make it new again. The direction in which fashion and style has taken these last few seasons has been much more a la carte as opposed to one style fits all. So you can mix and match to your liking and really play up your personal style choices. Elevate a graphic tee by pairing it these Topshop golden satin peg pants and this Henri Bendel Waldorf Waterfall Necklace; you’ll have an eclectic spin on holiday shimmer that is truly enviable. Or you can go full glam with this Milly Elle sequin dress. The feathers up the ante and are my personal favorite detail on the dress. The most important thing to remember when putting together your holiday outfits is to have fun with it, don’t stress about it and enjoy your holidays in style!
