New Year’s Eve has always been synonymous with sparkle and glamour but this year it seems like sequins have truly taken over our favorite department stores. We love the glittery trend but there is a fine line between looking festive and looking like you have joined a chorus line. Here are our tips for participating in the sequins trend while still looking sophisticated and fabulous.
Keep the sparkle understated and elegant by looking for separates that can be worn with classic pieces you already have. Adding neutral accessories will also keep this look age appropriate for a festive New Year’s Eve party with friends. Add your favorite shade of Lipstick (we love Sheer Lipstick in capri) and a little luminescence with the Shimmer Brick in gleam and you are set to ring in the New Year!
If you are going to go for all over sparkle we suggest keeping the silhouette streamlined and classic. The look can stay sophisticated while still looking radiant with sleek accessories and a bold red lip. To get the perfect red lip try Lipstick in cabaret and add a few spritz of Shimmer Dust in sleigh bell silver for a little extra glamour.
Another key to keeping sequins age appropriate is finding pieces in rich, saturated hues. This keeps your look refined and timeless. With the appropriately named Protecting Lip Treatment in champagne punch and Eye Shadow in diamond you will be counting down to the New Year in sophisticated style!
