2016 here we come! Are you excited for the new year? I am! Even though every day offers a fresh start, there's nothing like the feeling of a brand spankin' new year. But before we get to goal setting and resolutions, let's party! 

Do you know what you are going to wear to your New Year's Eve party? You know it has to sparkle, and in my opinion you can't have enough. May I suggest an all sequin dress like this silver one? 

To keep yourself warm try pairing a faux fur jacket, black leather jacket or a tuxedo blazer.

Clothing That Shines

When I was a little girl, I remember shopping with my mom and always running toward the shiny satin fabrics and sequined dresses. And every year, when my dance costumes arrived for my approaching recital I would always choose the outfit with the most sequins as my favorite. Back then and even now, I would jump to wear these Top Shop sparkles below.


Spring and summer clothes are always so bright and happy, but one thing you rarely see is sparkle and shine. The fall and winter fashion seasons are always sprinkled with glitter and sequins, and, in my opinion, makes the cooler months superior. haha!

Yes, metallic fabrics, head-to-toe sequins and giant gems can be gaudy at times, but I think every gal needs something sparkly in her wardrobe even if it's a giant jeweled collar or sparkly shoes likes these Kate Spade ones.

Check out some shiny, affordable options below and add some sparkle to your closet!

All That Glitters

sequinsI remember being a kid and loving anything that sparkled. Then I learned that sequins were tacky after the early 90's ended and we haven't really seen them come back without that stigma until now. Add some glitter to your closet this fall with some sequined shoes, dress or top. I promise, it won't be considered tacky.
