It's glitzy, it's glittery, and most of us love it. It's sparkle, and it should be a wardrobe staple. Trouble, most people think they can't pull off sparkle without looking like a showgirl.Well as a avid supporter of sparkly, I can tell you that it has its benefits.Sparkle throws light onto the face. It gives the face a unique glow, and who doesn't want that?
But back to the myth.Anti-sparkle people harbor under the delusion that you can't wear sparkle without looking like you should be in a floor show at a drag club on the Vegas strip. This is untrue.
The WRONG Way
All those pieces together are bound to give someone a seizure. If you separate the outfit you see that sparkle has a place in every outfit.
Sparkly skirts like this one (and others) are best paired with neutrals, so your outfit isn't competing with itself.
With sparkly tops, you have to be careful. Too tight and it looks like you're auditioning for an adult film. Too loose and you look shapeless. By tucking in the too-loose shirt and covering up the tight top, your outfit looks more unique, as opposed to.......unclean.
See? Sparkle isn't evil. Sparkle is your friend. Treat it right and it will do the same.
