The holiday season is the perfect excuse to sport some glimmer in your outfits. Master the art of wearing sequins and glitters, and trust us, you can shine like a star. But as much as we encourage you to look your festive best for the festivities to come, we also advise that you keep everything in moderation. Of course, you don’t want to risk looking like a Christmas tree. But hey, don’t you worry; we know just how to school you on this shining, shimmering subject. In fact, we’ve enlisted some help from the stylish celebrities Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Barretto. Scroll down and learn how to stand out and sparkle as demonstrated by the teen stars themselves.
SIMPLE YET SLEEK
A sequined piece is already a statement in itself. Make it the star of your outfit by keeping everything in neutral shades. See how Julia opted for a white cropped tee and a pair of nude pumps to go with her shimmering green pencil skirt. Avoid too many colors and clashing prints that could only turn your look from classy to confusing.
Tone down the sparkles with something casual thrown in the equation. For instance, Kathryn’s joggers instantly made her #OOTD look more relaxed, yet she managed to keep things chic with a pair of pointy toe pumps.
Embellished co-ords? Why not! As long as you take cue from Julia who went for minimal accessorizing, you can nail this fun matchy-matchy look. Because again, you’re not a tree. So please do yourself a favor and leave the ornaments at home.
If you’re still hesitant about sequins and glitters, there’s no need to shoo away the entire idea. You can still opt for something subtle that’ll give you just the right amount of sparkle. Like Kathryn, choose a key piece with embellishments or metallic details. This should be enough to give the holiday vibe you need.
