14 Ways to Shine This Summer — Day or Night
We usually reserve sequins and flashy fabrics for evenings out. But in the midst of an ongoing pandemic, date nights and girls’ nights out aren’t always options. So we have to get creative when it comes to getting our summer sparkle fix.
Think sequins and liquid-looking metallics can’t work in the heat? Tom Ford begs to differ. The designer’s entire Spring 2022 collection was sparkle-centric. And the concept actually translates off the runway. Unlike some other questionable seasonal trends.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to shine no matter the time of day. From cropped tops to dresses and even miniskirts, retailers currently have numerous options to offer. There’s even a glitzy pair of flats that’ll literally make any outfit.
While mixing metallics works up on the runway, the key to wearing sparkly items during daylight IRL is to only rock one per ensemble. (Save head-to-toe sequins for future special occasions.) If you want to shimmer on a subtle level, look for metallic knit pieces. These fabrics incorporate a touch of sparkle so you can glisten without blinding those around you.
Ready to shine? Yeah, we thought so. Simply scroll down to see how to get your summer sparkle on.
