Shine. We see it all over-on dresses, shoes, and on every article of clothing or accessory we can find. It’s even on our nails. You have seen it on reality TV shows. I bet the girl next to you on the subway this morning was wearing some form of it. The Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, rocked Calypso St. Barth party pants, (which I still want, someone help a girl out). The allure of something shiny and metallic is almost like praying to the Lady Gaga gods. It’s fabulous and eye-catching. And who doesn’t want to fabulous and eye-catching?
This Fashionista embodies the shine trend through amazing accessories. Pairing Sam Edelman spiked loafers and a headband makes her Jack Wills outfit stand out among a sea of neutrals. It gives that added touch to make her cardigan and and leggings combo different than all others on the streets of D.C. In addition, her metallic and shiny accessories give an edge to a very feminine outfit.
Got a Formal coming up soon? Try standing out from everyone in a shiny dress. If you’re not quite ready to rock a bold frock, a cute phone case is a good way to go. Sequined tops are a solid bold look, while metallic sandals are a great alternative to basic black sandals. Metallic headbands can complement a sleek hairstyle. As always, those party pants are a must. Pair with a blazer and nude heels and you’ll be ready to party.
