Holiday Fashion 2010 – Sequins, Glitter & Sparkle, Oh My!

The holidays are officially in full swing, and there’s no doubt that many of us have festive cocktail parties and merry events in our future. With all the stress of the holidays, who has time to figure out what to wear? Well, not to fear because with this season’s hottest looks, you’ll be ready to go in no time! The best new fashion items for Holiday 2010 are shiny and bright, from sparkly sequined dresses to elegant vintage headbands. If you have to purchase just one piece this season, opt for one that glitters and glows – it’s the easiest way to dress up your favorite look, from cocktail dresses to jeans and tee!

Calvin Klein Sequin Tank Dress ($98, Nordstrom)

For those that really want to make an entrance, a dazzling sequin dress is the way to go! The styles of the season are sexy and sophisticated, and would look great as is or with a pair of tights and a bomber jacket. The key to pulling off such a stand out dress is to keep your accessories simple. Nude or black pumps are best, while a pretty pair of studs and a cocktail ring would finish off the look perfectly. Remember, the dress (and you) is the star, so no need to overdo it!

Sequin Front Tank ($39.90, Express)

If you want to rock the sequins but don’t think you can pull it off from head to toe, try a glimmering embellished tank or blouse. This festive style can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Wear it with a pair of black skinny pants for a sleek look, or layer it under a blazer with jeans for a casual chic feel. A stunning pair of chandelier earrings or a cuff bracelet would complement both looks beautifully.
