Yes, the holidays look and feel different this year, but now is not the time to give up and let Covid steal your sparkle. These days, running errands, baking, picking up take-out, or binge-watching classic holiday movies on the couch are opportunities to swap out the black yoga pants for something more festive, in order to feel a bit more put together and in the spirit of the holiday season. Don’t save your sparkle for parties or nighttime. Go bold in a pair of all over sequin joggers (on sale at Express PRESS GREY HERE | BLACK HERE) or more subtle in (THIS) pair; adorned with sparkly stars (now on sale for under $20 | PRESS HERE). Even a pair leggings (under $20, HERE) or sparkly slippers (LIKE THESE), will give you a feeling of a entire new level of festiveness.
Looking to feel festive, but not overdone?
Let’s see what the ladies of Stylish Monday have to say on shinning bright this holiday season!
Emma of The Style Splash – I bought this “Golden Girl” sweater last winter, and when it popped up in an Instagram memory I thought it would be perfect for this theme. It seems I’m not the only one who loves it because I’ve seen several celebrities wearing it on TV in the last week. True to the slogan I had to add more gold; I finally managed to get hold of these gold boots after patiently waiting for months for them to become available on eBay in my size (they sold out very quickly in Zara). I think they were worth the wait!
Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge – I recently found this sequined mini skirt on a thrifting adventure for something sparkly for another style challenge. I ended up wearing something different for that one so I was excited about this style theme to wear the skirt. I added my floral sequined boots, a leopard print sweater, and my faux fur coat (also thrifted) with statement gold jewelry for my shiny festive outfit in black, tan, and gold. It never hurts to add some sparkle and shine to our days! Happy Holidays!
Nina of Sharing a Journey – It’s that time of year when glitter and glitz, sequins and bows can and should be worn daily! Hop over to lift your spirits and add a little glitter to even the smallest of things.
Andy of Pearls and Pantsuits – I’ve had this jacket for a while and just love the subtle pop of sparkle on the sleeves, so when I found the fully sequined top at TJMaxx I just knew it would work well with that jacket and so many other things in my closet! It’s a lovely rose gold color and is lightweight enough for our warmer Louisiana winter weather. I adore the sparkle! Give me all the sparkle!
Julie ofFashion Trends and Friends – Can a girl ever wear or have too many sparkles? I think not! This month’s theme is totally in my wheelhouse! I love and am most attracted to all things sparkly: rhinestones, glitter, shimmery threads and material, metallics, and the more sequins the merrier! I know that December is typically the month to shine but why not all year long? Since we’re staying home more than ever and wearing more leisure wear than perhaps we have in the past, I’m really excited that current trends are incorporating sparkles into leisure wear! Being fancy and sparkly brings me great joy even if I’m only sitting on Zoom all day! If over the top sparkle isn’t your thing, it can be super easy to just have a touch sparkle! Shine on Friends!
Nancy of Nancy’s Fashion Style – I am looking for a perfect gold sequin top for months now but can’t find it! So annoying! However….I do have this gorgeous rose gold shiny metallic kinda skirt. Very glowy and perfect for the holidays with a gorgeous black blouse and black heels. But for now, I am wearing it for these cold days before!
Amy of Amy’s Creative Pursuits – Since Christmas will be spent in the comfort of our home this year I decided to create a comfy casual yet sparkly outfit at the same time. I paired comfy jeans with a sequined tank and then I added even more sparkle and shine with jewelry and fun gold sandals.
Michele of Seechele_styles – My sequined top is thrifted, the camo joggers are from Walmart and my sneakers are from SHEIN. It’s a party on the top, and casual on the bottom, showing you can mix it up.
Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood – This has been the year of rediscovering my closet – COVID and all – so I am wearing an outfit featuring pieces I have owned, like this fitted cropped beaded+sequined hot pink tank top styled beautifully with a maroon shimmery tweed skirt (love that asymmetrical ruffle). I went for a monochrome look by pairing it with these cranberry studded suede booties. Between the top, my rhinestone hair clip, my jewelry, and my gorgeous gold tree I got a lot of sparkle in this look. Tis the season to Shimmer and SPARKLE!!
Nicole of High Latitude Style – Being a dancer sparkle is my thing. Can you imagine a ballroom gown without Rhinestones or sequins? Of course, the sequins also can be worn at day.
My outfit is an elevated take on one of my everyday uniforms: flare jeans + t-shirt + topper jacket. By swapping out my plain white tee for this thrifted sequin rocker tee (SIMILAR @TARGET | HERE | AND HERE ) and velvet duster, I felt a whole new level of festiveness. How can you sparkle and shine brighter this holiday season?
