Why save the glitz until after dark?

By Beginning Boutique | 19th October 2016

Glistening fabrics and dazzling sequins are all the rage this season after making a glittering appearance in London, Paris and New York Fashion Week shows, from Balmain to Burberry.

The runway look has now hit the streets and the new modern take on sparkles has us wondering why we bother saving the glitz until after dark. It’s time to add a bit of sparkle to your everyday look!

We know that sparkles before twilight may be a bit out of your comfort zone, so here are our top tips for pulling off the ultra-luxe look in daylight hours.

1. Keep It Casual

Lily Aldridge’s pre-Met Ball outfit epitomises the casual sequins look. The sparkly dress/denim jacket duo she wore in the hours before twilight proves you can trade in the glitz and glamour for a modern daytime look. The aim is to look like you just threw the outfit together, so pair your fabulous dress, skirt or top with a leather jacket, or go with Lily’s dreamy denim style.


2. A Little Goes a Long Way

For the less daring ladies out there, instead of going for the Kim Kardashian and North West look of twinning head-to-toe sequins, try something with a subtle touch of sparkle, whether it be a top, skirt or clutch. Adding just a little hint of glitz to your outfit can make a world of difference!



3. All about the shoes

If you are aiming for a casual daytime look, stay away from heels; they’ll transform your outfit instantly into after-dark attire. Stick to your trusty flats or even work with sneakers to keep the style comfortable and casual.
