The New Year is upon us and for a night sparkle and shine reign king. It represents the celebratory and hopeful sense we have going into a fresh year. But, who says it has to be confined to this famed night?
Let's give sparkle a chance at being in the same lane as denim. Let's make it more of a staple and less of a one-time thrill. By definition "sparkle" means:
1. a : to throw out sparks
b : to give off or reflect bright moving points of light
c : to perform brilliantly
2. EFFERVESCE <wine that sparkles>
3. to become lively or animated <the dialogue sparkles with wit>
I don't know about you, but I am down for having all the above define a daily outfit. It is tough to argue against sparkle's charisma when the definition is "to perform brilliantly." When I see shine dance off someone's garment, I cannot help but smile. There is a warm-fuzzy, enthusiastic energy to this embellishment and I'll be damned to limit it to one night a year.
Long live sparkle in the daylight paired with your worn-in denim and favorite sneakers. Dress it down to get down with the fact that a little shine never hurt anyone. Boost your mood and your style by labeling it a new staple; the latest star of your wardrobe.
If folks flash you an odd look, let it reflect right off your sequins.
