ALL IN THE DETAILS: Just Add Glitter

All In The Details

There’s something you need to know about me — I’m obsessed with glitter. I add glitter to every outfit if at all possible. So when I saw this Fashionista on the street rocking her glittery Keds I immediately fell in love with her outfit. An added touch of glitter to any outfit takes it from simple to glam. Seriously, it works with any outfit. If you add a glittery headband to your T-shirt and cut-off denim short ensemble, you instantly look like an off-duty model. If you add a glittery skinny belt to a simple mini dress you’ll be ready for any event from girls day to date night. I pair my gold Keds with leggings for a comfortable yet stylish look when going to early classes or walking to the dining hall. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you I have a touch of glitter on almost every outfit I wear. This Fashionista is a girl after my own heart.

What I love about this Fashionista’s outfit is that she kept the colors of her outfit simple and monochromatic. Since her black sneakers are a focal point she matched them with a black and white dress. The pattern of the dress makes the outfit anything but boring while still allowing the special detail of glitter to be noticed. This is not to say that the same look could not be achieved with a touch of color. These sneakers would go perfectly with a red dress for a retro-glam look. This goes to show how versatile glittery sneakers are, especially in black glitter. Silver or gold are also great choices for a glittery shoe. If you are adventurous, a multicolored glitter shoe is also a fun addition to an outfit.

How To: When in doubt, just add glitter! Keds offers comfortable casual sneakers with or without glitter. These glittery Keds from the Keds x Hollister Co. campaign are extra sparkly. Sperry Top-Siders are also a good choice for a casual look with their boat shoes. Glittery Bahama Sperry Top-Siders can be worn with dresses or shorts for a preppy touch. Vans are another popular casual sneaker option. Vans come in a variety of colors including glittery ones like these Shimmer Authentic Vans. These sneakers look similar to Vans and have a touch of sparkle. Any of these shoes can be paired with a dress like the Fashionista pictured paired hers. They can also be paired with jean shorts, skinny jeans or leggings to add a fashionable and girly touch. In glittery shoes you’ll leave a trail of sparkle wherever you go.
