STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sunglasses And Sequins

Style Advice of the Week

One of my fashion weaknesses is anything that sparkles and glimmers in the light, and it just so happens that sequins give that lustrous effect. Add a pair of trendy shades and you’ve got yourself a slammin’ summer outfit, just like this Fashionista.

Her purple sequin dress is perfect for an afternoon of shopping. The cut out heels give an edgy twist to her sparkly sequins and they also look pretty comfortable to walk around in. Her bag adds a splash of designer to her look, and it is tied together with her cute square framed sunglasses. These will look good on most faces and the style is super-hot and sizzling for the summer.

At a closer glance, this Fashionista is also rocking some stunning silver rings and colorful nail polish. The light blue on her fingers and lime green on her toes are a pop of color for this darker toned outfit.
This sparkly trend can be found on the runways of Guy Laroche, Jenny Packham, Rachel Zoe, and Theyskens.

To achieve a similar look to this fabulous Fashionista, try the Pisarro Nights Drape Back Sequin Dress in champagne from Nordstrom. This classy dress is at the other end of the color spectrum from this Fashionista’s frock, but it still has that beautiful shimmer and shine. For a cute, comfortable heel, check out sway chic. These black triangle shaped wedge heels give a dark twist to a pretty dress.

To tie the outfit together, add some accessories! For a Louis Vuitton bag, try the Petit Bucket bag; at under two hundred dollars, it is quite the steal. Pacsun has cute sunglasses with options that have that brown square framed look. 

Emulating this Fashionista's jewelry, the Sterling Silver Heart Cut Out Ring, Sterling Silver Double Band Wavy Ring and Sterling Silver Solid Wavy Ring are all under twenty dollars each, a splendid deal for the saving savvy Fashionista’s out there.

Last, but definitely not least is the nail color. For a cute Tiffany blue nail color, try China Glaze in Audrey. Top it off with Essie Luxe Effects for a shimmery sparkly look. For trendy toes, try SEPHORA by O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in It’s Totally Karma. This cute shade will have your toes looking as green and fresh as the grass this summer.
