Blingy clothing is the in thing!
Yes, you heard it right. Bling is the new black. It is the newest fashion rage that almost every woman finds irresistible. It goes without saying that bling demands being worn tastefully. The shiny, jazzy and eye-catching appeal of bling tops and dresses has caught the fascination of one and all. One can choose to wear bling during day or night, just that the individual style will of course, differ. For parties, cocktail dresses and gowns in bling add just the right dose of shimmer and luxuriance, while for tops, skirts or blazers, bling can make a bold style statement on various occasions.
However, one needs to be cautious with bling as it can be a bit tricky. Sequins are the most commonly seen form of bling on an outfit, but it must not be overdone, as that kills the very purpose of it. Smaller sequins are always classier than larger ones; also, one should wear only one sequined item at a time. Though ideally bling dresses and gowns are best suited as evening-wear, you can make it appropriate for daytime purposes by pairing a particular bling outfit with minimal accessories. Black, gold, white and silver are the best colours for bling; too much experimentation with colours, in this case, and you can end up looking more like a Christmas tree. If you’re a little doubtful as to whether a full-fledged bling attire will suit your personality, you can opt for a sequined crusted jacket, that works wonders with a t-shirt and jeans combo. Stylists suggest that the so-called “boyfriend” jacket, in this context, a sequined one, with denim shorts and a sheer top can give you that chic party look. If you’re choosing to go bolder with bling top, in chiffon or otherwise, then pair it with skinny fit jeans or trousers in neutral colours. A duffle bag or a tote bag will complement your look perfectly.
Though bling is primarily associated with crazy night outings or high-profile red carpet events, even for a daytime brunch, bling can prove to be your thing if you know how to pay meticulous attention to close details. Though it takes confidence, a mild, nude colour will not go wrong. Keep your accessories as simple as you can, as the bling already adds to the glimmer factor. The make-up should also be minimalistic, or the attention will shift away from the dress itself. A light neckpiece and thin silver or metallic bangles in one hand does the trick. Add to that a pair of small crystal earrings or diamond studs, and a sophisticated box clutch and you’re good to go.
