There’s more to it than glitter and sequin; but they’re both a great place to start!
It’s the time of year that we’ve all been waiting for -- party season! For the everyday girl who’s always on the go, this is the one time of year when we all have an excuse to do the most and pull off our best glam #InstaWorthy looks. While sequin has become a staple trend for this festive time of year, there’s no harm in switching it up, going against the grain, and letting our own signature style shine through. From bold metallics to fiery animal prints, there’s plenty of sequin alternatives that’ll make you shine just as bright this holiday season. Here are our favorites, styled by some of our go-to style inspirations.
Metallic - For the Girl Who Wants All Eyes on Her
Shine, but not too bright! Opt for a sleek, subtle alternative to sequins that still stands out. Bold yet understated, a metallic piece can be the perfect statement for your New Year’s Eve look that you can easily transition into a permanent item in your wardrobe.
Animal Print - For the Babe Who’s Spicy & Sporty
The verdict is in; animal print is officially the new black. From a neutral snake print to a flirty cheetah print, there are countless ways to style them -- especially if you’re attending a more casual event, or looking to make a statement while staying comfortable. And yes -- mixing & matching animal prints is MILQ approved!
Crushed Velvet - For the Hopeless Romantic in Search of a Midnight Kiss
Crush velvet, not hearts in a bomb look that’s playfully understated in all the right ways. Crushed velvet brings volume and depth to any look, especially when it is paired with a rich jewel-tone that compliments your melanin.
Business Suit - For the Girl Who Clocks in Early & Clocks Out Late
Take your business mentality beyond the boardroom and head to your holiday party in a head-to-toe look that screams boss. Opt for a plaid pattern to add some extra spice, or wear a monochromatic suit topped off with fur to really steal the show.
Monochrome - For the Fashionably Fearless
Keep it cool in a monochrome look that’s easy to pull off, but hard to ignore. Add some extra flair by mismatching your accessories, or incorporate some sequins to show off your holiday spirit.
