holiday style – subtle sparkle

From top left: warehouse metallic leather mini skirt (similar here), asos collection holographic shift dress, asos foiled jacquard hitchcock dress  (also in tall), BA&SH tiare dress, true decadence metallic jacquard bardot dress, asos metallic tee and pencil skirt in glitter, asos pencil skirt in mixed print and jacquard, asos premium pencil dress in floral jacquard

It’s that time of year again. Holiday season. When women around the globe throw practical style to the wind and buy the most ridiculous short, tight, sequinned thing we can find. In the emotional rush that comes along with finding that short, tight, glittery thing (“OMG! It SPARKLES!!”), we overlook the fact that we will only be able to wear it one night of the year, with zero possibility of reuse.

With a closet full of overwhelmingly sparkly, overwhelmingly cheesy sequin bodycon dresses accumulated over a decade of New Year’s Eves (because you can’t wear the same one twice!), I have finally decided to put on my big girl pants – or skirt, or dress – and invest in some holiday wear with more subtle sparkle. Maybe something knee-length. Maybe something work party appropriate. Maybe even something I will wear again.

What’s your go-to holiday style?
