A touch of sparkle, shimmer and shine can definitely add all the right hits of glitz and glamour to your look. Follow these tips to add bling to your look perfectly…

If you’re look to ensure your look is bold and eye-catching, you can’t go wrong with a touch of bling. We share our top tips to nail the look perfectly.

Not all bling is the same

There are several options to choose from when it comes to adding sparkle to your look. You can go for sequins, jewels or glitter for a sweet and shiny look. Alternatively, if you prefer something edgier you can select items that feature studs, chainmail or zips instead.

Jewellery is the simplest choice

Statement jewellery is the perfect way to get that glitzy, dripping in diamonds look. Afterall, how else can you transform a simple outfit into a red-carpet ready look? The general rule of thumb is to opt for a maximum of two pieces of blingy jewellery per outfit: however, for a simple day look one is sufficient.

Go all out

Wearing a completely embellished garment is definitely an excellent way to work the trend but balance is key. For example if you opt for a sequinned jacket or a metallic pair of trousers, you’ll need to keep the rest of your outfit simple to offset the look. This means pairing the eye-catching piece with items in neutral colours with clean lines and minimal detailing.

Consider accents instead

If adding one full-on embellished item to your look is too much, you can opt for smaller doses instead. The best way to do this is to select pieces that feature strategically placed accents of sparkle. Good options include tops and blouses that feature detailing on the buttons, collars or cuffs. You can also select a pair of blingy shoes or a sparkly handbag to nail the look.
