Glitter isn’t just for the girly-girls anymore and the trend is definitely not limited to prom dresses. We’ve seen glitter and sequins in different fashion forms on many of our favorite celebs like Kate Hudson, Blake Lively, Miley Cyrus, and Kate Moss. There are now a million ways to incorporate a little (or a lot of) glitter into your world. From casual clothing, formal dresses, sneakers and heels, to beauty products, glamming up your look with glitter has never been easier.
Despite what you’d think, glitter and sequins are actually super versatile. The best part about the trend is that you can dress it up or dress it down and you can choose pieces with a little glitter or a lot of glitter depending on your comfort level (and the occasion). I love styling glitter in an unexpected way, last week I wore a sequin adorned jersey. It was the perfect combination of masculine and feminine and I received so many compliments on the look. Another prized possession of mine is my black sequin sweatpants- they’re comfy on the inside and bold on the outside. I’m also a huge fan of glitter mini-dresses and skirts styled with band tee’s.
Glitter Boobs (& Body)
Glitter boobs, also known as disco t!ts are the latest trend is the fashion and beauty industry. While the look was developed for music festivals and isn’t necessarily wearable for everyday activities, there is the body glitter alternative that’s been around forever! My favorite way to wear glitter on my body is with the Loving Tan Bronze Shimmer Luminous Cream; I love this one for everyday wear because it bronzes my skin while adding the perfect amount of subtle golden glitter.
Think of accessorizing with glitter items as an intro course in college, it’s only the beginning! You may be more comfortable accessorizing with glitter and sequins to start, but if you’re anything like me, you’ll become addicted! Pick up a glitter belt, clutch, phone case, and jewelry and start incorporating them into your everyday looks.
Glitter hair is another trend that stemmed from the festival scene that we just can’t get enough of. You can even tie this trend in to bridal and prom looks beautifully! My favorite way to rock glitter hair is to style it into a center or side part and cover the roots in glitter. The best part about glitter roots is that you can extend the life of your dye-job before you have to get your roots touched up.
Pat McGrath recently took the glitter makeup trend to the next level by introducing her Glitter Lipkits, which she has since expanded into a full glitter makeup collection! Celebs like Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Naomi Campbell, and Chrissy Teigen have all been spotted in her glitter makeup looks. If glitter lips aren’t your thing, opt for subtle shimmer eyeshadow or a glitter highlight instead.
There’s no place like home, and there’s nothing quite like a glitter shoe. (See what I did there?) Right now I’m obsessing over glitter booties as well as glitter heels for more formal events. Glitter sneakers are another cool way to contrast opposite trends- sporty and girly at the same time.
The last item we’re lusting after on our glitter list is glitter swimsuits. Sequin swimwear isn’t just for bikini competitor’s anymore- they actually reflect so beautifully in the sun, no one can resist them! I’m still in love with the Siren Song set in green ombre by Beach Bunny!
