Add glitter to your style
When the season of Christmas comes knocking, there are only a few ways to gear up for the festivities. That includes trimming the tree, baking a batch of cookies and doubling up on some of that holiday sparkle. That’s right! While it isn’t the latest fashion trend on the block, it’s the perfect time of the year where a gigantic dose of glitter won’t turn heads twice. Since that is exactly what the festive season is meant for, make sure you take our tips to add the glitter fashion trend into your style this season


A glitzy manicure is just what the holidays so get down to it! Start with a solid shade of nail varnish and then choose your desired method of sparkling. You can choose a standard glitter/shimmer top coat which is simple enough. You can get a french manicure and switch the shade on your tips for a glittery gold or silver. A a glitter gradient nail is also a delightful choice with the layer of glitter varies from heavy to light. They are perfect for those decked holiday parties and they even glam up a pair of jeans.



Can’t get enough of your sneakers but still want to shine bright during the season? You don’t have to choose between them because our easy DIY tutorial will show you just how. It is definitely a look for the daring that is bold yet fancy. Whether you’re in a pair of dungarees or a maxi skirt, these will have you sparkling wherever your feet take you.


Not only does a clutch have the utility factor to hold your essentials but it can up your accessory game with panache. Come festive season and it’s time to whip out the clutch, which are available at all stores and websites. Make sure you choose a petite, small size in a metallic shade of glitter that looks glamourous without being overpowering.


While our clothes were having all the fun, we couldn’t let our tresses miss out on it. The glitter hair trend originated during 2015 and spread rapidly, even spawning glitter beards for the men. While it is easy to go overboard with the glitter hair trend and copious amounts of glitter, you can settle for a more subtle take on the trend with a sprinkle of sparkle over prime parts of your hair, which is a great look for a wedding. And if you aren't feeling too adventurous, you can always go in for those hair tattoos.


Nothing can up the festive quotient quite like a glitter dress that is perfect for the Christmas holiday season. It is the perfect way of expressing how elated you are at the holidays, while looking glamorous. Go in for a deeper shade like bronze or black in order to get the complete effect of the glitter shining through. Now all you have to do is shine on at your holiday gala!




Give your pout a makeover that is fit for the festivities with a good measure of glitter. A lipstick with a shimmer finish will add a hint of shine to your look. You can go one step further with a glitter finish lip gloss that will bedazzle at the ball, taking inspiration from the whimsical lips at Lakme Fashion Week.


You are bound to be all bundled up this season so make sure you do it in style. Wrap up your dresses by layering with a sparkling blazer that adds instant decadence. It’s the perfect punch of holiday spirit to accessorize your outfit with and is great to wear for a chilly night at the movies or Christmas dinner.
