Glitzy items with sparkle and shine make us think of formal wear and dressing up. While that’s true, the ongoing fashion movement towards wearing “daytime sparkle” and casual items with shiny textures and surfaces is growing stronger. It’s fashion’s way of adapting dressy to our age of casualization. For this reason describing an item as casually glitzy makes sense. In fact, I’d go as far as to say that the juxtaposition of dressy and casual elements in one outfit is a style that is defining our fashion era.
These casual pieces for Team Magpie are shiny, juxtaposing a formal wear concept with a very relaxed vibe.
- Generation Love Yoko Combo Jacket: A mixed media piece that needs nothing more than a layering top, jeans and boots. Oversized with just the right amount of tailoring.
- Juicy Couture Metallic Pullover Hoodie: Wear it under a blazer, over a leather bottom or checked skinnies. A glitzy nod to the sporty trend.
- Three Dots Sequin Top: An upscale sweatshirt with many possibilities. Wear it with bootcut trousers, a full skirt, a pencil skirt or jeans.
- Monserat De Lucca Large Botevara Pouch: A rough textured clutch with casual tassel in platinum or rose gold. Perfect with a pair of jeans.
I like shiny things because they look dressy, so I am all for wearing casual glitz. How about you?
