Outshine the sun
May 16, 2014
To be fair, the sun shining in Los Angeles isn’t exactly a novelty. That said, oh boy, it has really been out to prove its moxie of late. Several days this week have hit near 100 degrees, and as the heat rises, so too does my demand for pieces with punch – less layers means every item must earn it’s place in the ensemble!
After wearing a beautiful sequined top from Blumarine to the TNT Upfronts, which I attended with my LEGENDS team in New York City this week, I’ve been reminded of how much I adore a little shimmer in the hot months. Metallics play beautifully against sunkissed skin, plus with this season’s focus on playful palettes and shiny sportswear, sequins and sparkles are more wearable than ever. No longer monogamous with black-tie affairs, you can spread the twinkle to daytime on t-shirts, or pull it on in sweatshirt form to combat the air-conditioning for a night at the multiplex.
Here are some favorites I pulled from design deity www.womensweardaily.com. Personally, I’m already mentally pairing that Wes Gordon pencil skirt with a silk shell and a glass of champagne…
