Add sparkle to your winter wardrobe with clothes from Kyle By Alene Too!
While we are all loving the crisp fall weather (and the lush autumn outfits that go along with it), the holidays are right around the corner. The holidays are a perfect excuse to break out those sequined dresses and sparkly accessories we’ve been wanting to wear all year. The joyful season calls for a little something special. It’s a reason to indulge in those cork-popping moments while donning a fabulous shiny cocktail dress. While the holiday time brings rich fabrics like velvet, satin and brocades; adding sparkle to an outfit should be a go-to move for a fabulous holiday soirée. Whether it’s a skirt entirely made of sequins or some jeweled embellishments on a jacket, there are a multitude of ways to unlock your inner sparkle queen and shine your way through any party. Lucky for us (and you), the ultra-chic boutique, Kyle by Alene Too was more than gracious to let The Divine Addiction scour their racks and put together some dazzling holiday outfits with tons of glitz and sparkle.
GIVE ME MORE GLITZ
For the girl who isn’t afraid of over-the-top sparkle, a sequined embellished mini-dress is the perfect holiday party option.
This iridescent mini dress has a hippie-chic vibe with its zigzag print at the top. Not only does this dress demand the attention of every room, but it’s insanely comfortable with a loose elastic waist. Again, keep the accessories minimal as we did here with a black clutch and black booties.
It’s important to realize that you don’t have to stick to a standard black or silver dress. Here we have a stunning navy sequined crew neck dress with an edgy visible zipper up the back. While it’s essential to keep jewelry and accessories to a minimum, we are loving navy/gold combinations. We paired this navy dress with gold jewelry and an INSANE gold clutch with skull embellishments. Because the jewelry is matte, the gold doesn’t compete with the dress.
ONE GLITTER-DRENCHED PIECE
A great way to give your outfit a wow factor is to add one sparkle-filled piece and keep the rest of the outfit simple and tailored.
This blouse is completely embellished with sequins, jewels and beads. The stunning cream color with nude lining says holiday fun while allowing you to play with color in the rest of your outfit. Paired with tailored black tuxedo pants, the outfit is classic, and the orange clutch is unexpected, giving the look just enough personality.
Try your hand at a sequined skirt like we did here with this floral printed mini. Not only is the print beautifully done, but the muted darker colors are perfect for the winter season. Paired with a simple white blouse, the skirt does all the talking.
A shimmery jacket can be thrown over any outfit to add pizazz. Whether it’s all over sequined or just embellished, you can’t go wrong with a festive throw-on!
For those of you who aren’t normally into sparkle, try a sequined jacket that has muted sequins. With this jacket, the shine is a little less glitzy and a little more edge. Paired with black pants and a black top, the jacket still makes a statement. And with the mainly neutral look, feel free to add some color like we did here with the red heels.
This coat screams Holiday Coco Chanel style. If you don’t prefer all over sparkle, pieces with glitzy embellishments are great options. This jacket could be thrown over a fabulous dress or even a pair of jeans. Here we dressed it down with brown leather pants.
We love the elegant options of a long dress or an embellished maxi skirt. You’ll end up looking like a statuesque holiday goddess!
This long elegant black dress is luxurious and sleek. The shine on the dress is understated and flawless. Paired with art deco earrings and a statement fringed handbag, the look is classic and edgy at the same time.
Tailored maxi skirts exude elegance and are somewhat unexpected. This one here has subtle sequined embellishments and is perfectly tailored. For a fun holiday feel, we paired it with a red blouse. Don’t be afraid to be over the top with jewels. It is the holiday season after all!
THE ULTIMATE PARTY DRESS
We HAD to talk about this dress, as it is one of the most stunning pieces we’ve ever seen. It is decadent, chic, classic, edgy, and fashion-forward all in one. This is a dress that cannot be topped. The beading is exquisite with Swarovski crystals, and the fit is perfectly executed. While most of us may not be able to afford a dress on this level, use this as your holiday inspiration.
