Intricate Embellishments - Trends to Try

When I think of holiday style, sparkles, bows and metallic shimmer immediately pop into my head. Don't get me wrong, I have worn my fair share of red, green and plaid over the last few weeks, but the look below really radiated my festive spirit.
Merona Cardigan from Target // Banana Republic Dress (great options here and here)// Zara Heels (another pair I love) // DSW Clutch (option on sale! & wristlet version) // Merona Bow Belt from Target // Forever 21 Bracelet (similar) // Stella & Dot Bracelet (fun option) // Forever 21 Black Rhinestone Earrings (similar pair)

SHOP THE LOOK



Taking a few classic pieces from our wardrobes and adding a few girly touches is an affordable way to style a head turning holiday look. I used a white dress as my starting point and layered it with an embellished cardigan sweater, classic bracelets, a dainty bow belt, silver clutch and of course my go-to heels of the season. It's pretty glorious that a sprinkle of sparkle here and a dash of darling there can really complete an entire look.

Embellished pieces are probably one of my favorite trends over the last few seasons. I am on board with it all; from cardigans, to sweatshirts, to tees and even dresses and skirts. It's a fun way to spice up any style for any occasion.

We are into the home stretch for the Kotex® "Try It For Yourself" style contest where one lucky lady is going to win a trip for two to new York City. Be sure to snap a photo wearing your intricate embellishments for a chance to be entered. The prize package also includes a shopping spree, hair, make up and an editorial on Glam.com.
