Sequins and Beads

Looking for a way to incorporate some glitz into your look? Here are some subtle ways to add sequins and beads to an outfit without going overboard.

Sequins and beads are among some of the most eye-catching embellishments to have featured in an outfit. Whether they accent a design on tops, bottoms, handbags or other fashion accessories, they can effortlessly add some glamorous shimmer and shine to any look. The one trick with wearing them, however, is to choose wisely. While you may think that the more you wear the flashier you look, this is certainly true. But depending on the look you’re going for it may require some picking and choosing.

Using a lot of sequins or beads can work for or against you depending on how you wear it. Choosing an outfit heavy with these accents would work best if it is used as a sole statement piece that is then complemented with subtler accessories or clothing pieces. For instance, a dress of sequins or beads can give you that vintage flapper look if desired, but be sure to choose a dress wisely if this is the case. You don’t want to look as if you are wearing a costume, so when it comes to larger statement pieces such as dresses, be sure to choose one in a subtle color that will not be too loud or overly comical. Whites, creams and dark blues and blacks can work really well in these sorts of cases. The accents will do a lot to draw attention to the piece but the understated or neutral color will offset the design and allow the sequins and beads to speak for themselves, making them the true star of your ensemble. Another way to incorporate it largely into an outfit is by wearing a shrug, jacket, cardigan, or any similar piece that uses these features. They can be worn over plainer outfits to give them more oomph without being too over the top. You can also go the reverse route, by wearing a sequined or beaded top underneath a fitted blazer, kimono, etc. to easily jazz up your look.

Another fashion route you can choose to utilize is accessorizing. A handbag, such a clutch, would work great. Clutches are sleek and sophisticated, and despite their size they can still make the perfect statement piece. Jewelry is also a completely doable route, choose a necklace and a bracelet combo or perhaps earrings instead of the bracelet, but be sure to choose conservatively and to space out your accessories to achieve the perfect balance.

What to Wear on a First Date

First dates are all about making lasting and meaningful impressions. Impress your date and look your best while still staying true to yourself.

First dates are fun but can also be nerve wracking. One of the most stressful parts is figuring out what in the world you might want to wear. First dates are a launching pad for first impressions. Even if you have known the person for a while, the setting and atmosphere of calling it a “date” make room for getting to know one another in a totally different light than before. And while you want to make a good lasting impression, it is also important to remember to stay comfortable!

Your initial date with a person should be stress-free. It should be about comfortably getting to know one another, opening up, and learning about one another. While what you wear on your first date will depend on where your first date happens to be, make sure to be yourself! You don’t want to give off the wrong impression. But at the same time, a first date allows you to reinvent yourself a bit so don’t be afraid to have fun!

If you’re going out for a casual coffee or lunch date, then a glammed up casual outfit will work best. Since the locale is more laid back, you can wear your favorite day-to-day outfit and add some bold accessories to dress it up a little for the occasion. Feel free to dress up a casual v-neck tee with a flowy skirt and a chiffon scarf. You can also wear it with a printed or colored skinny jean, an eye-catching statement necklace and flats. This way, you’ll look great wearing something comfortable that shows off your personal style, and you’ll still look glamorous.

But what if you’re going out to a fancy dinner, or perhaps to a club or some other event? A little black dress goes a long way for just these sorts of occasions. They can be paired with a unique studded clutch or beaded coinpurse along with a full set of cocktail jewelry. You can dress up this look with your accessories and shoes, though try to pick things a little more on the comfier side because you won’t want to divert your attention from your date to your aching feet!

While you may want to pull out all the stops for a first date and use every trick in the book, the most important thing you should remember is to make sure you’re comfortable. Sure, you want to look great, and you totally can! But first dates are about getting to know one another in a more personal setting and you want to be able to devote your attention to your date, not worried that your dress will ride up or that your heels are killing you.

Prom Clutch Purses

For many if us prom is the first time we really get to dress up. Find a fun but elegant prom clutch that suits you.

It’s often that prom is the first formal event that teens attend and they have to choose between what kinds of dresses and accessories to wear. When it comes to accessorize big for formal events, the clutch is the perfect bag. It’s sleek and simple and can still be fun and complex in design. It all depends on your personal style. There are so many clutches out there and some match certain styles than others, but it’s still fun to mix and match.

A simple, sleek envelope clutch is always a great go-to bag. This simplistic style matches any dress and compliments any style. Its inherent versatility can be used beyond your formal event and would even work great on a night out. A simple neutral clutch will go with anything, but you can always go with a bold color or pattern that will bring some flare to your outfit while still remaining an accent piece. This simple envelope style can be used well beyond the prom, is appropriate for any future event, and you’ll find that because of its adaptable nature that it is well worth the investment.

A knuckle duster clutch adds a little more shine to your look and can double more as jewelry as well. The knuckle duster gets it’s name from the closure piece at the top of the bag. It can come in a variety of styles, from simple silver, to intricate swirls and designs or even more rock n roll with skulls or other etched patterns. This sort of piece shows it’s personality through this accent which can be worn over the fingers when held to imitate the effect of wearing rings. Similarly these handbags can come in neutrals as well as bold or bright colors, depending on your preference.

If you’re going for a retro look, then a coin purse clutch may be your best bet. These bags have a vintage feel to them that adds charm and glam to your outfit. Even if your dress isn’t vintage inspired or a great thrifty find, this sort of bag can still add that old school glamour to a modern dress. An embroidered or sequined clutch purse can add some sparkle and shine to an otherwise sleek and modern dress, while if worn with a similarly styled dress will still compliment in well in style.

Any of these bags are great for prom and come down to what sort of dress or overall look you have in mind. Remember, a clutch purse will come in handy for future events, both formal and more casual, so choose a bag that best suits your style so you’ll be able to use it beyond the prom.
