It’s the post you’ve been waiting for… shine! Shine is such a fun way to add dimension. Materials that catch the light are always a great way to draw the eyes. Metallics are also considered neutrals, meaning mixing different metals is both okay and encouraged for a sense of modernity. The earrings (below) I got from Marshall’s not too long ago has gold, rose, gold, and silver. I adore these statement earrings, especially when they catch the light!
Shine doesn’t have to be super shiny or sparkly. Studding and embellishment can add a subtle element of shine. My pale pink loafers (below) have faux pearls and studding which add dimension without drawing drastic amount of attention to them. If I’m wearing a loud top or jacket, a shoe like this that adds some interest without competing is a huge plus!
But shine doesn’t have to be limited to accessories! There are metallic treatments that are put on tops and bottoms to add some sheen. The top pictured below I tried on at Marshall’s. I would’ve modeled it for you. Unfortunately, it didn’t fit properly, nor did I have pants on. (I wore a dress to the store and had no pants in the dressing room that fit. C’est la vie.) This blog does not provide that kind of show! If it had fit, I certainly would’ve snagged this top! It’s a great example of mixing shine and texture!
Thank you so so much for stopping by! I hope this examples of using shine can provide some wardrobe inspiration for you! Feel free to leave a comment or shoot me a message – I love feedback!
