If we were to be honest, and here at Preen.ph we always are, we don’t really need an excuse to wear anything sparkly. We were one of the first to download KiraKira+ because that’s just how we want everything to look like IRL.
We’re hardly outliers however. Earlier this year, we saw how the Chanel glitter boots took over the runway. Kendall Jenner’s choice to wear Saint Laurent’s equally sparkly version to a basketball game meant that glitter is for any dress code. Perhaps it’s a natural response from the fashion industry given how the beauty world is just equally obsessed. So now that we are officially entering December, it’s time to bust out all the sparkle we can.
H&M Large Sparkly Stone Necklace
Let’s start out relatively small. You can wear this paired with a classic dress for a dinner so you won’t be accused of being without some holiday spirit. Available online.
Zara Shiny High Heel Court Shoes
Since we live in a tropical climate, we can’t exactly pull off those thigh high boots easily. Instead, we can opt for a pair of heels that provide the same effect with a casual ensemble. Available at SM Mega Fashion Hall.
Ashish Striped Sequined Silk-Georgette Mini Dress
Cocktail and dance parties are all that’s needed for you to wear this mini dress. Go all out and pair this with a bold red lip. Available via Net-A-Porter.
Saint Laurent Blogger Monogram Sequin Bag
This is for your everyday glitter needs. A good small bag to bring your essentials while shopping. The sequins also make sure you don’t misplace the bag as your day gets busy. Available via Luisaviaroma.
Miss Selfridge Silver Sequin Hanky Hem Skirt
If you can’t commit to a dress but find that smaller items don’t express how much you want to shine, this skirt might do the trick. You can keep your top and shoes neutral so this item pops. Available at Greenbelt 5.
Anouki Sparkly Silver Bra
I don’t need to justify why you need a sparkly bra. But if I really must, I’ll say it’s because they look so good with high-waisted pants and underneath a bomber jacket. Available via Moda Operandi.
Forever 21 Glittered Makeup Bag
The sparkly life is a commitment. It must be evident even in the little details in your life. Retire your other makeup bags for this one so that you can take your relationship with sparkle to that special level. Available at SM City North EDSA.
