Adding Some New Year’s Sparkle

by Jessica Pigza

As we are nearing the end of the holiday gauntlet, I am filled with a mix of emotion. I’m sad because it always seems to go by so fast and before I know it, my kids will be back in school. Yet I am happy to know that soon, life will return to its usual amounts of fun and chaos. With that said, I plan to enjoy the last big event of 2018 and have fun ringing in 2019! I’m not sure what I’m going to be wearing yet but I know I want to sparkle! The holidays are the perfect time to step out of your comfort zone and add some shimmer and New Years is the quintessential time to do this!

Below are some fun ways to add some sparkle to your outfit this New Years, whether you’re hitting the town for a big night out or enjoying a low key night at home. Try adding some sparkle to your…


If you’re hesitant about how to add some sparkle, then your nails are the best place to start. You can make them as bright or tame as you want. Add a glitter polish as a top coat to any nail color for an instant sparkle!

If you’re willing to kick it up a notch from your nails, adding some bling to your hair is the way to go. You can keep it as simple as adding a beautiful barrette to your ponytail or even pull up one side. Adding a headband to a messy bun or top knot is also an easy way to amp up your look.

Accessories are another simple and fun way to add some sparkle to your look. There are so many fun pieces out there that the options are endless regardless of your budget or how much sparkle you want. Below are just some of the fun accessories I found.

Okay, if you’re really ready to step out of your comfort zone, below are some fun options! The sequin blazer adds an instant touch of glamour to any outfit or even that cute little black dress. Not sure about a full sequins tank top? Pair it with some jeans, heels and a black cardigan or blazer if you feel like toning it down.

Who doesn’t like a little sparkle in their footwear? Dress up a pair of jeans by adding a gorgeous heel or keep it more casual with a sequined flat. Enhance any simple dress with what I like to call, a statement shoe, and you’re ready to go!
