Shining Moment

Max Mara

Don't let evening monopolize all the shimmer.  These glossy looks work for night (and yes, even day).  Shine is usually a winter thing, trotted out around the holidays, then sequestered in the back of the closet for the rest of the year.  But, when it's done in Easter egg shades of lavender, teal, and peach and cut in fresh ways (like the pencil skirt dress at Max Mara) it gets glowing reviews for spring.

How to wear it....

1. Don this luminous trend with crisp white pants or a sweatshirt in the same color family.  Or select a glossy piece in a casual shape, like a cropped jacket.
2. Shine reflects light and grabs attention, so make sure what you wear heightens the part of your body you want to show off.
3. Avoid shimmery makeup on your face.  Matte skin and matte lips? Yes and Yes!
4. Sparkle can be tacky unless fabrics have a luxe look- like gilded python and gleaming lame (woven or knit fabric with thin ribbons of metallic yarn).
