Learn How To Incorporate Vintage Sparkling Rhinestones Into Your Wardrobe
Everywhere we look, we see the twinkle of rhinestones on everything. Whether these jewels shine on purses, tops, or shoes, it is noticeable that the bling has returned. But how do you go about putting a little shimmer into your everyday wardrobe? And when it comes to rhinestones, how much is too much? These helpful hints will help get you started on adding a little more shine to your attire.
There are lots of ways to add rhinestones to your style. It just depends on what type of look you are trying to achieve. If you want to keep the look classy and very simple, it is best to always be reminded of the classic motto, “less is more”. To achieve this look effectively, start off with some accessories to add to your outfit, such as jewelry, purses or shoes.
HOW TO WEAR RHINESTONES: Brilliant Accessories
Wear a statement piece such as a bib necklace with lace and rhinestones and a simple black dress or for something more subtle, carry a sequin and rhinestone encrusted clutch to your next social gathering. Still feeling like this is just too much sparkle for you to handle? Why not try just a dazzling cocktail ring or earrings instead? This way you are able to achieve the look but in a relatively simplistic demeanor.
If accessories really aren’t your thing, you can always opt for wearing embroidered tops that have rhinestones along the collar for some fun fashion. While these can really be dressed up with a skirt or a blazer, you can also keep them simple by sticking with jeans and flats.
Speaking of shoes, the easiest way to add rhinestones to your closet is to simply wear a pair of shoes with a little sparkle on them. Whether you wear rhinestone flats, heels or hey, even a pair of some really jazzy boots, you can really work in rhinestones with your shoes. Cuffs are also really hip this season, so instead of wearing one that is plain, sport one or two that have some really radiant gems on them!
Getting your wardrobe to sparkle is easy and can be done instantly when you add just one rhinestone accessory. But if you are looking to really brighten up your dull winter wardrobe, adding more than one rhinestone piece is ideal! Have fun with your look and remember with rhinestones, you can always add more pieces to create a sparkling ensemble.
