Even if you’re not someone who’s naturally drawn to shimmer, it’s hard to not get dazzled by the dozens of shimmery separates and accessories this season. From sparkly-detailed blouses and cardigans to full-on sequined sheaths, adding a little embellishment to your party ensemble is the easiest way to upgrade your look from casual night out to special occasion appropriate! If you prefer to keep the main focus of your outfit a bit more on the subdued side, you can still add a healthy dose of eye-catching glitz by letting your accessories do the talking! Ditch the satin wristlet or mini bag and opt for a sequin clutch that makes a fun statement despite its compact size! Mix it up with a bit of contrast with this Marc Jacobs Alexis clutch from Net-a-Porter — sleek leather and shiny sequins make for a dramatic look that can be paired with nearly any party outfit. For a bit of added texture, reversible sequins are an even trendier take on the sparkly look, or if you prefer a print that stands out a bit more, this French Connection Carnival clutch has plenty of personality. Of course, if these options just aren’t “special” enough for your occasion, get in the mood to celebrate with this colorful bow clutch by Betsey Johnson!
