TIME TO SPARKLE
Nothing says holidays like some sparkle. That’s why sequins are women’s best friend during this festive season. You can wear a sequin item or clothing, such as a top or blazer, or steal the show with a dress.
Shop this look: We love this Pim + Larkin sequin dress, available on Piperlime.com for $98.
Tip: Keep your makeup soft and natural-looking so that I does not compete with your dress. Focus on your lips. Add a touch of glamour with a matte red lipstick. Our favorite is the MAC lipstick in Ruby Woo.

Back then, a women’s suit was a chic statement of the 60's feminist revolution.Today, it continues to represent self-confidence, sophistication and glamour. So, make a statement this holiday season by wearing a suit. You can choose one with print or simply go for black.
