Sparkle is our favorite color!

We here at realia by jen can agree on one thing - it's difficult to choose a favorite color!  So, we proclaim that sparkle is our favorite color!  And we are not just talking about jewelry - we mean clothing too!

In fact, there is no time more important to embrace this...well let's just call it a life motto... than during the frigidly cold, rainy/snowy post holiday season! We have a few tips for taking your holiday sparkle and working it into your daily life!  From the office to out for the evening...sparkle truly is our favorite color and here are a few tips for making it yours as well!

First you need to get over the idea that sequins can't be worn during the day. They can!  The trick to making it work is to balance it out. 

*Pair a dressy, sparkly bottom (skirt, shorts, pants) with classics like: a crisp white shirt or a basic black blazer or a crew neck sweater (Or some combo of those three pieces)! 

*You can also dress down a sparkly top by pairing it with casual bottoms like a boyfriend jean.

*Or you can stay festive by layering a sparkly shirt underneath your favorite jacket and pairing the look with slouchy trousers and flats!

*Last - to wear the sequins to the office (Much like the look you see pictured today) - take your sparkly holiday dress and pair it with any classic combo as listed above (collared shirt, basic blazer, crew neck sweater), add a pair of black tights and black boots/pumps and voilà - your sparkly look is work-ready!
