It's not "shine bright like cubic zirconia," after all.
We'll get to Chic-ifying the Glitter Body Stocking in a bit, but first, a word of advice on future paillette-smothered purchases: Look for everyday shapes given the extra-special treatment. That means T-shirts or pajama bottoms or (in our dreams) this Altuzarra jacket, which handles sequins almost as if they were an extra-textured fabric.
Fashion's been loosening up for a while now, so look for pieces cut 1) with longer hemlines and 2) farther away from the body, like this bronze Thakoon dress. Flow prevents the shininess from looking too clubby, plus leaves room for #putaturtleneckunderit.
When styling sparkle, think opposites: quicksilver leather with a nubby knit or reflective sequins with matte wool, as seen in this Dior ensemble.
Fur is fancy. Sparkly stuff (when done right) is fancy. Therefore, fur and sparkly stuff together—here in a devastatingly chic Cinq à Sept look—must be *extra* fancy.
Save your pin-thin stilettos for jolie laide *clothes.* We want to downplay the nightlife-iness here, so keep your street shoes on.
