Glitzy Style Inspiration for Your Holiday Engagement Party and Beyond

Posted by Azure on December 22nd, 2010
We’ve all got one thing in common this time of year… lots of holiday parties to attend, cocktail dresses to wear, and merrymaking to be done!

And if you choose one of these festive frocks from Rent the Runway, your engagement ring won’t be the only thing sparkling when you walk into the room! RTR also rents fabulous Judith Leiber clutches and designer accessories, and they are all bling-tastic!

Glitter, sparkle and shine are big this time of year but it’s easy to go overboard, and end up looking like a disco ball. But with a little fashion savvy and restraint, you’ll be the star of the show! To ensure you don't become a glitter gone wrong fashion don't this season, check out the 3 quick tips below! 1. No Matchy Matchy- if you choose a metallic gold cocktail frock, don't think that the rest of your look (eye shadow, jewelry, shoes, clutch) should be gilded, too. You'll end up looking like the Oscar statue... Instead, pair a gold dress with earthy warm tones like brown, olive, and even bronze. 2. Use Sparkle Sparingly- if your dress is covered in sequins, use restraint with your makeup. A high-sparkle eye shadow is not your best bet. Instead, try a shadow with a touch of sheen. The takeaway here- stick to one sparkly feature at a time. 3. Glitz, Glam, and a LBD- with a little black dress, you can add lots of sparkle without going overboard. Some of my fave ways to add shimmer? Glittery eye liner, a bejeweled headband, or a high drama nail polish! Check out Sephora.com for glitzy makeup must-haves!

So ladies, I hope that with the tips above, you'll twinkle brighter than ever this holiday season!
