When I first saw the Prada coat below, it went to the top of my wish list. After almost two years of super causal dressing it seemed to me that it was time to shine. Stores are loaded with sparkly, shiny clothing, for day and for night. Any time of the day is time to shine. And at all price-points. These beauties are not just for New Year’s Eve. They are year round pieces. Some are gorgeous evening looks, and others will brighten up your day, and night. Why not come on a tour of some of the stores in the New York. Make 2022 a year to sparkle.
Prada was in a sparkly mode this season.Whether this classic coat, covered in sequins or a crisp white shirt dotted with small stones. The mood was upbeat.
Miuccia loved shine so much this year that even bags and shoes were sequined.
L’Agence covers a blazer is sequins, pairing it with velvet jeans. Both this and the Prada coats work day or night.
Sporty sweat-shirts get sequined as well. The top looks dressier over a black skirt, and would be more casual with jeans.
This totally casual two piece set stands out in a bright pink. That fact that it is covered in sequins adds to the charm.
Of course there are dressier pieces. The slinky sequined dress is more of a nightime piece.
The lace and sequin skirt from Rachel Comey with a dark blazer from Cinq A Sept looks sharp. The crystal fringe ties the look together.
Alice and Olivia knows how to pack a punch. The large sequin dress on the left is a big silver statement.
This look is casual, but chic. The jeweled sweater tones down the sequined skirt and tank. Each piece could work on its own too. The black shoes are a miss though.
Another mixed look that shines works Valentino and Carolina Herrera together in a very modern way.
And even less expensive clothing sparkles with sequins for a Night Out look.
Another mix is Michael Kors and Burberry. The chain mail slinky dress is relaxed with the black jacket.
This shaped sequin dress is brought to life with the black satin large ruched sleeves.
This dress is another interesting mix of sequins and lace. Rachel Comey designed this as well.
A sequin and chiffon gown is definately a more formal look. The soft appliques of chiffon give the dress a weightless look.
Ruched and draped, this gold metallic dress is certainly a beautiful statement,
A one shouldered metallic brocade dress makes a shiny statement too.
It is also time to shine in this slinky dress in chiffon covered with a beaded spiders web.
Delicate hand beaded embroidery from Carolina Herrera also shines in a pale peach.
Valentino shines in a pink satin dress with sequins bow appliques.
For a completely casual look, take a pair of silver lurex short shorts, and pair them with a beaded white chiffon low cut shirt. You will stand out.
This look will perk up your day. The black and white tweed coat looks like it sparkles when it is paired with a silver lame blouse. Casual with attitude.
When a silver parka is worn with a black and white printed blouse, the casual shine factor works for daytime dressing.
Dries Van Noten pours on the shine in this poison green satin pea coat. Day or night this could be a go to coat.
Another beautiful look from Dries Van Noten is this delicately embroidered sparkling bird over a pale pink sequined dress with a feathered hem. The pink in the embroidery reflects the pink beading.
And Miuccia Prada shines again with this irridescent sheer sparkling shirt in a pale lavender. Delicate and sporty, a new way to dress for evening.
