If you’re wondering what to wear to a party and you’re sick of your same old outfits, have you ever considered adding sequins and metallics to your look?

They’re neutral and pair well with pretty much everything. Plus the shiny finish adds extra texture which is huge when you want to mix things up, but don’t like combining prints or patterns.

The main reason I love wearing sequins and metallics is to feel like a superstar. The high-shine brings instant glam to my outfit along with an attitude of Hey! Look at me—I’ve got something incredible going on!

If you’re not used to drawing attention to yourself, showing up in a Beyoncé-style bodysuit may be a bit much. 

I do, however, encourage you to try it just once. Not necessarily a bodysuit, but a head to toe shining look. 

It’s powerful!

Imagine having the rock star confidence that you not only belong in every situation, you’re in demand! People want to be around you because you’re exciting.

You bring joy into the world. 

And if this confidence doesn’t light up every room you enter, your bright and shiny outfit will.

    just finished webinar. thank you. I am always learning something and today I learned that since I felt great on Sunday for church I should wear it for a pre Christmas get together tonight. Uh, no! Respectful nice works for church and not for a fun party. I am thinking about how I want to be at a fun evening. So I learned that a style word doesn’t fit every occasion even if it is a good word just like my go to graphic tee doesn’t really work for church! bonus!!!

  2. Exactly, Ellen! I hope you had a great time at your party and felt fabulous in your outfit.
