BlingItOn

That bling is a favourite method of mine, is a commonly known fact. But sequins, one of the latest trends doing the rounds is something that caught my eye after a while. The last time I wore something OhSoBlingy was on my 17th birthday (2008, incase you’re calculating), and ever since I don’t quite remember donning the avatar; and come to think of it, I don’t quite know why.

So here are four different looks for you, wrapped in bling, so you can turn your shine on this season!

Bling avatar: F(p)unky

Black heavy shoulder padded long sequined top from God Made Me Funky is the drama effect of this look, enhanced by the pink stockings, high heels, black sunnies and hot pink clutch - all from my own wardrobe

Like you can see, I’ve paired up a heavy shoulder padded long top (or short dress?) with my dash of punk by adding the bubble gum pink stockings. If you want to play safe and are not into going all Gaga over the place, or are headed to wear it at a more formal occasion, then a pair of black stockings (transparent or jet black), or maybe even smart denims would look great. I wore my matt black sunnies and also carried a funky hot pink clutch, and chose to add some height with a pair of my black stilettos to enhance the look.

The off white (with an added tinge of gold) sequined top is extremely cute, especially with that balloon cut and Peter Pan neckline. Wearing it to a brunch, or perhaps any day event at all with denims or a short skirt would look great. White and its’ shades are the ‘day colours’, they say? So well, let’s stick to it (for once?). The beige suede heels made me fall in love with the colour and shape and height and feel, all of it basically, at the drop of a hat! I simply couldn’t get over that one thin pipe in of gold around the base of the shoe. (Yeah, I’m in love.) And of course, I had to add my pink/white sling clutch to complete the look.

Bling avatar: Retro Diva

A short sequined number with Batman sleeves and brown/gold high-waist belt, both from Preciosa gave me the retro look I was looking for. Further added by the leopard print satchel and dull gold heels - my own.

This look is inspired by the ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ generation, really (with the only thing missing is the bling forehead-band). Here, I’ve worn a short sequined number with Batman sleeves, and to add that touch of drama that I was looking for, I added up the high-waist belt. A little bit of leopard print with the satchel to add the contemporary fad and the dull gold heels to complete the look.

Something like this would be pretty apt if you’re out for the night. The look can also be reused for a formal party with the colleagues, and if you’re a bit apprehensive about ‘ImTooBlingyForThisWorkParty’, then you can always tone it down by changing the belt or even the footwear. One can never really go wrong with the LBD (remember our ‘The LBD‘ post?).

If you’re confident enough to carry off chugs of bling with solid hues, this one’s for you, you confident fashionista! Carrying off different shades in itself is something people find risky, but if you’re willing to add up that bling and take that risk, the effort in itself has a thumbs up from our end!

Here, I teamed up my blue jeggings with a long bling ganji with tons of gold. I added blue/beige heels for enhancing my height and that dash of extra colour (thats me, yes) by throwing in the snake skin shades-of-blue-green clutch. Overall, this looks like a blend of different palettes (iLove). And like I said, if you can carry off this mix and match confidently, then your browny points are about to be home delivered.
