Balance the bling

The trick with glitz is to make it look simple, wear a sequin top with a simple bottom or try an embellished neckline or sleeve, and of course accessories are always a go-to when it comes to safely rocking any new season trends. Belts, bracelets, earrings and shoes are all stepping up this spring to add some dazzle to your daywear.
