In Summary

Sparkle. The glitter trend lit up 2017 and is set to rule 2018, writes Hassan Ssentongo.

Everything you have heard about glitter is false. It is no longer the preserve of children. It can be worn even away from weddings. Glitter is one of the hottest trends, after being on the list of ugly fashion for a long time. Sparkles, sequins and glitter are in now, so feel free to indulge.

Glitzy makeup
Bring a little drama to your makeup by incorporating a shimmering touch to it. This is usually a highlight in a metallic tone such as gold or silver brushed up around the cheekbones.

Like a million bucks
With their rich history of use for clothing design even in ancient civilisations such as Egypt, sequins spell luxury. A lot of work goes into weaving intricate designs by hand, on handbags, clutches and clothes.
Glitter is the perfect way to upgrade your look from casual to festive in a heartbeat.

Glitter heels
If you are afraid of looking like you are trying to be 16 again, do not wear that glitter dress. In fact, stay away from shimmery makeup and those ‘ugly glitter boots’. Instead, opt for a pair of sparkling sequined heels. This is the subtle way of doing glitter.
Otherwise, colourful tunics, mini dresses, skirts and pants are also available. . They are available in all colours from bold red to black. Enjoy a glittery festive season!
