Let’s be honest with ourselves, once in a while — as women, we love to give ourselves some bling. Glitter in the world of fashion is often associated with glam. You’re probably wondering if you can pull it off for regular affairs. With confidence, nothing is impossible. We’ve curated a list of glitter-packed fabrics that will add the much-needed glam quotient our lives deserve right now.
Starting with the first thing that pops to our head when we hear the word bling, sequinned fabrics are glitzy and elegant. Subtle sequin work in embroidered kurtas is one way to wear sequins. An all-sequined jacket in shades of gold or silver is the perfect way to bring on the bling. Subtle sequined dresses or tops are perfect for dinner dates. Trade your heavy accessories for sequins and you won’t be disappointed.
When a shimmery layer of metallic colours is knitted into fabric, you get lurex. Lurex is a subtle hint of glitter for light-hearted occasions. Lurex striped dresses or tops, pants and wrap dresses are the perfect way to make a suave statement. Corporate occasions also call for lurex pantsuits – glamorous and businesses-like. Can it get any more lethal than that?
One of the daintiest yet powerful fabrics that Indian women can be proud of adorning has to be organza. Sheer floral-patterned organza saris interwoven with zari work are the perfect outfit to rock the wedding season. Organza dresses are another way to be glam effortlessly. A plain kurta set can be elevated with an organza dupatta.
Embellished denim jackets and jeans are a hot trend this season. Patterned embellishments in florals, geometric designs and mandala are storytellers that make for a great style statement. You can also make contact with your inner creative self by trying out some DIY embellishments to your outfits.
If you’re looking for some glitter but not necessarily in the form of outfits, you can always opt for glittery accessories, heels and bags. Shades of glitter in gold, silver, copper and rust are great choices. Glittery dangling earrings or neckpieces are ideal for this kind of look too.
