Once fall rolls around and those bright summer clothes get tucked into the back of your closet, keep that sparkle in your wardrobe with embellished pieces. Embellishment on clothes and accessories are the perfect way to add that feeling of glitz and glamor to an otherwise ordinary outfit. This trend is as simple as accessorizing with a timepiece or clutch and can be as dramatic as a wearing a dress riddled with sparkles. The great thing about this statement-making trend is that it is very versatile and easy to accomplish. You can use embellished pieces for a casual daytime look but they can also work just as well for a night out. However, be careful not to go overboard with the embellishment. A few pieces add to an outfit, but any more than that and you’ll be channeling your inner Katy Perry.
