This time of year is all about the sparkle, which we can totally apply to ourselves as well by investing in some plus size glittery clothes. After all, if it not now, then when? I'm a strong believer in rocking sequins and sparkle all year round, but I completely understand those among us who don't love such look-at-me designs. That being said, I believe everyone should have at least one glittery number in their wardrobe to pull out over the holiday season. Even if it's something as simple as a sparkly sweater, you just can't help but get into the holiday spirit when you're covered in glitter .
Almost half of my wardrobe contains some kind of sparkle. The style just makes me feel good. I strongly believe that wearing fabrics and designs that you like to look at is so much better for the soul than something plain or monochromatic. It'll make you feel a little bit special, which everyone deserves.
And when else in the year is this large a range of glittery fashion readily available? Yep: Stocking up on our glittery garments now is a must. Maybe you should be buying for other people right now, but why not treat yourself to a fabulous sparkly dress too?
