Stylist, edi­tor and au­thor of Lori Gold­stein: Style Is In­stinct (Harper­collins; R1 642), Lori Gold­stein is one of a grow­ing num­ber of fash­ion­able women who are break­ing the old rules in the shini­est way pos­si­ble. “Any­thing that sparkles in­vokes a sense of joy,” she ex­plains, “and wear­ing some­thing shiny, es­pe­cially dur­ing the day, al­ways makes me feel more con­fi­dent.” Fol­low in her gleam­ing foot­steps with this pre­cious ad­vice and get set to shine.

Ven­ture into this trend with a shirt, skirt or jacket that’s par­tially shiny. I have a mil­i­tary jacket with se­quinned sleeves that’s per­fect. For day, I wouldn’t wear more than two (maybe two and a half) sparkly items – I’d do a skirt with a se­quinned panel and a bling neck­lace, but not much more than that.

Glit­ter and se­quins are in­her­ently girlie, so I like to pair them with some­thing mas­cu­line. A glit­tery T-shirt looks amaz­ing with a heavy tweed jacket or tweed trousers. I also love the ef­fect of a bro­cade jacket with gold thread worn with a crisp white shirt.

For day, stick to a monochro­matic look, like navy trousers paired with a navy se­quinned top. It’s work ap­pro­pri­ate, but with a sub­tle, shim­mery kick.

Big se­quins de­mand a lot of at­ten­tion. You know it’s too much if you can hear your clothes clang to­gether!
