How To Add Some Sparkle To Your Christmas Outfit

Adding some sparkle to your Christmas outfit is fun and easy. Getting glitz and glam is as easy as putting one some shiny shoes or some spectacular eyeshadow when you’re getting ready for a Christmas party or the day itself.

Glittery Shoes

One way to add some glitter to your Christmas outfit is by wearing some sparkly shoes. These are quite easy to come by online and in store during the holiday season. They are a fun yet subtle way of getting some sparkle on you without having to wear a sequinned dress all day or night. And if you want to get your dancing shoes on these black sequin rolly flats easily fit into your handbag, ready for comfort and snazziness when the heels get too much.

DIY Glitter Shoes

If you can’t find the right shoes for you, you can DIY your perfect pair. All you need is some glitter, a pair of old shoes, some glue and some newspaper. You can get glitter and glue from any craft supply shop.

To start with you need to make sure the shoes are clean. You can just wipe them down to make sure there’s no dirt or dust on them. Before you start with the glue and glitter you have to put down some newspaper to protect the surface you are working on.

Then you paint on a layer of glue on one section of the shoe. You coat that area in glitter before you move onto the next section. You repeat this until you have covered the shoe.

When the glue dries you then you can tip the excess glitter off and see if there are any patches that need another application.

If there is, then you just need to dab a bit of glue on the patch and add some glitter over all the glue.

And there you have it. Some gorgeous glitter shoes.

Sparkle Tights

An unlikely contestant but sparkly tights are a fantastic way to add some fun into your Christmas outfit. Like the shoes, they are less obvious but still a cute option. We love them because they add some sparkle to your legs during Christmas as well as being warm and comfortable to wear.

If glittery clothes aren’t your style you can add some festive sparkle to your fingers. Your fingernails to be exact. You can get glitter nail polish or a fun Christmas design with a touch of glitter to the design.

When it comes to makeup, you can never go wrong with a little bit of sparkle. Especially at Christmas. So why not use a touch of glitter on your eyes to finish your Christmas look with that touch of sparkle. The great thing with using a glitter eyeshadow is that you can match it to your outfit perfectly too.

Shimmery eyeshadow works just as well as glitter eyeshadow if you’re worried about glitter getting into your eye. You will still get that subtle glimmer with your outfit.

When it comes to accessorising it’s a great way to add a little shine to your outfit in a way that will complement the main outfit. You can get a sequin clutch bag to add some shimmer without it having to be on your body.

Jewellery is a great way to add some shimmer to your outfit without you having to wear glitter.

If you want to be really sparkly on Christmas then we recommend a sequin dress or shirt but this has been some suggestions for adding a bit of sparkle to your Christmas outfit.
