Trendspotting: Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!

In the last blog post, we pictured an amazing beaded jacket by Parker, paired with a metallic beaded necklace by Kenneth Jay Lane.  The ensemble was shimmery and eye-catching without being over the top--perfect for cocktail parties or evenings on the town!  And sure enough, sparkle is everywhere this season, especially for tops and jackets.  Here are some pics from the runways of Paris and New York for Autumn/Winter 2010:

We love this look so much!  Of course, winter sparkle is a classic.  Keeping it simple makes them timeless--you will be able to wear them again and again!  Pair it with monochrome and neutral pieces as shown above to focus all the attention on the glitter!

We love Magaschoni's take on this fashion-must!  Below are two amazing pieces from the collection, available now at Gramercy: a beaded pullover and a sequin cardigan.  Beautiful!!

  1. Sequins, when done correctly, provide the perfect combination of glam, funk, and sophistication. These pieces are chic and totally timeless.

  2. That sequin cardigan is amazing!!!!
