Oscar Inspired Style
Adding a bit of glitz to your everyday style doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming. Today I’ll share with you some easy style tips you can use to incorporate glam into your everyday.
Take a look at the glamorous outfits that come down the red carpet come Oscar season for inspiration. The Oscars are everything glam, no-hold-back looks that are the epitome of beauty. If we look to these perfectly put-together outfits and take inspiration from them, we can incorporate little touches that make everyday outfits a bit more special.
Let’s take a minute to review what makes a fabulous Oscar look:
- Sparkle in jewelry, dress, shoes and/or accessories
- Long gown
- Smokey or subtle makeup, depending on the look
- Heels that support the entire outfit
Reviewing this list it would be a little difficult to pull off a long gown in our day to day but something that we could incorporate day to day could be sparkle and glitzy heels.
Sparkle comes in many forms; it can be jewelry, makeup, fabric or embellished pieces. Some are more convenient than others. I personally don’t wear sparkly makeup very often so I would rather go with heels or jewelry.
You need to consider your lifestyle and what is going to be easiest for you to incorporate into your everyday life.
I’m going to share with you three ways that I add glam to my everyday outfits. You can use all three or use the one that you like best.
3 Easy Ways to Add Glam
1. Sparkly pumps (or flats)
These could be metallic, glitter, jacquard or even sequined. The idea is to find a pair of pumps or flats that elevate an outfit. Shoes that add an extra bit of oomph to your look.
I mention pumps because they are the most appropriate for everyday; from work to play. Pumps are perfect for the office or for a date with your significant other.
In this look I’m wearing a fabulous pair of silver metallic pumps. They look great with jeans or slacks and work for evening or day. This is the style I’m referring to when it comes to sparkly pumps.
2. Metallic Fabrics
Wear head-to-toe metallic or just add a little glimmer with a shirt or handbag. Your outfit will surely be a standout if you add anything metallic.
It shouldn’t take long for you to find a metallic item you love. There’s a metallic version of everything from coats to shoes.
Unless it’s a special occasion where lots of sparkle is encouraged I would advise to wear one metallic piece at a time during the day. Pair your metallic with a neutral color palette. Silver metallic pairs well with blacks, grays, and white. Gold and copper pair well with creams, pinks, and grays.
In this outfit I paired the silver metallic pumps with an hourglass metallic dress for a fun evening outfit. Made it my own by adding a denim jacket.
3. Embellished Pieces
It doesn’t have to be the holidays for you to wear embellished pieces for added sparkle. As long as you take into consideration your activities for the day and pair them with neutrals then embellished pieces work year round.
Embellished pieces add instant glamour, whether it’s a sequined top, studded jacket, crystal-embellished blouse, jeweled sweater or heels.
These super glitzy heels are a little more flashy so I would wear these embellished heels for an evening out with friends, date night with my boo or to Vegas.
If you’re as much as a #shoelover as I am I would suggest you head over to #DSW and take a look at their embellished and sparkly heels. The two heels featured in today’s post are from DSW, Charles by Charles David Pact Reptile Pump and Circus by Sam Edelman Lola Sandal.
I hope this post has inspired you to incorporate a bit of glam into your everyday looks!
