Glam it up this fall

Although “All that glitters is not gold”, sparkling elements illuminate those who wear them. This fall, designers have taken a shine to sequins and beads, and they appear prominently on clothing and footwear. Belk’s Vice President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction, Arlene Goldstein, coined the phrase “glitz before six” to describe the phenomenon of wearing apparel traditionally reserved for cocktail parties. Successfully pulling off this look requires style savvy and a dose of attitude. Wardrobe stylists advise pairing sequins and beads with tailored, toned down pieces. The latest look books show models wearing beaded cardigans with pencil skirts or loose shimmering tops with slim leg neutral slacks. By co-mingling fashion opposites, designers achieve an effect of unpretentious elegance that refuses to take itself too seriously.

Glitz goes hand in hand with the element of surprise, and nothing surprises more than the glittery shoe trend. Ever since Dorothy followed the yellow brick road with Toto in her ruby slippers, we’ve had a love affair with sparkling shoes. Who could forget the red Swarovski crystal stilettos worn by Marilyn Monroe in the film Gentleman Prefer Blondes? These heavenly heels are currently on exhibit at the  Ferragamo Museum in Florence in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the movie icon’s death.  Can’t afford this celestial shoe brand?  Sparkle ballet flats and the new ballet flat and loafer hybrid offer glamour at an affordable price. The Nine West Panto flat in silver and gold makes a stellar style statement for under $70.
