WHY WE LOVE IT
Marked more by resplendence than flash (sequins play only a minor role), these pieces make over-the-top brilliance come alive. It's an elegant, intentionally baroque look. HOW TO WEAR IT
An imposing choice for evening rather than a sexy one, sparkle shines best in tailored shapes. Offset it with sleek hair and minimal jewelry. Note: If you're wary of the dry clean bills, encrusted accessories also provide that glint of dazzle.
