It's that time of the year again when we're about to transition from breezy clothes to rain-proof clothing as the drizzles alternate with the heat. And while we can't fully enjoy the fall-winter vibes that fill in the fashion store racks around this half of the calendar, we can definitely take note of some the trends that are popping up in the collections and incorporate them into our daily ensembles. 

What should you give a try? Go luxe with glitter. Whether you're in for a subtle but nice pop of shine or you want to go all out with the glitz, we've got just the style tips and inspirations for you. 

Upgrade your casual mix

Want to go glam but still channel ease and comfort? We say mix both with a nice tee and sparkly trousers. Channel this look from Michael Kors Fall/Autumn 2018 collection by going for complementary but muted tones to make the contrast of textures and styles work. 

When in doubt, go for the classic silver

Glitter comes in many colours and sizes, but if you're not sure how big and bold you can go, a classic and non-intimidating silver piece, like these Maison Repetto Michael in Spumante loafers, is a great way to start. It's like a modern take on Cinderella's classic glass slippers. 

It's all in the details

Another way to wear glitter besides the usual star-like specks on a fabric is by going for more intricate and outlined details. However, if they're too chunky, they can come across as tacky and intimidating, especially for everyday wear. So our top tip is to complement the glittered designs with colours and prints that would balance out the boldness and heaviness of its texture, just like this turquoise jacket from Michael Kors 2019 Resort collection. 

Go for a statement piece

Not sure how glitter works for your usual style? Go for a versatile yet statement-making piece that you can pair up with almost any look. Just like this Sweetie Coarse Acrylic Glitter Clutch from Jimmy Choo.  Since it's an accessory, you can match it up with many ensembles whether for day or night.

Practise layering

One of the perks of the rainy season for us who are used to sunshine almost all-year-round is that we can play with many pieces and prints more without feeling uncomfortable or impractical. So take this as a perfect opportunity to level up your street style. Go for a glam and glittery solid-coloured dress paired with some trusty rain-shields in bold prints and maybe even classic booties like this look from Valentino x Moncler's F/W 2018 Collection
