how to wear glitter in the daytime

I've been thinking about the fact glitter just isnt for evening for a while now and then I came across this Monki Jumper via ASOS and knew it'd be the perfect daytime glitter top. While incredibly sparkly and bordering on OTT this jumper could just as easily be worn during the day as it would be in the evening. Sparkles are totally daytime appropriate am I right? Plus if you cant wear daytime glitter in the festive period when can you?

Pairing sparkly pieces with winter wardrobe basics such a this gilet tones down the glitter and makes it look perfect for a glitzy look. I kept my bottom half basic with just a pair of trusty boots and some jodphur style trousers. When styling glitter in the day make sure you keep things neutral or even monochrome to really bring out the sparkle without making yourself look crazy over dressed!

  16. That jumper is gorgeous! I think glitter pieces where it's not too in your face and more in the stitching like your jumper are really easy to wear in the day time!
