This year like in years past the trend for the holidays is sparkly clothing. This can range from subtle to outrageous. An example of a subtle look is a sweater or other top with some metallic threads running through it. An outrageous look would be a top or dress covered in sequins.
Even guys can join in this look. Many stores have been selling ties with sparkly stripes in them or even ties made mostly of gold lame. The key is to remember to buy ties without seasonal designs on them. Then they can be worn for other occasions.
