We all want to look stylish. But the last thing we want to look is like last year’s dance recital costume. And that’s how you just might look when you try to pull of this year’s hottest trend: sequins. But have no fear. These style tips will keep you looking fabulous.

Sequins played a big role in the 2017 fashion awards, but most of us aren’t gearing up for any award ceremonies. But that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate some sparkly sequins into your day or evening look.

When you wear sequins tops or bottoms, you don’t have to wear jewelry. So, save your glittery necklaces and earrings for another night. You’re already sparkling!

Balance the top and bottom

Your sequins dress is already a statement piece. So, try to maintain a nice balance between the top and the bottom. For example, for shorter dresses, have a higher neckline.

With sequins, there’s a lot going on. So, let sequins steal the show and let everything else be understated. Black tights, tops or pants will keep it from looking like you’re drowning in your outfit.

Wear a blazer

A blazer is a great choice if you want to snazz up for your professional outfit without looking like you’re going to the club. Keep it black, fitted and classic. It’s balances on the sequins’ bling.

Try a sequins clutch

You might love the sequins trend, but might not feel too comfortable wearing such an attention-grabbing top (or bottom). If that’s the case, why not wear a sparkling clutch? It adds instant glam to your simpler evening outfit.

How do you plan to add sparkly sequins into your wardrobe this year?

In our first post, “Are you eating the right foods to support your cycle?”, we discussed your body’s dietary needs during the first two phases of your menstrual cycle. Before we move on to the last two phases, let’s briefly recap the four stages:

  • The follicular phase: Here, your ovarian follicles start to mature your eggs, one of which will eventually make its way into the uterus during ovulation.
  • Ovulation: The shortest phase in your cycle, ovulation lasts from 12 to 24 hours. In ovulation, one egg makes it’s way from the ovarian follicle into your uterus.
