This dreamy dark shade of purple was a big hit on the Spring 2015 runways. Style your lavish plum lipstick or eyeshadow with lighter shades of clothing. Pair a romantic lace white dress with tan sandal wedges — the neutrals will not overpower the rich mauve shade.

(Believe us, we’ve thought about it.) Instead, find that perfect statement piece on Poshmark at a fraction of the price.

Shiny and Slinky Dresses

Red Carpet look: From 2014 to 2015, sleek and stylish dresses have been a staple on the red carpet. Seen on stars like Angelina Jolie and Kate Hudson in 2014  and on stars like Katy Perry at this year’s Grammys, dresses embellished withbeading or a slinky material add a sense of luxury that we love.

Everyday look: Shine like a diamond! Wear an embellished dress in a shorter hemline to have the same sparkle without looking like a disco ball. Or wear a sparkly skirt with a casual top to add dimension and glam that will transform your everyday outfit. Don’t think you can wear sparkly clothes to the office? Look for pieces with an accent of metallic threads woven into the dress.
