|Metallics: Metallic shoes, handbags or a metallic leather jacket is another subtle way to get the shiny look without overdoing it. This sporty copper leather jacket is understated and chic. (Saks)|
|All out Sequins: A caution- Sequins , done wrong, can easily look cheap and tacky. If you want to do all out sequences, such as a sequined jacket we suggest you look for a well constructed, good quality jacket ,like this one. (A loose fitting sequined jacket on a soft round 40+ body can make you look like you are wearing a big glittery blanket). Black, dark or neutral colored sequins are always classier than bright ones like red or electric blue, which tend to look more costume-like. (Saks)|
