December always feels like one big blur of family get-togethers and holiday parties — there were just so many. So, it's understandable why most of us spent the first two weeks of January recuperating from one-too-many late nights, lots of Champagne, and more cookies than we can count. But, now that our bodies and minds have had a chance to adjust, we're ready to let our social-butterfly selves loose again — no more hibernating in our apartments with a box of cereal and Downton Abbey marathons. Hey, the truth is scary.
So, for our next fashionable night out, a shimmery, metallic skirt or sequined blouse feels just as fresh in the post-holiday weeks — as long as you opt for lighter pastels and airier textiles. Those rich, saturated hues and heavy fabrics are officially finito 'til next year. So, we rounded up 15 buys perfect for wearing now and then later in your spring wardrobe. After all, who doesn't love a little sparkle?
