Fall Fashion: Add Sparkle & Shine to Your Holiday Outfit

**This is a sponsored post for Collective Bias® Below I show you how to get the look for less from Sears. #cbias**

Around this time of year many of us get the opportunity to go to Holiday parties and family get-togethers. What do you do to help stand out in the crowd?

Fall Fashion: Add Sparkle & Shine to Your Holiday Outfit

Many of you know that sparkle is my favorite color but this season I’m all about metallics. Metal gives us a nice shine to our outfits without being over the top glitz and glam. I’m leaning more toward this look because I am loving an edgier style this fall and winter. With metallic accents you can really take your outfit to the next level without breaking the bank!

This past weekend I was really wanting to spruce up my wardrobe with the metallic trend. The Hubs and I went to our favorite mall and headed straight for Sears. I wasn’t looking for anything too specific but I knew I needed another scarf to fuel my addiction! They had so many different kinds and I fell in love with this one right away.

I love this scarf so much because of three reasons. The pattern is a variety of animal prints, which is so in right now. The colors in the ombre effect are classic. Silver with grey fading into black; very chic! Then of course the metallic effect of the thread winding it’s way through the fabric gives it that extra pop! I didn’t even think it was necessary to wear a necklace with the scarf because it had so much detail itself.

Next I had to find a top to go with my new gorgeous scarf I picked out. Funny how I find articles of clothing to match my accessories huh? LOL, never the less, I found a couple options I really liked but I was especially drawn to this mustard yellow top from Metaphor.

The detailing here is so fun! I love how these little silver studs are all over the front of the top and the bottom of the three-quarter length sleeves. I think my favorite aspect is the zipper detail in the back, exposed zippers and the mustard color are so on trend!

The cut of the top is so flattering as well. It’s not super tight but definitely gives that nice hour-glass shape that we all love! The material is very soft and flowy and machine washable! Of course, when purchasing my two new wardrobe additions I used my ShopYourWay rewards program and used a $5 coupon I had! I got both pieces for under $40, hard to believe I know!

The rest of my outfit? From Sears, of course!

The bottoms are Bongo brand, super soft and a little stretchy to help at those Holiday meals… ahem. And, aren’t these booties just so super cute?!

The hardware on these ties in with my overall metallic theme, score!

These pieces are from a few seasons back and unfortunately aren’t available any longer but are such good quality they’ve lasted me this long already!

So what do you think about my head-to-toe look from Sears? Could you rock this outfit?

With the Sears ShopYourWay Rewards program you can make catalogs of looks you are loving for future reference. It’s kind of like a mini Pinterest for Shopping! You can check out my metallics catalog here!

Fun fact: Sears was my first job! I worked in the juniors department and my Mother still works there. I normally go to Sears first when going clothes shopping because I know the brand and I know it’s affordable. Half of my closet is from Sears… literally!

So why don’t you head on out to Sears for yourself and get trendy with metallics? I would love to see what outfits you come up with so send them over!

    I so love your look! The scarf especially! I don’t normally gravitate to animal prints but I just love the colors, ombre effect, and (of course) the metallic thread! 😀 The top is super fun too and looks great on you! Oh and I’m so sad the booties aren’t still available, I LOVE them too (true story) #client

    Great look! I’m not crazy about animal prints because I feel like the print overwhelms an outfit and makes the individual look older. However, I love how you paired it with that yellow, it doesn’t compete with the print. Your top makes the print really standout without overtaking the whole outfit. Love it!
