Nine West Does "Day Shine"

Good news to those who love all things that sparkle! Gone are the days when glitter and sequins were confined to strictly eveningwear. Nine West recently came out with a glitzy crop of perfect “day shine” pieces that, when worn sparingly, really adds a fun to your daytime look.

Remember: the trick to pulling off the day shine look is by keeping it to only one sparkly piece at a time. So if you opt for a glittery bag, keep the rest of your accessories fairly subdued. Sparkle on!

Check out a few of our faves from Nine West:

The tribal trend has been around for a while, and it’s steadily gaining popularity as a bold yet wearable option. We love incorporating them into tank tops, swimwear, dresses and even accessories! Whether you opt for a subtle tribal detail, like a tribal-inspired sandal, or go all-out with a head-to-toe tribal ensemble, there’s room for tribal in everyone’s summer wardrobe!

For the guys, we’ve been seeing a resurgence in the whole desert travelerlook—think khakis, lightweight button-up shirts, desert boots, neutral leather sandals and cargo bottoms. We’ve styled them four different ways to show the versatility of this summer look.
