Holiday collections always seem to include loads of spangly dresses, with the assumption that your aim is to shine like a disco ball on New Year's Eve. Too often, it's too much. There are certainly ways to be a firecracker without succumbing to head-to-toe sequins. The strategic addition of a light-catching accessory (and a glowing glass of bubbly) should provide all the sparkle you need.
