The Light Fantastic!

The Paralympic Games in Sochi are winding down, and the Olympics are but a memory of all who went for the gold (or silver or bronze).

Well, hang onto your sequins. Because the urge to shine, as in adorning ourselves with shiny metallic fabrics or baubles, bangles and beads, is on the rise.

Heading into a new season, we’re flirting with all-out glitz and glitter. That which was once reserved for Liberace, the disco floor or tap dancing recitals is now fodder for high fashion.

At Victoria’s Secret, sequins are splashed liberally over and t-shits and yoga pants. There were plenty of sequins and other shiny embellishments in the collections of Carolina Herrera and Marc Jacobs, not to mention Jason Wu, Diane von Furstenberg, Lanvin . . . the list goes on.

You can expect to see lots of high-shine fabrics for spring-summer 2014, and not just for evening. Long black sequin gowns, glittery boots, shiny pencil skirts, embellished cardigans—it seems almost anything goes.

But why the sudden urge to glitter and so brightly? Astrology provides clues, being the study of cycles, with the movement of the planets denoting changes that are happening back on terra firma. This cosmic art–science has been around for around 4,000 years. During which a lot of trends have gone supernova, only to dim at varying speeds.

When tracking fashion trends, we first turn the astrolabe towards Neptune. And it’s Neptune’s current sojourn in the mystical sign of Pisces, associated with creating allure and glamour. It’s also the sign of having a dream, about venturing beyond limitations into other realities. You can blame it for the plethora of films and TV shows that take us into fairy tale and fantasy worlds.

Add to this Jupiter, until July, in the nostalgia-ridden sign of Cancer. This placement is largely to blame for the how-retro-can-you-go craze. And the sequin? It may be the perfect reflection of the Cancer–Pisces interplay.

All Moon Children love things spherical and reminiscent of the night-sky orb. Pisces revels in light effects and also playful paradox. So putting something over-the-top glitz and borderline trashy against a prim tulle or knit is an ideal way to appease the style gods—and stay fresh and modern now.

Plus, it’s been a long, tough winter weather-wise for most of us. Why not add the all-out optimism of some playful sparkle to your tired wardrobe? Go on; try to have the tail-end of-winter blues when you’re wearing some fabulous sequins. I dare you.
