Trend to Try: Intricate Embellishments

This week's trend for the Glam & U by Kotex® Trends to Try Photo Contest is my favorite so far: Intricate Embellishments. It's so easy to dress up even the simplest grey sweatshirt with the right amount of intricate embellishments (aka - a jeweled neckline.) I live in cozy sweatshirts and sweaters during the cold months so it makes me incredibly happy to be able to throw on my favorite pieces and add a fun statement necklace to create a great night look. That's what's so fun about fashion trends; you get to experiment with them in whatever way works best for you. And thanks to Glam & U by Kotex® you also get a chance to win a few great prizes on top of playing dress up. The Glam & U by Kotex® Trends to Try Photo Contest consists of giving you all a chance to try out a new trend each week - and this week the trend is intricate embellishments. So, do you want to play dress up and add a few intricate embellishments of your own? If so, then you're in luck! Upload a photo of how you play around with intricate embellishments to your wardrobe and, at the end of the week, the Glam editorial team will pick the best photo. Each entrant will also receive a free sample of U by Kotex® products while each weekly winner will win a $100 Amex gift card and the chance to win the big prize - a fashionable trip to NYC (which will include a nice little shopping spree, hair and makeup application, a photo shoot, and an editorial feature on Glam.com!) Oh, and the winner will also get to bring a guest (or bestie!) So, yes, what are you waiting for?! Upload your photo and enter on Glam's Facebook page! The contest will run between 11/25 - 12/29 so stay tuned because this Friday I will announce the final trend for next week. Good luck, loves!
