There are certain aspects of childhood that are harder to let go of than others. At the top of the list would be ice cream for dinner, running through sprinklers, and most definitely anything adorned in glitter. So we couldn't be more excited to announce that sparkles are back in style and you can now incorporate them into your look without feeling like you raided your childhood closet.

There are, however, certain rules and regulations—after all, the goal here is to look and feel your best. We recommend avoiding a head-to-toe glitter get-up. If you go for a dress, accent it with simple shoes that let the frock do all the talking. And if you're going with a disco ball inspired sandal or handbag, make sure to go with one or the other—definitely not both at once. 

From Fendi's extravagant sunglasses to Saint Laurent's bright blue sneakers, there is glittery greatness for everyone. Shop the 15 standouts below.
