It's either sparkles or ruffles. The style these days is High Baroque Ungapatche. Ick. However, I had a great experience yesterday. You know when you have an item of clothing you really like and you can't give it up and you shove it in the back of the closet in case it ever comes back into style? I was wearing a black dress to a party last night and was about to put on my old dress coat that I hate and that is slated for replacement in the after Xmas sales. There in the back of the coat closet was a big fuzzy black angora cardigan with sparkly buttons and a fake fur collar. Put it on, it looked fabulous with my black velvet (but practical! they're Isotoner!) gloves. I think I bought it in 1998. I was definitely still dating now-ex-husband. It's back in style!
