Tonight marks a significant event in the skies: the first total solar eclipse in the U.S. since 1918. It’s expected to affect everywhere across the country from Oregon to South Carolina – with some states experiencing total darkness for over two full minutes. Partial eclipses will hit hundreds of other territories, but it’s the action in America that is set to be especially special. 

While you may be elbow-deep in craft glue in an attempt to make the most fabulous eclipse glasses and outshine your fellow spectators, there’s another thing you ought to consider, too: what to wear.

It’s going to be a complete blackout in the sky, meaning there’ll be no stars or moon twinkling when you crane your head to see the phenomenon, so we suggest you take it upon yourself to bring the sparkle.

We’re talking sequin tees and glitter dresses, metallic booties and flashy sneakers. Rock a Kendall-approved chainmail mini dress with your most dazzling shoes, or keep it casual with a golden top and your favorite pair of kick flare pants. The best thing about getting your glitz on for the eclipse tonight is that all of your space-age, iridescent fabrics and light-stealing sequins will translate perfectly to the dance floor for any end-of-summer party. 

Get your pinhole glasses at the ready and check out our selection of show-stealing pieces to light up your back yard during tonight’s solar eclipse:
