For most of the fashion world, sequins are old news. Covering shirts, skirts and dresses, these shiny little decorations and their bigger cousins paillettes add a bit of pizazz to any outfit. Good news for us, they make a come-back every holiday season, just in time for all of those holiday parties!
Highlight with Sparkle
Pick a part, any part… whatever you like most about your body, make sure to draw attention to it with sequins. Love your legs and fabulous derriere? Try a sequin mini skirt. Great shoulders? Try a sequin tank top. Or just have a vivacious, show-stopping personality? Go all out with a sequin jacket or wiggle dress.
Let the Sequins Shine
While fur, leopard print, lace and sequins might all be on trend right now, don’t wear them together. As with any other trend, this should be a no-brainer. Keep the rest of your outfit simple and let the sequins do the talking.
The obvious time to pull out those flashy bits are New Year’s and Christmas soirees, but don’t let your sequins languish in the back of your closet the other 360 days of the year. They can look just as fabulous for a day out shopping as in your history class.
Worried about making a commitment? Or just not much of a sequins person?
You’re in good company. My closet’s off limits for bold colors and shiny things, but I consider my make-up drawer fair game.
And considering a really great eyeshadow or nail polish will only cost you $15 on the outside, you aren’t making much of a commitment if you just want to dabble.
