Seqiuns, sequins everywhere you look...on shirts, mini skirts, dresses, blazers...but how the heck do you pull this look off and can you still after the holidays (YES!).
Here are a few tips:
*Keep it Simple (just like leather leggings): With a sequin dress or mini try a bare leg or black tights with a tough platform sandal or black peep toe shoe. With a sequined top pair it with jeans and a blazer and flats. Keep all other accessories to a bare minimum: no loud jewelry. In fact, when in doubt, skip the jewelry all together. Sequins stand on their own. That goes for makeup as well. Natural is better here; no bright lips or crazy eye color.
*Avoid Mixing Colors: Stick with one color or it will look too busy.
*Create Contrast: Like Sarah Jessica Parker in the sequined jacket and distressed jeans pairs a little glam with a caual modern look. Or pair a white buttoned down blouse with a sequined skirt.
The Sequin Dress: We personally find that a sequin dress is impractical in our lives. Of course it can be a fun pick for a party dress. Keep the dress short; long dresses look a little prom-ish (ok-a lot prom-ish). We actually are kind of loving Heidi Klum's take on the sequin dress. She brings a casual feel to it with the blazer and skinny jean leggings. We could totally wear this going out.
Sequin Jacket: This can be so simple to wear. We love them just tossed on over a basic tshirt and some distressed jeans. Add a pair of ballet flats and you are golden.
