Trend Alert: Sequins

1 Comment 02 November 2009

Sequins never totally go out of style, and why should they? A simple sequined piece can rock anything from a pair of ancient faded denim jeans to a formal skirt. These days, the best way to wear a sequins is to not do them head to toe. Otherwise you’ll look like you stepped right out of a 1980s prime time soap opera. It’s better to pair a sequined top with other pieces that are plain, or at least plain-ish. This includes sequined shoes, which can look amazing with a cute top and jeans.

Let’s start with these
Sequin Skirt Shorts from Topshop. If you have great legs, then this is a terrific look for you this fall. Topshop suggests wearing them with biker boots. They need to be paired with a simple top so as not to have your top half competing with your bottom half for attention. These are made from 97% Viscose, 3% Elastane. $70.00 from Topshop.
