Sequins are a huge trend this season, however unlike the paillette-covered fashions of yore, the modern way to wear them is almost casually - as if you tossed them on without much thought. Be sure to check out the new Sequinned Issue of London's fashion156.com where they're showcasing them with an urban, avant-garde edge. Here, the eyecatching Miu Miu bomber would continue to work overtime after the holidays with everything from shredded skinnies to a pencil skirt, while the slouchy black Proenza karate pant & matching loose tee embody just the right spirit of devil-may-care style insoucience. Head-to-toe shine works in the Proenza outfit because it's all-black & slouchy, but the trick is to remember that a few sequins go a loooong way.
If the Pucci shift or gold sequin pencil skirt calls your name, keep the rest of your outfit non-shiny & neutral...under threat of huge fashion penalties (looking like an overpriced Fashion Victim). Alternatively, an easy way to sass up a LBD straight from office to festivities is with glittery accessories - like a shiny shoe & bag.
Here is where to get these fabulous pieces:
