How to Wear Sequins this Holiday Season

Just in time for the holiday season, sequins continue to be one of the hottest fashion trends.  How to wear it can be one of the tricky parts though.  It's a look that can be glamorous but can also come across as tacky with a severe throwback to the disco era.  

Sequined sleevless tops look great
with simple jewelry. 
How do you wear it?  Well it's simple.  If you don't want to go overboard simply choose one item that is sequined.  The easiest is selecting a sequined top or blazer and pairing it with a simple skirt or skinny trousers. If you don't feel comfortable in skinny trousers then try a pair of straight leg or bootleg.  But a nice pencil skirt is an item that easily goes from the office to a night-time affair.

     Sequined pants are another trend for the season that has gained a lot of attention.  But this look can really bring attention to the legs, hips and thighs. So if you don't feel confident in your figure, it's best to avoid wearing them.  
  
  Celebrities have been seen wearing sequined pants as an option for evening-wear.  They make them look so easy to wear and in fact they are.  Just wear them with loose-fitting button down shirts, fitted tops or a sleeveless silky tank.  Whatever you decide keep it simple on top since the bottoms will draw so much attention.
