'Tis the Sequin!

Sequins are back with a one-track mind: fun!  If you haven't taken the tour to sparkle land, start with the holiday season.  Not sure how to pull off this look? Find your sequin-type:

Retro = sequin mini
Trendsetter = sequin leggings or blazer
Classic = sequin tank or clutch
Modern = sequin platform pumps or vest
Uncommitted = small sequin accessory

Typically for night, sequins are now showing up in the light of day. Colors are fine, but red shoes clicked three times could send you to Oz.  Sure bet neutrals always rock: black, metallic or white. Pair with unlikely separates like loose trousers, t-shirts, matte tights, or a killer pair of jeans.  Wear on a date night, to an office party, running errands or for cocktails with the girls.

There's a fine line between chic and trashy, so sparkle wisely.  And no hotpants. Ever.
