Don’t let the sun steal your shine this summer – sequins are hot in 2014, and there’s a whole heap of ways to wear them. Just one sequinned item can change your entire look, making it easy for you to adapt your daytime outfit to something more suited to a night out on the town. So get some glitz in your wardrobe with this fun and sexy trend, and make it work for you.
Stand out on your night out with a sequin mini skirt for a glamorous look with a retro twist. The great thing about sequins is that they catch the light as you move, so whether you want to wear your legs bare or prefer to contrast the bright skirt against tights, you’re always going to have an eye-catching look. You can go all out and opt for a sequinned dress, but be sure to choose a short hemline or you’ll risk your outfit looking dated. If you’d rather rock the look on your top half try a sequin top – a slinky material is best so the sequins follow your movements. For a more subtle look, a t-shirt or top with a sequin appliqué or design will work just as well. Or cover up by opting for a glitzy blazer or shrug over a plain ensemble – too many sequins will look too fussy and might clash, so it’s wise to pick just one sequinned item in your outfit so that it really stands out.
Of course, you might prefer your accessories to sparkle rather than your clothes. A sequinned clutch or handbag is a great way to incorporate some glamour into your look if you’re not keen on rocking a sparkly dress or skirt, and will draw just as much attention as a sequinned piece of clothing. Or channel your inner Dorothy and invest in some sequinned stilettos; this is a guaranteed winner for a night out in a club or bar, and like the skirt it will look great teamed with bare legs or tights. Glittery heels can even dress up skinny jeans and instantly transform your outfit.
