The holidays are the perfect time of year to pull that sparkling dress or skirt from the back of your closet and celebrate with a bit of shine. This year, the sequined look is more popular than ever as the Spring and Summer glitter and metallic trend carried over into the Winter season. Sequins can be tough to style, but the best way to keep from looking gaudy is to look for accessories and pieces that are both simple and chic.
This gold sequined bow headband by The Shop at No 144 is a great way to add a bit of sparkle to your holiday outfit. The simple bow, matte sequins and black accents create a chic and feminine look that is perfect for a holiday cocktail party or night on the town. It’s also a great way to dress up your usual t-shirt and jeans.
This black sequin bib necklace by Shana Astrachan is a statement-making accessory that would easily compliment any holiday dress or shirt. Linked together with sterling silver findings, the black sequins create a lace-like effect that is both feminine and bold. This necklace would be eye catching at a fancy gathering, but could easily be worn with a more casual outfit on the weekend.
This animal print sequined mini skirt by Lana Stepul is not for the fashion faint of heart. Despite a bold pattern and mountain of sparkles, this skirt manages to stay in the chic category with a simple and classic design. Paired with a simple top, solid tights and flats, this skirt is meant for the dance floor, the hip bar and the A-list holiday party. In other words, it’s made to be seen.
