Not Your Mother’s Sequins

When most people think of sequins, images of pre-teen dance costumes or gaudy 80s formal wear come to mind. But nowadays, sequins are the perfect way to stand out, from unexpected streetwear to glamorous party outfits. Inspired by recent runway looks and street style, here is how to make sequins feel new again.

Specifically in Gucci‘s Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear collection, sequins made an elegant yet quirky statement. Wear them from head to toe at your next party (see this dress from ASOS) instead of your usual all-black ensemble. Don’t fret if these bright outfits above seem out of your comfort zone; when worn in darker colors, sequins can still be edgy. And yet another bonus of wearing sequins: you don’t have to worry about accessories because your outfit will be the center of attention.

Incorporate them into your look through separates; sequined tops are easier to pull off, but a skirt or pants can be equally as effective. Paired with relaxed denim, a silver top has a fresh feel. When in doubt, make your outfit instantly casual with sneakers. No matter what the occasion, don’t be afraid to sparkle.
