It’s almost that time of year… our calendars will soon be booked full with parties, family dinners, work events, drinks with the girls and catching up with old friends! Today I wanted to share one of my biggest fashion tips for the festive season with you. So listen up ladies, here it is: when you need to look glam, but don’t have the time – just add sequins!
Yes, it really is that simple. I believe every woman needs at least one sequin piece in her closet – I promise it will be your style savior! I’ve lost count of the times I have thrown my sequin blazer on over a simple black dress, or worn it with skinny jeans, heels and a tee.
I also believe in day time sequins. Think cute shoes or a dazzling clutch.
Trust me – for those last minute events, times when you can’t think of an outfit, or days when you just don’t want to spend ages getting ready… a beautiful sequin piece is essential.
It’s also a brilliant way to use the wardrobe you already have – you don’t need to buy a new outfit for every occasion. I’m sure we all have a simple dress in our closet, give it a totally new look by adding a gorgeous sequin blazer. Then play it glamorously cool at another event by wearing this same sequin blazer with jeans and a crisp white tee. Voila! Two totally different, but equally fabulous looks.
I’d love to know, are you a sequin lover too? Here are my top sequin picks for the perfect holiday party outfit…
1. Ugg Boots
2. Dress (just add black stockings for cool weather)
3. Rainbow Box Clutch
4. Raglan Top
5. Balconette Bra (style under a sheer blouse)
