While I admit to being a summer girl at heart, there are certain thrills that come with the change to the cooler months of fall and winter. Among them are the rich textures and sparkling detailing that adorn our clothes as the days get shorter and the weather colder. Although sequins can be worn throughout the year (and should!), seeing more of this sparkling fabric in stores reminds me that the festive season is around the corner.
However, please…PLEASE do not reserve sequins for your holiday parties! It’s truly amazing how a white t-shirt can transform most any formal piece in your wardrobe. Here my “Feelin’ Fine” tee adds some wit to an otherwise polished outfit. A slouchy, collegiate cardigan also lends to a more casual vibe. A knotted white tee paired with some sneakers could also be cool and even more casual.
And, a sequin pencil skirt can be such a versatile statement piece in your wardrobe. Beautiful for nights out when worn with a silk cami or a tuxedo jacket and heels (even heeled booties). Easy for the office with a sweater and kitten heels. Or perfect for an afternoon brunch date with the trusty white tee and flats. Go ahead, step outside of your comfort zone…everyone is guaranteed to notice!
