I guess you could say my love of sequins started long ago. I could probably pinpoint it to age 5 or 6 when I began taking dance classes and have a variety of costumes covered in sequins. I still remember my favorite piece – it was a red sequined headband worn proudly like I was starring in Flash Dance or another classic dance movie.
Sequined garments were big back then and were worn in every day life – not just as part of a dance costume for a recital. These days, sequined garments aren’t always as easy to find but they are making a strong come back and whether you buy new or vintage a strong sequined piece makes the perfect staple for your closet.
Here are some of my favorites:
Perfect paired with a cropped sweater or tank creating an effortless but dressy look…
