Seeking Sequins

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…

(Antik Batik Alep Cropped Sequined Pants available @ NET-A-PORTER.COM, $460.00)

A closet staple.  Wear it with leggings, dress pants, a skirt, boots, heels or flats.  Either way, this blouse is super versatile.

(Diane Von Furstenberg Kallina Sequined Kimono Top available @, $498.00)

Shorts aren’t strictly for summer any more!  Pair these with tights and wear them year round.

(See by Chloe Sequined Shorts available @ THEOUTNET.COM, $138.25)

The perfect party top. Animal print AND sequins? A total yes please.

(Jazzy Sequin Animal Tank available @, $22.99)

Need just a touch of sparkle?  This belt adds the perfect pizzazz to any outfit! 

(Glitzy Gold Sequin Ruffled Elastic Cinch Belt available @, $16.99)

It was really hard to include all the fabulous sequins available!  If you’re looking for a one of a kind sequined piece check out Etsy or Ebay.  They have tons!

Until next time,
