Black Sequin Dress

Thanksgiving is done and like a true holiday fanatic I’m ready to herald in the season with some festive frocks. A few years ago I would have scoffed at the idea of wearing sequins, but the beauty of fashion is that as you evolve, so does your style. Apparently I’ve evolved into Sasha Fierce – addicted to all things glam.

If you’re looking for a way to add a little sparkle to your holiday wardrobe, sequins is a surefire way to do so - literally. For the daring, I’ve fallen in love with this ¾ sleeve backless number by ArynK  – perfect for a no fuss yet attention getting way to ring in the New Year. For more formal events, slipping a sequin trench over a simple LBD (little black dress) is uber chic. I know we have become pashmina city, trust me I totally approve – but I am ready to usher in some gorgeous light weight cropped jackets and trenches for the cooler nights this holiday season. The Iisli trench pictured is a definite splurge, but a stunning  accompaniment to any evening dress.


Sequins are not only nocturnal. A little sequin camisole peeking from under a business suit is also cute and an easy way to go from day to night when paired with a pencil skirt and tailored blazer. When wearing sequin garments, especially for daytime, keep all other elements of the look very simple.

If you’re a little wary to take the plunge, dabble with accessories. A shimmery strip of fabric used as a sash is adorable to highlight the waist in a dress or over-sized tank. Equally attention getting is an allover sequin beret or clutch. I stumbled across this sequin Phillip Lim bib that can literally be paired with anything! Wear it with a LBD and pumps, a simple white t-shirt and jeans or peeking out from under a blazer - the possibilities are endless.

Have fun with fashion. Sequins celebrate femininity and can be flirty and girly or chic and sophisticated. Take a risk this holiday season and get your shine on!
