Sequins and sparkles often illicit fear in some, and we’ll admit, it can be hard finding that perfect glitter piece. But if today’s current trends are any indication, glitter, sequins, and sparkle have transitioned from being cheesy to incredibly chic.
In fact, glitter and sequins have become a mainstay in versatile fashion. Blogs, magazines, and street style stars are showing how today’s fashion is all about some serious sparkle. We’ve taken notice and found an abundance of chic slip-on shoes, casual tank dresses, and sexy skirts that range from showing a little glitter to sequins galore.
And as for how picking the right pieces, remember gold and silver sequins each offer a different feel. Gold is a bit warmer, a tad more glam, and even slightly more approachable, while silver gives off a cooler but just as chic look.
Depending on the texture, size, and sparkle factor, sequins can be used in a big or small way. Subtle sparkle offers a little pizazz into every day work wear, or while larger sequins can serve as the perfect back drop to a fabulous night on the town, without fear of looking like a disco ball.
