The Season of Sparkle: All About Sequins

Winter blues can have you feeling drab and washed out, but just because the temperature is going down doesn’t mean you can’t still be absolutely fabulous. This winter, give your wardrobe an extra special flare with the season’s hottest and glitziest trend: sequins!

Being a girl is especially fun because we get to be creative, quirky, and cute! Take advantage of this year’s dazzling fashions and add some sparkle and sequins to your clothes. You’ll brighten up your wardrobe as well as your spirits. Sequins are the perfect attitude-enhancing accessory for all the great holiday parties you’ll be attending this winter.

Because the holidays are all about glittering lights and having fun, you really cannot have too many sequins. Strut your stuff in a sparkling skirt or cocktail dress. You’ll find a wide variety of sequined styles available, from strappy mini dresses to glamorous knee-length sheaths. Heat things up with a pair of warm tights and sky high heels, grab your favorite wristlet purse and you’re ready to go!

There are plenty of other exciting ways to wear the dazzle and shine of sequins this season. Everyone looks amazing in a great blazer, and now even the blazer is getting the holiday treatment. Designers are draping and adorning their buttoned jackets with sparkly sequins and beads. We love that you can wear them with items already in your closet, so you can feel comfortable, confident, and add an excellent touch of flash and holiday cheer. 

Try a black sequined blazer over your favorite blouse in wine red or cream color. Add a pair of chic slacks, an eye-catching cocktail ring, and chunky-heeled shoes for a fashionable winter outfit that is fun, funky, and totally fabulous. 

The sequin trend is also making it big with accessories. Flashy headbands, wrist cuffs, and belts are all the rage. Even shoes are getting bedazzled this holiday season, which means you can embrace the fashion from head to toe, as much or as little as you want.

For a more understated approach, try finding accessories that fit your style and personality. Dress up your classic little black dress with a sequin-adorned brooch or an adorable hair bow. Your holidays will be glamorous and bright in no time at all!
