For a long time I thought sequins looked cheap and cheesy. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have looked twice at dresses with sequins, but now, I can’t decide which sequined dress I want to wear on New Years Eve. Sequins are now popping up on every mannequin at a Macy’s, Nordstrom, and even a Forever 21 near you. Now depending on the brand, style, and quality sequins can look very stylish and on trend. Brands like Akira’s Black Label, Express, Adianna Papell and Alice + Olivia are showcasing beautiful, well made designs featuring sequins. Now since no one likes cheap, crazy, half of the sequins are falling off look, I suggest really taking a good look at the quality and strength of the sequin itself on the clothing. There’s nothing worse than wearing that sequined skirt out once to the bar and the next morning your friendly cab driver is cleaning up your sequins all over his backseat. In the meantime, you’re waking up hungover, with a sparsely sequined skirt!
So whether you are wearing a hot sequined mini skirt, dress, top, or your new comfy sequined Ugg boots, you are bound to get a few double takes this holiday season.
