I know I’m not the only one that needs a touch of lightness in their life these days. It was a hard week for half of America, and I am just beginning to be able to wrap my head around it. Reading, talking to friends, and listening to a lot of music has helped. What also helped was perusing street style pics, and catching all the bright light that silver reflects.
Naomie Harris at the Hollywood Film Awards, where she took home the Hollywood Breakout Actress award, looked positively aglow in her Gucci silver lame pantsuit. What also caught my eye were all the silver skirts (both sequin and lame) worn during the day with a casual bent to them. Whether paired with Converse suede sneakers, oxfords, mid-sized heels or to the knee boots, all looked smashing! And, who doesn’t love a silver leather bomber jacket with red and black knit trim detailing. When paired with red it read like a breath of fresh air!

Just because the Holidays are over doesn’t mean your coveted sequined fashion pieces need to be stored away. In fact, now is the best time to invest in sequined tops and dresses as they are most likely on sale.
For a chic way to wear sequins everyday, try pairing a sequined blouse with cuffed denim pants, like Level 99, and casual leather loafers – perfect for work or a lunch date. In general, dressing down “dressier” items is actually much easier than trying to dress-up casual pieces-which often requires lots of accessorizing. Clothing with lots of bling factor often times looks best plain and simple.
Another great outfit is cleverly achieved by layering a sequined dress with a soft cotton or cashmere sweater, like Minnie Rose’s V- Neck Sweater. This outfit is perfect for an evening dinner date, and is always effortlessly chic when paired with suede or soft leather shoes. The secret to successfully pulling this look off is by keeping the colors monochromatic.
Here are some great pieces to achieve the dressed down sequins look:
