Glitz Up Your Wardrobe!

Party season is here and what better way to shine and celebrate this festive time than to wear some sequins. You may have noticed designers and boutiques have added sequins to their collections. Sequins have been added to all items of clothing. For example in shorts, jackets, dresses, hats, shoes and even full length pants! When Topshop opened its doors this week in Melbourne, the first trend to sell out was all things with sequins. It’s exciting to see the young and old embracing this 80′s comeback trend.
Like any trend there are  some rules to follow.  To avoid looking like a disco ball combine a sequin statement piece with something plain in shades of black, grey or white. This way sequins  can be worn for both day and night occasions.
I have selected some expensive and inexpensive sequin items for your reference.  I hope they inspire you to go a little glitzy this holiday season.
Below I went all out to help celebrate this new trend. I discovered this vintage 1980′s sequinned dress with feather sleeves in my mum’s wardrobe. I quickly lifted the hemline while trying to create a gathered finish. I added a vintage belt with my favourite Harajuku Lovers shoes and voila, I created this fun look!
 All Glitzed Up Look 2:
Below I’ve styled a vintage top with a sequins jacket. I bought the jacket from Target 2 years ago. I’ve styled the very glitzy top half with black shorts. My clogs and clutch are both from Nine West. I used a cute flower ring as an accessory for my hair.
