I recently was thumbing through a copy of Lucky magazine, and came across an article on how metallics and sequins are trending for Spring & Summer 2014. I happened to have a sequined skirt in my closet from Forever 21, and I thought it would be fun to try styling it for “day wear,” as the article suggested!
The key to this trend is balance; the skirt is so dressy, I toned down its fanciness by pairing it with a sheer & feminine “Portofino” blouse from Express – one of my staple pieces – and comfortable-yet-colorful vintage Nine West boots I found at Renewed Expressions Consignment Boutique for only $12.
Around town, I got a lot of compliments on this outfit, and felt chic and admittedly a little adventurous! What do you think – would you wear sequins for day? How would you style it?
Yes, they’re TIGHTS! Aren’t these fun? People stop me all the time and ask what my leg tattoos say. Lol! Forever 21
