Sublime Sequins for Fall

In past seasons, sequins has always been a fashion faux pas--not quite acceptable to wear unless you happen to be a Broadway superstar or are certifiably insane. Now, in moderation, sequins are fabulously gorgeous!

The key is to limit yourself to one glitzy item. Keep the rest of your outfit toned down and let your shimmer shine! A great way to do this is by wearing a cute sequined top (like this one from Express for $29.50) with a simple pair of jeans. Personally, I'd wear the outfit with flats as to avoid the overly done up prostitute look. Accessory-wise, throw on a pair of simple stud earrings. The top is basically all the jewelry you'll need.

Oh, and a note to the fashion inept out there: even though sequins are in this season, please do not pull out any old sequined blazers with shoulder pads that you might have kickin' around from the 80s. They weren't cool then and they aren't cool now.
