Shine baby shine!

Sequins are something that I’ve never paid much attention to, but those little sparkly circles have been catching my eye (literally) more and more of late. When I was in Aussie, I couldn’t swing a cat without seeing someone wearing a sequinned piece of clothing and when I was hunting for images for this post, I noticed that ASOS have an entire category for sequins! I now have a new-found desire to own something sequinned – a dress, a top, shoes or even a simple accessory! I want!

This first lot are dressier and more ooh la la than the ones below, as they’re designed for fabulous occasions...dahhhliiing! The pretty black shift is from Acne and is so simple & effective, plus it’s perfect for you black lovers out there! This Helen Cherry dress is the perfect party dress for the festive season! It’s definitely eye catching and would be a LOT of fun to wear (although this model looks like she’s having a bit TOO much fun haha)! I have three words for you - Sequin. Harem. Pants. Genius! Way to cleverly & fashionably combine two of the hottest trends in one, killing two birds with one stone much? I heart.

Even though sequins seem dressy and jazzy, they can also be worn casually, as you can see from the clothes below. Look at this sweet snakey top from Sass & Bide, just a sprinkling of sequins makes this tee casual chic - perfect for a day at the beach! These DKNY sneakers are to DIE for as they pretty up street fashion, making it less grunge and scruffy. I can imagine skipping down the road in these babies, as they’d be so much fun to wear! If you’re into his & hers, then these cardigans from Stolen Girlfriends Club are for you!

Of course, we can’t forget the King of Pop himself, who wore some STUNNING gold sequinned pants while rehearsing for his 2009 concert – legend. Maybe he’s the reason that sequins are oh so hot right now? Thoughts?
