Sequins are one of those “flairs” that I fall in and out of love with constantly. Honestly, when it comes to sequins, so much can just go way wrong very easily; but then again, nothing excites a girl like a little sparkle. An easy way that I have attempted to decode sequins is by utilizing different degrees of sequins depending on the season. Living in Miami has made this sequins-per-season slightly more difficult, but, alas, it can still be done.
Technically, it is the dead of winter right now in most places, and the positive of that is that sequins can be done many ways right now. In this time of the year, I like to choose a slightly brighter palate for my sequins. With the cold weather, a scarf with sequin detailing is a great way to go. On a 1-10 scale, during this time of year, sequin level is at a 4 for me. As we move into spring, the excellent weather and colorful attire makes my sequin choices get higher and I typically then love to see them on my handbags and lightly detailed on my blouses. Springtime sequin level is at a strong 7. As the dead of summer hones in, all desire for sequins die and all I want is to be in a cold swimming pole constantly. The fussiness of sequins is the last thing on my mind. I have to say sequins are at a level 1 in summer. Fall slowly brings them back (and to a level 6), but where sequins happen to shine the brightest is, of course, at the beginning of winter, aka Christmas and NYE time, where I basically show no mercy and levels are at a strong 10.
Still being on a New Years rush, I have to say that this Parker skirt that I found is exactly the type of clothing choice perfect for this time of year. I think it looks, what is the word, hopeful.
All that glitters,
