Rock your look...add some shine!

Sequins are everywhere, I've seen them in different runway shows lately and I think this trend is staying with us for the next season as well, not only for evening wear, but also for daytime looks. Studded shoes and accessories are also hot right now. Those details can make any piece more vibrant and interesting. I think the key is to choose a sequined piece and make it the main piece in your outfit, what I mean is to choose the rest of the outfit according to that piece so then you can create harmony. As you can see in the pictures below, I focused more on separates rather than evening gowns, I love evening gowns, but this time I just wanted to see how sequined pieces work in terms of versatility. If you are not a fan of wearing sequined clothing, then accessories, jewelry, shoes or bags can make you shine as well. I mean, it all depends on your personal style.
I love the way Balmain worked the sequined and studded pieces creating harmony with the rest of the outfit. Here are some of my favorite looks. I'd love to know what you think.
Hope you like them
