Add Shimmer and Sparkle to Your Wardrobe With Sequins

| Fashion

All that glitters is gold in our books: we have a soft spot in our hearts for all things shiny. Glitter, metallics and, most of all, sequins are our favorite way to warm up the night when the temps turn frigid. There's just something about a snowy, wintery evening that makes us want to slip into a pair of chic sequin leggings, put on our boldest red lipstick and dance the night away with our girlfriends  with a strong martini in hand, of course. Dare to rock the bold look this winter with some of our favorite sequined outfit inpiration - including our Womanista Approved picks for your most stylish holiday yet. 

Barefoot Blonde

With Leggings
It’s no secret we’d always choose leggings over real pants; couple a sequined pair with a festive holiday sweater for the perfect party attire  and to perfectly complement to your pretty tree.

Extra Petite

With Plaid
Red plaid makes us think all things warm and cozy, which is why it’s an obvious favorite during the winter. Tuck your favorite plaid button-down into a sequin pencil skirt for a comfortably cheery holiday ensemble.

sequins and sneakers

With Boyfriend Jeans and Sneakers
Who says sequins are only reserved for fancy affairs? We love the look of a shiny, long-sleeved top with loose-fitting boyfriend jeans and our favorite, lived-in white kicks.

Southern Curls and Pearls

With a Mini Skirt
Off-set the flashiness of a sequin mini skirt with an oversized, chunky sweater and of course a great pair of warming, opaque tights.

Happily Grey

A Dress and Messy Bun
Winter calls for parties, and parties call for amazing sequin dresses; we’re totally obsessed with pairing this fancy look with an unexpected low, messy bun for any holiday soiree.

Something Navy

A Blazer
A sequin blazer is basically a neutral in our book! Pair it with pretty much anything in your closet for an instantly chic update. We love it draped over jeans and a crisp, white button-down — with a pop of bright red, of course.
