Sequins were all the rage back in the 80’s and boy have they made a huge comeback! Let’s just make sure you don’t leave the house looking like you just stepped out of the 80’s.

Sequins can be overwhelming and as much as I love them, there can be too much of a good thing. I’m going to show you some ways to incorporate sequins into your holiday party wardrobe without going overboard.

“It’s about embellishment, and it’s a way for women to find something new and different that they don’t already have in their wardrobes,” says Gregg Andrews, national fashion director for Nordstrom. “The great thing about all the embellishment is that it’s almost like built-in jewelry. The outfit comes with its own accessories.”

Sequin Embellishments
This is probably one of my favorite holiday party looks. The dress from Arden B is a gorgeous Sapphire jewel tone and just includes a flirty hint of sequins.

Icing on the Cake – Tips to BE Irresistible!
♥ One at a time. Sequins are a bold fashion statement. Stick with one sequined piece. If it’s a dress, don’t wear a bunch of sequin accessories or shoes.
♥ The dress has super glam factor. Don’t go crazy with big hair and wild makeup. Unless you want to look like a little girl from Toddlers and Tiaras.
♥ Create a contrast. If wearing a head to toe sequin dress isn’t your thing, try this look.
A solid top and a sequined pencil skirt. Irresistible!
I wish you the best, most sparkly holiday season! Have a great time at all those parties and get togethers. Hopefully, you’ve learned a little from Glamify the Holidays or at least had fun reading!
