Trend: Wearing Sequins Year Round.

Trend: Wearing Sequins Year Round.

The holidays may be over, but sequins should be here to stay year round. I used to have only one sequined piece that I'd pull out of the dredges of my wardrobe strictly for New Year's Eve. However, I'm now known for wearing sequins and leopard print tennis shoes to work! Sequins make me feel shiny and bright on those days where I don't even want to get out of bed. They're what I turn to when I need a little more "oomph". Catching a bit of sparkle in my closet has a way of making my morning that much brighter. So, why was I wearing them only once a year? Your guess is as good as mine!

There's something to be said for not saving the pieces that make you feel confident for just one day a year. Why wait for a special occasion to wear that sequined skirt or that embellished velour jumpsuit? Why hold off on what makes you feel your absolute best? Every day should be an occasion to dress up and sequins are no exception. The days are long, but the years are short and every morning is an opportunity to wear what makes you happy. Go ahead and wear the sequins. You won't regret it.
