Sequin Tops

If you’ve opened any fashion magazine this year you can’t miss noticing one of this seasons latest fashion trends – sequins.  Sequins are the big accent to lots of tops, dresses, handbags, shoes, skirts and even pants.   It used to be that sequins were only reserved for really special occasions or evening dresses, but not anymore.  Sequins are popping up literally everywhere in fashion these days and I must admit, we are actually big fans of sequins too.  You’ll see sequins all over dresses on the red carpet and award shows and while there is such a thing as too much sequins by and large most fashionable pieces use sequins to add the perfect amount of sparkle to casual tops and dresses.

Consider the Erin Sequin Long Sleeve Wrap Top by Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  This is a gorgeous top with a sophisticated and elegant sequin pattern on your classic black deep v neck top.  The sequins are all over so this top is probably a little too dressy to wear to the office or out running errands, but looks awesome if you are trying to attract a little attention on a night out on the town or at a holiday party.  The fit is comfortable and this top in classic black looks hot with boots and even dare we say jeans.  This is a great example of the top that has the ability to be dressed up or down and this top is certainly at the high end in terms of use of sequins.

Alternatively the Scoop Neck Sequin Top by Collective Concepts also uses contrasting colors of sequins to adorn this Olive Green scoop neck top. Here the design is limited to the shoulders and a beautiful classy pattern that gives this basic top an added flair.  The shoulder detail is just enough to give turn this top into a great statement piece for your closet. Certainly this sequin top can be worn casually with just about anything, but yet the use of sequins really does help to dress up this top and give it a bit of extra attention and sparkle.

Sequin tops may not be the top you want to wear every single day, but they are great ways to insert a little variety and feminine touch to your wardrobe.  You’ll find a variety of large sequins or smaller sequins and sequins in a variety of colors.  Of course this year metallic colors are very popular too. You may even find little touches like sequin belts or earrings that can spice up your wardrobe too.  No matter how you decide to insert a little sparkle into your wardrobe rest assured in knowing that this isn’t a flash trend that will be gone tomorrow and that classic sequins will certainly be a stylish way to add more feminine touches to your wardrobe.  If nothing else a little bit of sequins can help turn a basic top into a statement piece for your closet for years to come.

If earrings are more your style, then you will love the Hatchling Earring. The soft pink/peach quartz wrapped in gold is so delicate, but also makes a statement. I really like the two extra little charms that hang off, they add more dimension and help these earring really stand out.
