Wear It Five Ways : Gold Sequin MiniDecember 18, 2011
The fashion blogosphere is the perfect breeding ground for clothing fever. A few years ago I would longingly look at sequin dresses usually available for the holiday season but submit to the reality that I am too plain of a dresser for them. However, after seeing sequins skirts styled so successfully on numerous bloggers, I decided to buy one to try the trend out for myself. I also decided to reinstate my Wear It Five Ways feature because I have been a little too shopping happy lately and not as critical of my purchases as I should be.
As always, please feel free to comment on other ways you would wear a similar item.
#1 -Preppy up top, sequin on the bottom : This is an easy way to dress down sequin skirts for a day look.

#5 - Neutral blouse and shoes : This is perhaps my favorite way to wear a sequin mini. I think the neutral palette works very well with the gold and silver sequins. For darker colored sequin mini's a navy blue blouse would look lovely.

The sequin mini worn in this post is a size s. t is available in xs online. It seems to fit looser and looser with every wear for some reason but my biggest gripe is that the lining is shorter than the sequin outer (makes sense), so the tights often get caught on the sequins. I took the mini on a weekend trip recently and destroyed two pairs of tights in the process. It's an expensive mistake if you have fine taste in tights.
