All Sequin Apparel - will you be wearing it?

It's one thing to have some sequin worked into the shoulder or the neckline or some parts of a skirt. It's another thing all together to have sequins EVERYWHERE. With all-sequin apparel, the bling factor is out of this world, and you have to be ready to shine. But if done right, it is a beautiful and wearable trend. Let's see if I can convince you.

First of all, we have celebrities in sequin minis. Make it look easy to wear, doesn't it?

With Lauren Conrad (top picture), the key with wearing a sequin dress is to keep everything else simple. Hair pulled back into a no-fuss bun, nude lips, and toned-down jewelry all keep the alice+olivia sequin dress as the focus of the outfit (as it should be), and do not overload onlookers. Miley Cyrus, on the other hand, had a lot more going on in terms of accessories. This is acceptable because she chose a simple white tank to go with her Free People sequin mini (which can convert into a tube top). The way a sequin miniskirt goes, the bling peeks out and grab people's attention, and then the attention starts drifting to other details in the outfit. So you can just replace the sequin mini with whatever mini you used to wear and go about as usual with an updated and fashionable look.

Not convinced yet? Here are some more examples of beautiful dresses, skirts, leggings, vests, and jackets with sequins to seduce your senses...

Fine, this last one is really just a splattering of sequins, but it's really cute and it's on sale now. Well, are you convinced yet?

What are some of your concerns for wearing an all-sequin apparel out?
