Trend Alert: Shine On
By Yemisi Suleiman
Sequins are one of the hottest looks of the season and right in time too, with the party season already on us. Designers are still very much into the bright and bold look as metallic, sequins and everything glittering hit the runways in a big way at the recently held GTBank Fashion Weekend .
From Julien MacDonald to Tracy Reese the emphasis was on shine and really, what better way to make a statement in the new season?
Here are three modern ways to rock the trend.
Glittery Sequin Top Or Jacket
If head-to-toe glitter is too much for your liking, a glittery metallic jacket, worn on the shoulders, is stylish and edgy, an excellent option for those looking to add a little sparkle to their outfits Tuxedo pants are ideal with sequined tops. Add a black clutch purse, colourful pumps or sequined flats. You can also get in the party mood with a black jacket that has sequined details and wears your hair loosely for added edge.
A Sequin Dress
Slit into a dashing sequin dress you’ll be fully prepared for any occasion. However, If you are planning to wear sequins in look-at-me or very bright colours, let that be your jewellery for the night. Sequins have so much sparkle that you don’t need much jewellery.
The Day-To-Night Skirt
Forget the sensible skirt; it’s time to shine in something sequin. Go for unexpected shades to avoid looking too festive. Wear with fuss-free pieces to let your pencil skirt do all the work.
