Sequins, sparkles, & metallics are a currently growing trend of 2011. Celebs like Kristen Stewart, Emma Roberts, Selena Gomez, Miranda Cosgrove, and Kim Kardashian have been spotted wearing these metallics. Sequined shorts, skirts, leggings, or pants paired with a slouchy sweater can make an outfit look effortlessly chic. I personally love a silver sequined miniskirt!
Try mixing metals: a silver necklace with a gold sequined dress is unexpected and fun. You can also try pairing your sequined skirt with a denim shirt, or your sequined tanktop with distressed jeans or shorts. Add a burst of shine to an all-black outfit with sparkle pumps. Try a sequined sweater, blazer, belt, or clutch to make a neutral-colored outfit pop.
