Reader Request: Styling Sequins for Holiday

sequins holiday party

Reader Magnolia had this question:

Now that the holiday season is around the corner, this year I am feeling very attracted to glitter and sequins and all things shiny. I am loving this Adrianna Papell dress in lead color. [Shown in image above, plus size version here]

But, this is the first time I am thinking of wearing something SO shiny. I am wondering how to style this? If nude pumps will be fine or I need to wear high metallic heels. I feel like going all glitzy but totally unsure how to go about it. May be you would like to take this up for one of your posts? How to wear sequins and glam for the holiday season? read more

This Week I Love …

… subtle metallics.

I will admit to buying a silver sweater last year. I loved the idea of metallic threads mixed with cotton and wool, and the one I ordered looked very cool in the photos but more or less like sweater-shaped aluminum foil on arrival. (Like this, but … worse.) But I’ve been eyeing metallic clothes, shoes, and bags since then and pondering another purchase. Here are a few subtle metallics that have caught my eye:

J.Crew Linen Boatneck Tee – $45

I managed to thrift up a blue-gray metallic linen tee, and I just adore it. Woven linen wrinkles the second you look at it, but linen knits like this are less wrinkle-prone. This top would look amazing with tan or light khaki slacks, light wash or gray jeans, or a pastel pencil skirt. Also take a peek at this metallic linen blazer in regular and petite sizes … though it will be much wrinklier. eBay has some plus size options, including Eileen Fisher. read more
