How I Wear My: Sequins

Sequined tank by Apt. 9 from Kohl’s, jacket from J. Crew.

For this month’s “How I Wear My” post, it’s all about the shine. Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) and I agreed this is a great time of year to focus on sequins.


I love sequins so much I’m convinced I’m part magpie, the bird attracted to shiny objects. I love how you can go full throttle and wear sequins to be the most sparkling person in the room, or use them to infuse your look with a touch of texture and shine, or just add a dash of glamour to denim. I think they are wonderful any time of year and I especially adore the surprise of them in the daytime.

I am also loving the bag!

Pam from over50feeling40. Think there aren’t sequins here? Think again!

I love how Pam incorporates sequins throughout her look, from a touch peeking out from behind her jacket, to the sequined purse and sequin-like bracelet. Subtle and gorgeous!

Paula of Fashion Over Fifty, looking ethereal and dreamy in periwinkle sequins.

Introducing my mother, looking stylish in an eggplant-colored blouse sprinkled with golden sequins.

Topaz Swarovski crystal necklace by Nerida Aylott of Art for Interiors. I wrote a post about it in January which you can read here.

Why not get 2012 off to a glamorous start and join Adrienne and me for “How I Wear My: Statement Necklace” on January 3? Send either of us a photo of yourself in your necklace and we will include you, and your blog if you have one, in our post!

My knee is perfect, I cannot believe it.
This second op. with a better surgeon has been so much easier. If I would have been in America I would have sued the first one for such a terrible job.
Anyway I am walking more everyday without the help of pain killers, ahhhhhhhhhhhh.
You are so kind to ask, dear Jill

I love your style photo! Great take on sequins and these diverse looks of these ladies, especially the blue colour as well. Sequins makes me smile. I mean, how does one not smile when a sparkle hits the eyes? lol :)

Linda said...

Thank you for the lovely compliments from you sweet ladies. You all made me feel so honored to be included in such delightful comments. Jill's Mom!! :)

Sparkling personalities, sparkling outfits. You all look so good! I just bought 2 dresses today to sell that are embellished with sequins, you know what they say? Great minds..like sequins.

Stunning sequins can look elegant with a pair of jeans or a dressy/casual skirts to a pair of slacks. Love the collaboration of women of all ages who all look simply fabulous! Well done...and great post Jill:-)

Well hello Mum! I love sequins - whether it be just a bit (to jazz up jeans as you've shown here) or loads of them - and it's great to see so many different ways of wearing them here by so many different age groups.
