Sequins, A Holiday Trend

Sequins have been around for a surprisingly long time; gold sequins were used as decoration on clothing as early as 2500BC, and metal ones used on billboards and signage before the invention of neon signs. In the modern day, they’re making a comeback with the holiday season.

I have to admit, I have always been a bit apprehensive about sequins, as they tend to make a pretty loud statement. Not to mention the bad memories I have of them scratching me as a fidgety child. I think, however, that our relationship has grown as I have aged, and I’ve come to appreciate their eye-catching qualities.

As Rakhee pointed out in her latest Wearing The Trend video, sequins are perfect for the holiday season, because they share the same appeal as decorated Christmas trees – they sparkle and twinkle just like the lights. Even after the holidays are over, sequins are still wearable, and bring vibrancy amongst the piles of drab winter clothes.

The best way to style an outfit with sequins is to pair it with solid colours and smooth fabrics – stay away from the chunky knits. But really there aren’t any set rules, so style it your own way, and wear what makes you feel beautiful!
