Shine is one of the biggest trends this upcoming holiday season. Metallic threads, lame, shimmering coated fabrics, gemstones, and sequins seem to be embellishing or taking over garments completely. As much as I love to dress up, I practically do not have a whole bunch of formal events to be attending so having some of these types of clothes are not in the cards for me even though I adore them. So today I am putting together an outfit with some sequined details that is just right for daytime wear for a casual work environment, the weekend, or a more laid back event.
I first spotted this military jacket on Poshmark several months ago when it was way too hot to be thinking about layering. The gold and copper sequined sleeves spoke to my inner glitter obsession. Now that it has finally cooled off a bit (at least for today) here in Southern California, I am able to proudly wear it.
Denim on denim is the name of the game with this look with a lighter chambray shirt and medium wash distressed jeans. The sparkle of the sequins look so great with the denim and they take on a daytime look next to them.
I kept the accessories to a minimum, but thoughtful with a light blush tassel clutch and pointy toe leopard flats. These shoes originally came with a black bow on the toe, but I performed surgery on them and removed them for a sleeker look.
