Fashion Dos!: Sequins
By Elizabeth McGuffin of With Wonder and Whimsy
Step out in sequins and sparkle this holiday! Celebrate the season and the self with festive outfits that twinkle and shine. There’s nothing wrong with standing out, making a statement, or wearing a garment that draws attention. Sometimes that’s exactly the point! No woman should have to dull her sparkle or dress her body in a way that minimizes its size and shape. Getting dressed should be a ritual in self-care, self-expression, and self-acceptance. If sequins, glitter, and bling are your thing, then deck yourself out and fa-la-la-la-la to the critics! If you’re in need of some festive fashion inspiration, look to your favorite style bloggers. Sequins cycle back into fashion each holiday season, so you’re sure to find heaps of glittering outfit ideas in their archives.
