How To Wear It: Sequins and Sparkle

Spring 2016 is big on sequins and sparkles in bright colours and they’re a great way to add a bit of fun to your wardrobe, but it’s scarily easy to slip from trendy to toddler!

So here’s my guide to wearing sequins in 2016 while staying classy (and keeping under budget!)

Dresses & Skirts

The sequin dress doesn’t have to be reserved for the office Christmas party – this spring you can and should feel confident enough pull it out for a date or night out with friends. Or find a dress with just a hint of sparkle to spice up your boring work clothes!

Bags and Purses
