Wearing Vintage Sequined Jackets with Jeans

A quick game of word association: what’s the first thing you think of when I say “sequins”?   Texas beauty queen? Tammy Faye Bakker? Corporate wife circa 1984?

Now let’s reframe the idea of glitter-y clothing.  Sequins will give you a very easy look to carry you through a whole season of events without breaking a sweat. A vintage sequined piece makes  a really great (and easy) of-the-moment  holiday look.  Pair that sequined jacket with something really casual, like distressed jeans. It’s a totally modern way to do sparkle.

It goes like this: wear some jeans (or other casual pants or even denim shorts). Put on a soft cotton tee shirt. Add a great vintage sequined jacket. Leave off most of your jewelry.

We can do this!
