If you’ve been reading Little Bird for a while, you might’ve noticed I have a fondness for sparkly things. You could call me the magpie girl, if there wasn’t already a fabulous blogger going by the same name. I like statement necklaces, blinging rings and sequins… lots and lots of sequins. Just yesterday I was prancing around in a sequin cape, and you can see further evidence of my Strictly Come Dancing tendencies here and here.
Despite my love affair with shimmer, I often find myself swapping my most sparkly clothing with something more demure for daytime. But the festive season is more forgiving than most when it comes to fashion (reindeer jumpers, anyone? Snowman earrings? Tinsel worn as a necklace?), so now’s the perfect time to get your Joan Collins on. Take a look at my tips for wearing sequins during the day…
- Choose simple separates – a cotton top, wool jumper or fitted cardigan will soften the sparkle
- Keep accessories to a minimum – don’t overload the look with excessive bling
- Go for chunky heels or flat pumps – anything too delicate will give your outfit an evening edge
- Mix your sequins with denim or 120 deniers, depending on the format!
