Sometimes, it’s fun to make a statement. Jackets adorned with sequins, tinsel and paillettes will help you do just that. If those words bring a negative image to mind of a shoulder-padded version from the 1980’s, think again. Recent runways have showcased sequin jackets that are glamorous, intricate and extraordinary in terms of workmanship. For a direct runway take-down look, pair a sequin jacket over a printed dress or even better, a matching pajama set. Not for the fashion-shy, this combination feels elevated and on trend. A cropped black sequin jacket is a perfect way to cover up an all black LBD or date-night outfit. Dress your sequin jacket down by pairing it with boyfriend jeans and a white t-shirt. This juxtaposition between high and low fashion is exactly what is happening in the marketplace right now, and feels very street-style chic. Fabulous vintage sequin jackets do exist if you are willing to hunt them down, but this trend is also bound to be going mainstream in the very near future. Of course, there is no better night to wear a sequin jacket than New Years Eve, so get yours before the countdown begins!
