O U T F I T D E T A I L S : RUFFLE TOP | SEQUIN SKIRT (SIMILAR, ALSO IN RED & BLACK) | BCBG PUMPS — OLD (SIMILAR, FUN SPARKLY OPTION) | VINTAGE CLUTCH — FOUND THE EXACT ONE! (SIMILAR, SIMILAR VINTAGE)
I love December, and while I early prefer the warmer months of Fall leading up to it, the festive season gets me right in the feels! The music, the parties, the decor and the glam–this is definitely the time of year I love to pull out the sparkle and sequins and go ham!
Sequin pieces are something I love to collect (I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to sequin outfits!) but I tend to only wear them during the holiday season, so now is the time to take advantage.
I have a couple sequin skirts in my wardrobe and this one is four years old (case in point, eek!), but I’ve linked a bunch after the jump if you’re looking to add one to your closet. I paired mine with a pretty off-shoulder-ish ruffle top and a classic black pump. To off set the harshness of the black shoe, I added the mesh-beaded clutch and a red lip to tie it together. Another great option would be with a chunky sweater tucked into only the front of the skirt, or a simple tee for an edgy-chic look.
I’ve had this clutch for years and found it at a thrift store (I also have the same one in gold, found at a different thrift store years apart) and have gotten so much use out of it. It’s unique because it’s vintage, well made, and there is a shoulder strap that tucks inside. I found this exact clutch HERE. So cool!
