In these next weeks of fall leading into winter, every Spot86 Chick should run, not walk, to get on the sequin, metallic and silver trend. Yes, that’s right I’m obsessed with everything that is shiny and shimmery this season. All the celebs and influencers are flaunting their frills and glitz this season, so let’s get to it!
It’s difficult for me to adjust to trends that are so bright (and not neutral), but as an accented accessory or for a night out, I am willing to embrace to glitz. Although I’m not joining the glitter gang anytime soon, I’m looking forward to a full silver wrap top or vintage sequins to add glamour to my fall and winter ensembles. If you’re not ready for the full silver glimmer, try a deep green silky sheen top or that beautiful rose gold in a slick fabric that will give off an extra glow to your outfit. Here is a great take on the glimmering trend with a Michelle Mason Bias Maxi Skirt.
There are so many different way ways to incorporate the glitz, such as velvet or sateen booties or a glimmering clutch. These are a few of my favorite, glamorous pieces that will complete your autumn ensemble. Take for example, the Gucci Dionysus leather shoulder bag or Christian Louboutin Moulamax Pai Ankle Boots.
Glimmering Through the Ages
Let’s take it back to when sequins were popular… Just kidding they’ve always been popular! From the flapper days to the 70s and everything in between, sequins have been an essential accent. Even in 1000s B.C., archaeologists discovered gold discs around King Tut’s tomb! If the Ancient Egyptians in all their glory approved, then I guess I do too! It must be time for me to start drinking the silver and gold Koolaid (so to speak!)
The difference in the trend this year is wearing subtle shades of glimmer to complete your everyday look, instead of pops of gold and silver for an event or special occasion. As Edward Abbey stated mentioning California, “There is science, logic, reason; there is thought verified by experience. And then there is California…” And then there are sequins and shiny things!
