Sequins & Winter Fashion

Sequins & Winter Fashion

Glitter, shine, sparkle, twinkle and shine! That is my message for Winter 2017. Sequins continue to be a huge trend this season and I’ll be sure to take advantage of it!



While the weather in Chicago might be unpredictable, one thing remains constant, though: Sequins. They are major this season. I’ve been dying to wear this sequin top for a while but haven’t had a chance yet. Initially I wanted to wear it before New Years but as the saying goes: Sometimes pregnancy takes all of your energy away. Now you may think that sequins are only good for a night out, but you should think again! Why not try something new and consider daytime sequins? How can you make sure you do not go overboard? It’s very simple: Match it with a basic or classic piece of clothing, like a metallic midi skirt and a cozy faux fur vest to complete your look.



Et voilà…you’re rocking the trend! What do you think?! Do tell by commenting below, and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!

    I love sequins although I’ve never owned anothing with them I always wanted them for NYE or Christmas but never seemed to get round to getting anything. Never mind I can look at your pretty pictures for hope haha.

    You are so right, dear V., the sequined top is so cool and beautiful, you should wear it anytime and the way you wore was really “edel”, with the vest and the lovely pleated skirt! Loved the beanie too, it’s such a stylish outfit and you look really stunning! That could be a nice outfit for a night out with friends or a date and I will really look for a top like that – I really loved it! Hope that this month you have more energy and that the end of the pregnancy goes in a smooth way, dear V.! Hugs and kisses!

    You look absolutely GORGEOUS, Vanessa! I love the way you’ve styled the sequin top with the metallic skirt, they blend together so perfectly and I love the warmth, texture, and casual element the faux fur vest adds to the outfit. I can definitely attest to pregnancy draining your energy, lol. These days, I’m feeling so tired and blah, but trying my best to push past it. Thanks so much for sharing, my beautiful friend, and I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!

    Love, Lindsey

    Yes, to sequins all year round, especially when they look this good! I don’t think it gets any better than sequins, fur and metallics 🙂 I know your pregnancy is making you feel so tired but your style is on point 🙂
    Hope you’re having a great week.

    Sequins are definitely always fun and there are absolutely more casual ways to wear them so you can get more use out of them! Hope you at least had fun staying in on New Year’s!! You look great and I love this whole look! XO

    I adore this outfit! I always feel like I have to tone my outfits down after Christmas ends so the fact you’re leading the way on the style stakes with metallics, sequins will still maintaining the classic winter look excites me – such a fabulous look!

    I really love these shots! I definitely want to invest in a sequin piece myself, a little glitter really makes an impact!
