Right about now is the time that I get super creative with winter dressing. That means mixing and matching prints, layering various pieces, and trying to bring as much fun to cold-weather dressing as possible. One way to do it? Wear sequins as much as possible. In search of some outfit ideas inspiration, I looked to some of my favorite fashion bloggers.
Wear them with plaid (above): Christine of The View From 5 ft 2 paired a black sequin pencil skirt with a very Christmasy tartan plaid shirt. Liz, founder of Sequins & Stripes, went a similar route. The trick here is to choose a plaid that has at least one color that picks up on the color of the skirt.

courtesy of bloggerWear them with tribal knits: Much like wearing them with camo, I love the idea of juxtaposing sequins with their complete opposite, in this case, super-chunky knits. Helena of Brooklyn Blonde chose to style hers with a cozy cape, but this look would also work with a Fair Isle sweater.What do you think of these outfit ideas? Have you tried any of these combinations?
