All That Glitters

I have always admired sequins from afar. Although I was drawn to their sparkle, I thought they were strictly for movie stars, beauty pageants, and ruby slippers. Recently, I have begun to see that you don’t need an academy award to wear them. And, in fact, there is a good reason to sport sequins when we are of a certain age–the beautiful glow that they cast is like special lighting for the face. They give off an almost magical iridescence and aura. So the only question that remains is…are you a cool silver, a warm gold, a rich rose gold, a deep sapphire blue, an emerald green, a magenta, or other?

Check out my top picks for this year’s sequined wares.
