Sequins for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Casual Version

Quote of the day: “Know your limits, but never accept them.” Anonymous

By time we reach “middle age,” I’m sure there is at least one sequined item in your closet. This piece of clothing has probably been worn for a festive occasion or holiday  since we all think of these glittery embellishments as special and fun! But have you ever worn that item for a casual day out? This is the category that I received the “eye roll” from my wonderful models (even if I couldn’t see it…I could feel it!), but I’m on a mission. Why not wear your nice clothes? Not just for “special” occasions, but also for everyday! Call me crazy, but here goes!

50’s Sequins (Dress): My goal was to wear the dress with my new houndstooth tennies and by belting the dress to make it quite a bit shorter, I found I loved this look!

60’s Sequins (Poncho): Even though Nancy’s poncho has a sequin here and there, it is relatively casual. So the addition of leggings was an easy choice.

Poncho: Tasha (similar here in ecru)~~Leggings: Cold Water Creek (similar here)~~Boots: Enzo Angiolini (similar here)~~Scarf: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: I knitted it (similar here in beads)

70’s Sequins (Shirt): The hiking boots and jean jacket help somewhat subdue the blinginess of the shirt, right?

    YES to sequins and all 3 sequin looks. Especially love the casual looks. Wearing a sequin piece is like wearing some jewelry to add sparkle or shine to an outfit – totally stylish. Charlotte’s personally fashioned top is divine, as usual, and Jodie’s dress is fabulous. Nancy’s pretty sequined poncho is very subtle and versatile – you could add more bling to hers when desired.

      It’s nice to know that there are others out there that like this too, Kathleen!!
      My mom still has trouble with combining the “dressy” items for more casual outfits!! But I think I’m wearing her down–LOL!

    Great style Jodie. I love the houndstooth tennies your outfit looks very fun! Nancy is looking very comfortable and well styled. Your mom is ready for a day of errands or a walk or even a trip to the ……. dentist! Good job styling the sequins for every day wear.
