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.
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!
Dress: All Green (similar here)~~Tunic: Elie Tahari for Kohl’s (similar here)~~Shoes: Payless (similar here)~~Tights: La Scala (similar here)~~Scarf: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)
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?
Shirt: Mom made it (similar here)~~Jeans: LOFT (similar here)~~Top Under: Wintersilks (similar here)~~Jacket: Guess (similar here)~~Boots: Great Land (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Pins: (similar here & here)
If you liked any of these photos, it would help me if you pinned them to your own Pinterest board. It’s one way that others can see our outfits.
Even if you wouldn’t consider purchasing your clothing online, it can be helpful to look through my links to see what is available! It certainly doesn’t hurt my feelings, if you click on them but don’t like them. Just so you know, one of the ways I make money from this blog is through these linked items.
