The ball has dropped, the confetti and balloons have been cleaned up, and your sparkly holiday frock is hanging sadly in your closet; the new year is here! But that doesn't mean you can't wear that sequin dress again! I'm a firm believer that sequins and glitter aren't meant only for special occasions. In fact, I try to work it in to my daily outfits on the regular and I encourage everyone to resolve to wear more sparkle in 2013!
Much like the sequin skirt I wore in November, the secret to making the sequins dress work in the daytime is pairing them with casual basics. Belting a heather grey raglan top over this sequin dress hides the keyhole back and makes it instantly more appropriate for the daytime. tights and a military anorak make it a January-weather-appropriate ensemble. I couldn't resist wearing my brand new shoes, but I think this outfit would have worked will with a pair of flat or low ankle boots as well.
