Kat's Closet: Sparkle in Sequins!

Every time I'm in a clothing store I end up in the sequined aisle, I guess that's just the Latina in me! Sequins are a way to show you're powerful and grab attention while looking glowing and romantic.

Sequined fashion has been around for a long time. Unlike today, sequined dresses only used to be appropriate for parties and galas—no one would dare rock sequins for a less formal affair. But today, our stylish generation has found new ways to make the beautiful shiny material everyday apparel.  Nowadays, you can wear sequins for literally any occasion.

Chicas wear sequin blouses with denim or leather. There's even sequins on shoes, sneakers, watches and purses! Sequin is the new bling for garments.

It's in so much demand right now, there's even sequined designs in children's wear. There's also a men's vest line embellished with sequins. For the 15th anniversary of Latina, I was inspired by the Latinas in old Hollywood Latina but still wanted a funky touch. So, I wore a gold sequin mini dress by Kymerah with see through mesh cutouts on the sides and upper back. I paired it with beautiful sexy tribal copper Giuseppe Zanotti high heeled sandals and purse.

Just remember, whether you're going to a party, a gala, or just to see a movie or take a walk in the park, sequins are always an option!
