Trend Report: Sequined Jackets

Our outfits often reflect what the weather is like…and now that the sun is hiding, so are our most of our bright colored tunics and tops. But don't get too depressed.  Just because it’s dark and gloomy outside doesn’t mean that our wardrobe has to suffer.  With this winter’s newest trend in sight, every fashionista can add a little extra glamour to their wardrobe and still beat the cold.  Sequined jackets will keep you looking hot even when the sun is sooo not!

Looking for a way to stand out even in your winter business attire?  You can be the flashiest intern in the office with this Black Sequined Blazer by DressbyAngelo from Etsy ($79.00).  Even on the dullest days, you’ll be a true winter wonder.  Wear it with a collared shirt, dressy leggings, and your favorite black flats or boots to the office, or dress it up for a night out with simple tee, heels, and skinny jeans. 

Looking to amp up your favorite dress? Add some sparkle and shine with this Free Jazz Jacket by Modcloth (169.99).  With the same classy style of a warm, winter pea coat (but with a little extra drama), this is a great way to amp your favorite holiday event (New Year's, baby!). 

Want to keep it trendy without blowing your holiday budget?  You can even add a little more flash to your dark wither style with this Cropped Sequin Cocktail Jacket from Forever 21 (24.80).  It’s cute, sexy, and totally affordable if you're broke but eager to make a statement. 

Trust me, this is one trend you won’t want to miss out on.  Sequined jackets are just what you need to get through the cold of winter while still making a statement.
