With sequin and liquid metallic dresses as seen on every single Hollywood star, I need to confess, I’m getting more and more bored with them. So is there an alternative? The allover-sequin pants and wet-look metallic leggings revamp the classic party looks. The overall effect is fresh, fun, and completely new.
Metallic leggings: Theyskens Theory
Belgium designer Olivier Theyskens clearly went back to the days of disco with his Theyskens Theory Spring Summer 2012 collection. Most remarkably, he sent one of his models down to illuminate the runway wearing glitzy, party-ready gold and green metallic pants. The shimerring ensemble was paired with a plain top, scoop neck jacket and a messenger bag, all of which were minimalistically white.
Sequin pants: Isabel Marant
Before that, there was Jessica Alba who graced the magazine photoshoot in blue Isabel Marant Folco leggings, a black tank top and House of Lavande jewelry. The bold sequin-embellished piece came from designer’s Fall 2010 Ready-To-Wear collection. Jessica definitely pulled off the edgy look with aplomb! Photo credit: Coolspotters.
This glamorous and easy-fit styles inspire fashionistas to use the glimmer as a neutral to create countless fun or polished ensembles. As of polished, metallic leggings will be a great base for effortless Holiday party looks. As of fun, put away the pretense that sequins are for evening only. You can shine on in sequin pants paired with jacket and other basic layering pieces for a more casual office look. Be a rock star in your own right!
Have a look at the editor’s picks. Make a glittering statement in the Siwy Denim Hannah pants in blue. Lustrous sequins take up every inch of the cropped style, making for a look that’s dramatic, daring, and fun. If allover-sequin is too risqué for you, try glamour with an edge epitomized in liquid metallic ankle-grazing pants instead. Feeling like some bold patterns? Siwy Denim brings brilliance to their exclusive Hanna slim-fitting crop pants with a gold abstract pattern.
