Summer Sequins

Prom Girl In Early Morning Light

Save the Liza Minnelli look for autumn/winter. Summer sequins are lighter in color and weight, mixed with fabrics that move, rather than simply fall and/or sprinkled on garments evoking champagne bubbles or an unexpected breeze. They’re frankly more fun. Separates are more easily worn casually as well as dressed up. A sequin skirt and a plain silk t or sequin top and cotton pants or jeans actually works this time of year.

Rebecca Taylor Sequin Strapless Dress

Perfect for a wedding or party this young, feminine dress moves with you and flatters the figure. Fresh and simple, it should not be worn with heavy make-up. Keep jewelry light and delicate as well-silver, crystal, or rhinestone. Fitted bodice, pleated, full skirt, back zipper closure. Self tie. Strapless and short. Color: Panecotta. Polyester/rayon/spandex. On sale $177.00

Easy tops

Left: Diane von Furstenberg Asymmetric Top- Gorgeous sherbet color with insouciant relaxed look. Great over silk pencil pants or a narrow chiffon skirt to dress up or cotton pants or mini to take advantage of its casual tendencies. They call this neon yellow-looks on-trend lime to me. Asymmetric neck with single black shoulder strap. Oddly sexy. Easy, short sleeves, dropped armhole. 100% silk. Partially lined in silk-crepe. On sale $330.00

Right: J. Crew Chartreuse Silk-Georgette Top- Pair with this year’s printed pants for a fashionable entrance. Play with colors.

J. Crew Skirts to Be Dressed Up or Down
