This is why I tend to associate sequins with my winter wardrobe. However, they are a perfect way to spice up any summer outfit! Sequins are by no means a new trend, but  sporting them during the summer is a fresh idea. has even included sequins in their Summer 2010 Shopping Guide. Shoes, shorts, and tops are all being jazzed up with these shiny little discs.
The Fashionista pictured has the right idea of how to include sequins in a warm weather outfit. She wore a pretty white tank top by 7 for All Man Kind with light denim shorts. The casual jean shorts contributed to the laid back summer look. Adding a bright color pair of flats also helped give this outfit some personality. What I love most about her shirt is the sequins aren’t too flashy. This shirt can be worn during the day and easily transitioned to night. My advice is that when wearing sequins during the summer pick a color, other than black. Try white, silver, or gold. These colors are more fun for your hot nights out on the town.
