Make the allover Sequined Tank for a totally disco-happy look that’s surprisingly easy to wear.

We’ve been loving the feminine, beachy vibe of this week’s Golden Sands collection. There’s something undeniably chic about luxurious metallic fabrics in neutral shades. These patterns have a little “wow” factor, but they’re simple and classic enough to wear almost anywhere.

The most popular design so far is the Sequined Tank. The boxy V-neck shape is basic, but the luxe allover sequins and crêpe de chine are anything but! Wear it on your next night out, and get ready to get noticed.

This tank’s loose silhouette looks best with something fitted, like dark wash skinny jeans. Play up the girlie factor with pretty pastel accessories. Stacks of bracelets are still in for summer, and I like the way candy-colored enamel picks up the different colors in the iridescent sequins. Skip a necklace and go for big earrings instead.

Keep your shoes and bag calm to play up the sequined tank. Canvas, leather, or snakeskin in ice cream colors have interesting texture without competing with the sparkle. Play up your face with a nude lipgloss and pearly highlighter, and you’re ready to get your shine on!

I think this subtle, feminine look would be perfect for date or girl’s night. What’s your take on sparkle?

Happy sewing,
