While the holidays are prime time for sequined wear, you can still wear your shimmering tops, bottoms, and little dresses right now, as long as you stick to a few strategic style guidelines. The key to working Summer sequins is to make it look casual and nonchalant. Forget ultra-tight silhouettes and think breezy, not clingy. To help show you how, we've garnered fashionable examples from Joy Bryant, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Diane Kruger, who all suited up in their own versions of Summer-perfect, easy sequined styles. Now, click through to see how you can do the same.

Just when we thought we couldn't get enough of the striped-tee trend, three stylish celebs showed their stripes in nautical-inspired dresses. Alexa Chung styled hers with black tights and a chic trench during London Fashion Week, Sarah Paulson donned a thicker, slouchier stripe at last month's Independent Spirit Awards, and newly coiffed Brooklyn Decker paired her fitted French Connection frock ($84) with ballet flats and a black tote. Each lady puts her own spin on the piece and proves that an LSD — little striped dress — can make for a simple, flattering, and totally classic look. Check out the pieces below — and get shopping!
Unlike a mini or maybe a plunging neckline, there are a few ways of revealing some skin that never feel, well, too revealing. At the top of our list currently are shoulder-baring frocks, just the way fashion pack Alexa Chung, Michelle Monaghan, Abbie Cornish, and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld are showing them off. They're sexy, but not overt, leaving an exposed neckline to adorn with a fabulous statement necklace or dangling earrings. We love the feel of a looser, floral-print off-the-shoulder for a fresh '70s vibe by day, then slip into a body-con version and channel a sultrier side of the '80s by night.
Spring is definitely not the time to be shy, and after spending some months hunkered down in fashion hibernation, it's time to cheer up and break out of your rut. Bulky layers and moody hues aren't going to fly here, so click through to see 20 bold, vivid pieces — then get ready to show this season what you're made of.
Nicky Hilton and Jaime King were double trouble in a sequin cheetah UK Style by French Connection mini at the Lexington Social House launch in Hollywood. Both girls rocked the affordable and fierce frock with patent pumps. Nicky added a wide python-embossed belt, and for Jaime we chose a cropped leather jacket to add a touch of flair. Shop now to copy the dynamic duo's party style.
When we saw this woman walking the streets of Paris (center photo), our jaws dropped — so gorgeous! Sure, she's wearing a sheer top, but she walks with such self-assurance and elegance, proving she can rock the sheer trend. After seeing it on the runways for Spring at Phillip Lim and Valentino, we know this trend is a good investment. Key points: pair it with ladylike elements so it doesn't feel cheap. A long flowy skirt and structured jacket can also balance out the sexiness of the sheer top.
