Look for AW11: Sequin Skirts

Blake Lively in Missoni

Jayma Mays in J Crew

We've been going crazy for this US led look for a while, blogging about the J Crew sequin mini (above) back in March time when we came back from New York.  Check out that post here.  However, now the look has reached British shores, and we're all over it.   Here is the skirt, below.

Buy it here from netaporter.com

This look is so versatile, you can dress it up or down as the two pictures do above.  It's also very flattering on any size as the sparkle and detail draw the eye away from anything else.  The J Crew skirt is £225, which understandably doesn't work for everyone, so we've found one high street and one online version that are cheaper.  Do bear in mind that with sequins, you can buy it cheaply - but expect it to be exactly that.  If you pay peanuts you get monkeys... This isn't one for Primark.

As talked about in the week, our new brand crush is Vince clothing which has just launched itself into the UK market, presumably as every time a Brit visited the US they protested for them to do so - as they are British casual cool to a T.  Here's their sequin skirt, and it's in the sale!

Go and get one - this look will roll into AW and once it gets colder you can always wear tights with it, or brave the ice in the name of fashion...
