If you were out and about in the '80s, you probably had a few shoulder-padded sequined get-ups lying around. I wasn't… but I've seen pictures (lookin' good, Mom)! If you are feeling at all nostalgic lately, you are in luck. The sequin trend is back, and with New Year's Eve moments away, there is no better time to shine. To avoid sparkle-overload, I've come up with six gorgeous pieces to include in -- and amp up -- your wardrobe.

If you are a blingy beginner, I suggest starting off with a sequined pump or a sparkled clutch. Add a funky gold collar to your cotton top for a fun sparkly look. Don't feel the need to pile pieces on. Start small and get comfortable with the trend!

For the more gutsy fashionistas, I recommend either a sequined top paired with some skinny jeans or a pencil skirt, or a sequined skirt to wear with a sheer blouse. Or even better, blow everyone away with a sequined tuxedo jacket and all eyes will be on you. Just one tip -- please don't do head-to-toe sequins. Unless you want to look like a disco ball, moderation is key.
