Outfit of the Week: This Post Is Sponsored By the Letter “S”

This week’s edition of Outfit of the Week is brought to you by the letter ‘S’ – as in sequins, studs, stripes, and, of course, me – Sarah! Still, when it came to finding a model for this post, I knew it had to be our fabulous Traditional Media Coordinator and reigning ‘Sequin Queen,’ Aire, who was kind enough to spill how she manages to fit a little sparkle into her everyday ensembles.

“When it comes to clothing, I’m like Jekyll and Hyde, ” she said. “I have two personalities – there’s the shiny rocker side, which tends to come out in the winter, and the bohemian side, which is more my spring/summer self. But I love studs, sequins, and rhinestones, so this outfit gave me the opportunity to combine them!”

Aire has an uncanny talent for styling sequins, as seen in her completely day-appropriate ensemble.  I especially love the headband she crafted from the studded strap of her Jeffrey Campbell boots!

Looking to add more sequins to your own workplace wardrobe? Aire advises starting with a sequined piece and build your outfit from there. “Some people find sequins intimidating, but if you work with the sequins instead of against them, it’s a lot easier to style,” she said. ” Sure, they can be formal. But they’re so much fun and shouldn’t just be kept for dressing up! For instance, I could have worn the top and boots with jeans and it would have been totally cute – but the skirt just took the outfit to another level!”

In this outfit: Time is Precious Watch, Backstage Boots, The Faux Fob Shirt, The Sequin-tially Essential Skirt, Where’s My Shred At? Cardigan
