Fall Styling Tips Straight From The Runway: Sequins For Day & Layering Cardigans

Many runway looks are fantasized versions of what are actually completely wearable trends. In this 2 week series, we break down some of our favorite styles from the Fall 2009 runways to show you simple designer-inspired styling tricks that anyone can pull off.


Sequins are a huge trend this season, and they’re no longer just for evening and holiday parties. Pair one sequin piece with some of your more casual pieces like jeans or a blazer and you’ve got a great daytime look.


Free People has really nailed this trend this season with affordable sequin pieces that mix effortlessly with jeans and other daytime pieces. Here are some of our favorites:

A fresh take on cardigans this season is to layer two of them together. This is a great way to breathe new life into the cardigans you already own, or an excuse to buy even more of this wardrobe staple. Get creative and try pairing cardigans of different lengths, textures and colors. The only rule? Avoid wearing two bulky cardigans together and always wear the chunkier piece on top.

Here are some ways to create the look:
