Shiny, happy clothing returns this fall thanks to a plethora of once-considered tacky-in-daytime sequins, which are now undergoing a cool renaissance. Designers and fashion labels are now attaching them to everything from pants and track jackets to go-go boots and earrings.
Here are examples of creative ways sequins have been layered onto daytime clothes and accessories to help sparkle up what might be an otherwise everyday look.
