The Rules To Keeping It Modern When Wearing Sequins
If I tried to describe Naomi Watts’ Derek Lam dress you would think it was old fashioned. A fully sequined, long sleeve dress that really looks like a blouse and midi skirt. The truth is anything but, it looked ultramodern thanks to a number of really great style features.
Firstly, if you do decide to venture into the fully beaded domain, you need to have guts and go all out. Half-half won’t do here. When you look at the dress you realize that the beads are more of a canvas and not the style features themselves.
Notice the elaborately beaded peplum feature, the waistband, neckline and cuffs. Each a different embroidery style they work to highlight her waist, neck and hands.
The skirt, in another texture altogether is sheer enough to show off her underwear, a major trend this season. The crisscross cut edge of the skirt adds playfulness to the look. The matching sandals completing this complicated yet perfectly executed outfit.
