Holiday trend alert: Pairing sequins with denim

The most refreshing thing about denim is how many options it gives for a multitude of occasions. Street style muses, runway models and print ads play around with sparkle and denim for an unexpected, casual-glam look. I put four looks together to get inspired for upcoming holiday parties.

My first look was an edgy play on black and gold. I love the look of leather pants, a stunning top and a denim jacket. It's perfect for day and night.

My second look was a chic, muted gray sparkly top with jeweled and embellished accessories. Keeping it simple is easy, but adding shiny staple pieces adds the pizzazz.

For the third look, flirty was written all over it. I toned down my gold sequined dress with a denim, collared top tied up at the waist. I kept the bottom part of my outfit fancy with shiny pumps.

My fourth outfit was on the casual side as well. A striped gold-and-cream cardigan paired with a distressed denim pencil skirt is cutting-edge and chic at the same time.
