A few weeks ago, I bought two long sequin tanks on clearance at Express. I bought them to add a little texture to my normal cycle of outfits and to cover my back draft. Unexpectedly, people have been crazy-go-nuts for these shirts. I've been wearing them with jeans and sweaters I've worn 60 times and suddenly people think they've never seen any of those clothes before.
Generally, I let them peek out from under my tops. If you're sensitive about the size of your hips, buy a shorter, high-necked sequin top to draw attention to your face instead. They're also fantastic under the sheer blouses or thin jersey. The pictured sequin tee is $59.99 from Express. It's available in four fantastic basic colors -- pale grey, black, ivory and ballet pink. Although with all the holiday sales going on right now, you can easily find such a shirt for under $20.
