Sequins are usually reserved for fancy evening affairs, but not this season. Tsumori Chisato's pale sequin stripe top (<a href="TKTK" target="_blank">$287 at La Garconne</a>) pairs perfectly with gray silk pants by Willow (<a href="http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/103404?cm_mmc=LinkshareUS-_-Custom-_-Link-_-Builder&siteID=Hy3bqNL2jtQ-hW2XtMqIQG4te6P2uZY6Pw" target="_blank"> $470 at Net-a-Porter</a>). Some silk paisley flats from Urban Outfitters (<a href="http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?itemdescription=true&itemCount=80&startValue=81&selectedProductColor=&sortby=&id=19324094&parentid=WOMENS_SHOES&sortProperties=+subCategoryPosition,product.displayName&navCount=216&navAction=jump&color=&pushId=WOMENS_SHOES&popId=WOMENS&prepushId=&selectedProductSize=&cm_mmc=Performics-_-Affiliates-_-Polyvore-_-DDI%20Link" target="_blank">$28 at Urban Outfitters</a>) are a stylish steal, and a matching rose gold clutch from J.Crew (<a href="http://www.jcrew.com/womens_feature/NewArrivals/bags/PRDOVR~33721/33721.jsp" target="_blank">$59.50 at J.Crew</a>) ties in the glittery tee.
