Four Sequin Tees: Would You Wear One?

Vince's Sequin Wedge Tee has me swooning but it's $295 at So I started looking for some more affordable options...

Option 1: This sequin tee from Forever 21 is just $26 and its available in blue, peachy pink or silver. I like the length but I'm unsure about the neckline.

Option 2: Delia's Mariah Sequin Tee doesn't boast all-over sequins but the sequins look luxe (at least in the product pic) and the fit is relaxed. At $34.50, it seems like a win.

Option 3: The Limited has a version of the sequin tee for $49.90. It looks a little tight but I might be able to size up and still make it work.

Option 4: And finally, this oversized sequin tunic from Spiegel is a little pricey at $89, but the cut makes it look more fashion-y than some of the other options. Hmmm...

Which would you wear (if any)?
OOOO super cute. I'd wear either The Limited or Spiegel. I can see the one from The Limited under my black pin-stripe suit as a little sparkle.

Sigh. The Vince one is the only version that really appeals. Of course, I was just thinking last night that my thrifted sequin tee and tank NEVER get worn!

If I'm being perfectly honest, I probably wouldn't wear one -- Just a bit too flashy for me and my lifestyle (not to mention location ... pretty sure Denverites would look at me like I had 2 heads). Of the options you've shown here, though, I'd go with the Spiegel option; it definitely looks the most expensive, but this is one of those styles that's hard to replicate well!

The Vince one or the Spiegel one for sure! I've been wanting to try a look like this for a while now. :-)

I'd wear the Delia's and Spiegel... they'd look okay even if you're not the skinny type.

I love the Vince one... none of the others seem to have that drape. Express carries a sleeveless one too with a great drape and they come in 4 different shades as well.

I Love the Vince one but--and I can't believe I'm saying this--I'm a little over all the sequins!

Definitely the last one... I don't really like the white trim though but it's a bit more festive. Too bad Vince is so pricey, it's fabulous!

I love sequin tees; I have picked up a few at thrift stores. I love wearing them with cutoff denim shorts (jorts if you will) and a jacket. I can't say I'd wear it to church or the lab but I think if you keep the rest of the outfit more casual it's a cute look during the day.

if the occasion is special enough, the VINCE top is the deal! You'll look good, you'll feel good & you'll be eye candy for the entire evening. GO VINCE!
