Style tip? 
Shiny fabrics tend to visually enlarge the figure, so wear accordingly.  Runway models (and those with slender figures) can get away with allover shine, but the rest of us should restrict shine to a single part of our outfits.  If you love your legs, for example, you can draw attention towards them with a shiny skirt. 

If you do dare to wear a shiny dress, though, it doesn’t hurt to try a tummy tucker underneath.  Tummy tuckers, like the ones made by Spanx, smooth out any figure bumps and blemishes and prevent them from being spotlighted by the shine.

What do you think?  Would you wear sequins and shine?  And if so, with what?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    Contrary to popular opinion, they actually do eat. Or at least some of them do. They have catered food backstage at the shows, and I’ve even seen them eating dessert!
