If you thought sequins were only reserved for the holidays, think again—there’s a way to sport the festive look for summer, as evidenced by Natalie Portman’s recent ensemble. Selecting a sequined dress with a demure silhouette (read: shift or similar) allows you to play with louder colors and prints without seeming garish. Style your hero piece with simple strappy sandals and understated earrings to keep the effect chic (not clubby) and get ready to sparkle your way through the season.
