Back in the 1980s, you could buy a big sequin for a couple of bucks. They’ve been around since the 18th century when people would sew their sequins onto their clothes as a fashion statement. Back then, sequins were made of metal, but now they’re made of plastic, making them look cheap rather than fashionable and chic. You’re just less likely to see them. One Reddit user is highly opinionated about it, saying, “Ok, so like a couple of little sequins on the sleeve of a shirt or dress are fine but so many dresses are completely COVERED in sequins. That itches!! And it looks tacky!! This might just be me but dresses and shirts made of sequins should just die already.” Just leave the sequins at home (via Reddit).
