Tim Gunn Warns Against Sequins

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Style guru Tim Gunn has a warning for the fashion-challenged: Avoid sequins at all costs!

The Project Runway mentor – who stars on his own series, Tim Gunn’s Guide To Style – says the first sign of a fashion fiasco is when someone has a closet full of sparkly sequins.

Gunn says sequins should only make appearances at figure skating competitions and nowhere else.

He says tacky trends take a backseat to true style, which is about personal preference and fit.

Gunn explains, “A trend is only good if it works for you.”

He believes aspiring fashionistas should focus on developing a style that helps them “navigate the real world,” and commends stylish starlets Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker for mastering this tactic.

Gunn explains, “These ladies are fashion appropriate no matter what they’re doing. They can glam it up, but when it’s time to pick up the kids from daycare, they adapt their styles.”

The second season of Tim Gunn’s Guide To Style premieres tonight (Oct. 2) on Bravo.
