Here's my take. I'm not huge on looking gaudy, so I tried to tone it down a lot. I also prefer the unconventional sequins...I probably wouldn't have bought this skirt if it weren't for the fact that the sequins were scalloped, like fish scales:
Of course, sequins don't have to be glamrock, you can have a vintage-y twist on it, like Kitten Paws Vintage:

They can be hardcore or cute or quirky! You just have to know what you want, and once again, make it your own! Here are some quick guidelines:
-Sequins are bold, so keep the rest of your outfit relatively basic, otherwise you'll have a battle for dominance in your outfit.
-Don't overload. If you're wearing a sequin dress, its all the sparkle you'll need.
-Be modest. What you're wearing is already sexy and flashy enough, so don't go baring all on top of it. You'll look slutty.
-Don't be afraid. If you don't like to dress quite so out-there, but want to get in on the trend, you can try something simple, like a t-shirt with sequin trim, or a hat or scarf.
