Sequins and sparkles aren’t just for New Year’s Eve and evening excursions. In fact, Neiman Marcus declares you should NOT be saving your sequins for after dark. Let’s talk about how you can add a dose of shine to your daytime look and introduce the glimmer in a subtle sort of way.
HOW TO WEAR SEQUINS FOR DAY:
Ladies, there really is no rule in the fashion handbook when it comes to wearing sequins during the day, as long as you do not look like a disco ball (seriously!). In fact, sequins can look chic and modern any time of the day when styled correctly. With the holiday season right around the corner (I know…only 4 months away!), think about getting some extended wear with those holiday pieces you might purchase.
I would suggest focusing on these three key sequin pieces to add to your closet.
If you do not own a sequin tank, I would recommend purchasing one right away. There are endless ways you will wear a beautiful, shimmery tank. I’ve styled my simple silver tank with some very casual jeans for a lunch date with girlfriends. I would also wear this tank with a black skirt to church and brunch. It could also be office friendly under a conservative black blazer. I love the look of a sequin tank layered under a crisp white blouse and black slacks. Check out these options for a sequin tank to add to your wardrobe here, here, and here.
There are so many beautiful skirts that are not glaring and in your face, but beautiful and classy. Depending upon your age and style, pick a mini skirt or a longer pencil skirt. I am in love with this camo skirt here and would wear it with a simple black tee. Camo is a huge trend this fall. I also adore this very simple black mini skirt and would wear it with a beautiful georgette blouse. This classic sequined silver pencil skirt will take you a million places! I would throw this on with a simple tee and a killer biker jacket.
You can’t go wrong with a stunning, show-stopping sequin blouse. This Tibi blouse would be adorable dressed down with ripped jeans or dressed up with black slacks. I love this sleeveless shell here, this fun sequin rugby here, and for a casual look, this striped tie blouse here.
When wearing your sequin piece, keep everything else pretty simple. This means no big accessories, no super bold patterns or textures and no dark or intense makeup. The key is to make your sequins your only statement piece and have everything else pretty subdued so as not to overwhelm people or look like you’re strolling through town in last night’s outfit. Wear your sequins wherever you are most comfortable…running errands, brunch or lunch with the girls, the office or strolling through a museum. The possibilities are endless!
