Daytime Sequins Are Back
Sometimes, we just want our wardrobe to shine. Right? And this time of year – whether we’re staying in and doing holiday Zoom calls or we can gather for a small family get-together – sequins and sparkle is always the best way to do it.
But do we really have to save our sparkle for evening events and special occasions? We say no way!
Why only pull your fave sparkling looks out once a year for a special event? Why not wear it just as you would any other fashion piece you love?
Here – we’re taking a quick look at our top tips for styling your sparkle and sequins for EVERYDAY.
Team It with Knitwear
Perhaps our all-time fave way to style sequins and sparkle in a more casual way is to pair it with your chunkiest knitwear or sweatshirts. This look adds instant day vibes to the sequinned item and allows it to shine without looking OTT.
This kind of look works for anything from the office to a casual lunch with the girls. And can be dressed up or down with any combination of sneakers, boots or heels. Did you realize sequins could be so versatile?
We’d create this look with a sequinned midi skirt to start.
This Alice + Olivia skirt is PERFECTION and is currently on sale with 75% off!!!
Pair it with either a chunky knit roll neck…
Or a simple varsity style sweatshirt in an oversized fit.
You can then layer with a blazer or a teddy coat for the colder months. Love.
…Or Opt for Sparkle Knitwear
Instead of pairing a full sequin piece with some knitwear, just choose knitwear with some sparkle instead!
Any of these cute sequin knits could be paired with simple jeans or leather pants for the perfect everyday look this season.
Choose Basics (But Not)
If you imagine all sequin and sparkle to be OTT statement items, think again. Another great way to incorporate some sparkle into your everyday wardrobe is to choose basics (or foundation items). This could be anything from a simple black rollneck or classic fitted bodysuit to a straight-forward tee.
We LOVE this turtleneck from Area. And the open back gives it a little extra something for this time of year.
And this Commendo bodysuit is perfection.
This sequin tee from Urban Outfitters would pair with anything in your closet.
Switch Out Your Satin Cami
We’ve been obsessed with easy little satin camisoles this year. Whether we’re pairing it with jeans, leather pants, a plaid mini skirt or anything else in our closets, a satin cami has been the saving item that works for the office, girl’s night, brunch and everything in-between.
So, why not try switching this basic fashion must-have out for a sequin version? You can wear it with anything from your tailoring to your fave skinnies and it always looks good. Plus, it’s the sneak peek of sequins you’ve been lusting after!
Style A Mini Casually
Thought that sequin mini dress you saw for New Year’s Eve could only be styled one way? Think again! We love wearing super dressy pieces in unexpected ways and the sequin mini dress is the perfect example of this. You might only imagine wearing it with strappy sandals for a big night out but actually, it might look extra chic styled casually.
Opt for a simple sequin mini slip dress. We love this Reformation one with a sultry front slit or this Alice + Olivia in stunning silver.
Then layer it with either a simple white or black t-shirt or a fitted rollneck to create a more casual look instantly. Also add tights or stockings to show a little less skin, this will make you feel less dressy straight away!
Next, choose an oversized blazer to throw over the whole look. Make sure it covers the hemline of the dress for a super modern look and choose a wide shoulder pad for extra structure. This oversized double-breasted blazer from H&M creates the look without breaking the bank!
Finally, just add your fave casual footwear. Anything from chunky black boots to classic hi-top Converse works perfectly for this look.
Go for a Sequin Accessory
Lastly, the easiest way to inject some sequinned love into your daytime look is with an accessory. Go for a statement clutch, scarf or boots or even switch up your regular pair of leggings with a sequin pair instead!
Give your sequins and sparkle new life this season and style them up for every day. Whether you’re pairing a midi with a chunky knit or adding a statement sequin clutch to an all-denim vibe, there’s no reason to hide away your shimmer for once a year. Get it out and ENJOY!
