How to Wear Sequins During the Day

December 12th, 2008

Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

A sequined top is great for going out at night - for cocktail parties, or for a festive dinner out.  But why not get some extra mileage out of it?  Worn with the right pieces, you can pull off the sequins-during-the-day look.  Simply juxtapose it against more tailored pieces, and play down the glam factor with more casual clothes.  Here’s how to wear sequins during the day:

1. Start with your basic sequined top.  The simpler the shape of the top, the more versatile it is.
2. Add casual pieces: a pair of jeans and a brightly colored hoodie.  The orange hoodie brings out the warmth in the gold sequined top.
3. Bring on the tailoring with a structured jacket and oxford shoes.  The boxy tweed top and the lace-up booties elevate the casual jeans and hoodie.

    Eee! I just landed a gorgeous black sequined tank for $6 thrifting. I wore it with a black angora cardi, steel blue cropped cargos, and black leather granny boots. Worked perfectly for office wear.

    Wow, $6? That’s a great deal, Sal! Your outfit sounds very chic as well.

    Even a woman over 40 with a bigger clothing budget can pull off your look. I took your idea & wore my St John Feather blue sequined boxy top with my white jeans & black oxfords & black cashmere hoodie for a holiday dinner yesterday.

    This works so well for long days working around the city. It bridges the gap between fashionable and comfortable – that is really hard to do. Love it!
