Can you wear sequins during the day?  Yes, you can!  Sequins are a great way to dress up casual clothes - and they work surprisingly well with daywear.  We paired a sequinned top with everyday basics, and topped it off with a brightly colored cardigan for an extra kick.  Here’s how to wear sequins during the day:

1. Start with the most basic of foundations: the plain white button down shirt and the straight leg, dark rinse jeans.
2. Upon that classic foundation, slip on a sequinned tank top for a mix that’s thoroughly modern.
3. For an extra kick, add a brightly colored sweater to the mix.  The sequinned tank hugs the white button-down, and it peeks out from under the statement sweater.
4. Finish off the look with an embellished clutch bag (note how the shine on the bag echoes the glimmer of the sequins) and a pair of tall boots (yes, tuck your jeans in).

How would you wear sequins during the day?

    I love that outfit! I have a sequin jacket that is in a very casual style, so I will probably wear it to my daytime work holiday party with dark jeans and some sort of black shirt. Now I’m inspired to jazz it up a little though.

    Also, I can’t believe I like something that Mischa Barton is involved with. Sigh.
