How to Wear Sequins During the Day

April 15th, 2010

Sequins used to be creatures of the night, but they’re increasingly accepted for daytime wear.  If you decide to sequin up your daytime look, you have two options: (1) go glam and essentially wear cocktail type attire during the daytime, or (2) mix your sequins into more utilitarian pieces for a sophisticated daytime look.  We put together a springy outfit that shows you how to do the latter:

1.  Start with a sequinned tank top, and pair it with a pair of casual trousers.  We like how the pleats and the slightly rolled cuffs bring these trousers down to earth.
2.  Add another touch of utilitywear to this outfit with the jacket of the moment - a close fitting denim jacket.
3.  Finish off the look with a set of accessories that mash up feminine and utility - a pair of fetching t-strap heels in aqua and a sturdy holdall bag.

    I can’t imagine those pants looking good on anyone except MAYBE a professional model. Tapered AND pleated? Not in the real world.

    I love the top portion of this outfit the sequins and jean jacket are classic! The color palate here is great for spring/summer. However, I want to reiterate Ruby’s sentiments on the pants.

    Agreed that the pants aren’t for everyone. You can easily switch these out for a regular pair of trousers.
