January 2012 Lookbook: Militant Sequins

January 2012 Lookbook: Militant Sequins
This look is part of Omiru’s January 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece January 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

I’ll admit it - I adore sequins.  They’re traditionally a nighttime look, but the past few seasons have brought sequins unashamedly out into daywear.  How do you best get the sequinned look during the day?  Easy.  Juxtapose it against a masculine piece - rugged in fabric or silhouette - so that the look isn’t too prim & proper. 

1. Start with a drapey sequinned dress, worn over thin leggings for a big-over-small look.
2. Mix in a rugged piece - like this military inspired parka in army green.
3. Ground the look with a pair of solid heels (don’t you love the zipper detail on these faux Givenchy booties?).  I finished off the look with a pop of color with this oversized apple red bowler bag.

How do you wear sequins during the day?
