Once the preserve of fancy eveningwear, sequins now feel right for day and night. So - why not add a dose of glamour to your officewear? The trick to getting the look right is to pair your sequins with more casual fabrics and textures. The resulting look is playfully elegant - just like you.
1. Start by mixing two patterns in the same color family - a sleeveless embellished shell with a pencil skirt featuring horizontal stripes. Note how these two patterns work together because of the congruence between colors and pattern repeat size.
2. Add more visual texture with a sequinned collarless jacket. The cream color pairs nicely with the whites of the blouse and the skirt.
3. Accessorize with pops of color - yellow on the clutch and heels, and a beautiful lilac on the retro sunglasses.
