GET YOUR SPARKLE ON
6 Effortlessly Chic Ways to Wear Sequins Every Day
Brace yourselves. You're about to start seeing sequins all over your timeline. As soon as Fashion Month ended, celebrities started giving the Spring 2018 trend a try.
I'm talking about the same dazzling embellishments that are always a red-carpet winner. But now, sequins are starting to pop up in street-style looks, too. Fashion girls are taking note from the Spring shows and giving their sequin designs a casual makeover that actually looks amazing even when the sun is out.
From ultra chic camis to all-over shine minis, there's no reason you can't glam up your day, every day, with a little statement-making sequins. The main rule to follow is to keep it minimal and chic. It's all about mixing in laid-back essentials. Your go-to basics—like button-down shirts, jeans, and flats—are key to pulling off the daytime sequin look.
1. THe T-Shirt & Jeans Combo
Who said baseball tees are just for the park? Wear a baseball sequin T-Shirt with light-wash denim and make this your weekend uniform now. This is the way to do sequins for everyday wear. I would pair this outfit with my leather cross-body bag. I love how the leather adds a second texture to the outfit, removing some of the focus from the sequin sleeves.
2. edgy glamour
When all you need is a sequin jacket to add some sparkle to your outfit... Black jeans and a white T-shirt never looked so good! If you're feeling it for the office, a sequin blazer always looks glamorous; wear it with a crisp white shirt, elegant trousers and my 'I mean business' tote, and you're ready to shine in the boardroom.
3. Day to Night
If you didn't think you could wear sequins for work, think again. This crisp white blouse with a chic sequined skirt is a perfect pairing. Plus add a clutch and this outfit can easily translate into the perfect date-night or post-work drinks look.
5. Jogging in style
Team a pair of sequin trousers with a slogan T-shirt and trainers for a very relaxed take on the trend with our midi ruched tote. Or why not go preppy chic like Jenna Lyons and wear your sequin joggers with a boatneck stripy tee and heels? Either way, it's a knockout everyday pairing!
6. All or nothing
And then there are those days, when you just need to go a little crazy... Go ahead, throw all the rules out of the window and go all out. That's when this head-to-toe sequin number should come out of the closet. Keep your accessories to a minimum and let the sparkle take centre stage!
the fine print
DO: Choose one statement piece to carry your look. Pairing something uber-glam, like a sequined jacket, with something totally casual, like distressed jeans, is an effortless and modern way to do sequins in a chic way.
DON'T: Get carried away with the glam factor. The easiest way to look like a 9-year-old Texas beauty queen is to wear your hair in a heavily-shellacked 'do, pile on the sparkly eyeshadow, and accessorize with a metallic clutch and shoes. There is nothing subtle about body glitter. Resist the urge to bedazzle with abandon and trust me, you'll be effortlessly chic.
