If you’ve been window shopping (yeah right!) in recent weeks, you’d notice that most of the mannequins have been decked in gorgeous, shimmery sequin pieces. Now, if you were to wear sequins during any other time of the year, you’d probably get told off for being over the top but come Christmas, they morph into a pieces of art and class. If you’re worried about ending up too tacky or trashy with sequins, perhaps you need a little help in rocking them up!
Don’t dress in top to toe sequins, you’ll literally stop traffic and have everyone cursing while they’re at it. Steer clear from the disco ball look and only wear one sequined outfit at a time like a skirt or top but never both together.
Since you’re all glittery already, go slow on the accessories. Hit the parties with a simple textured clutch or neckpiece.
Sequins come in different hues in colors so don’t just pick on colors that are typically metallic such as gold or silver. Try brighter colors like ruby red, emerald green or blue to give your outfit that extra pop but make sure the non sequin pieces are in matte dark colors. Alternatively you can try pairing them with shirts or jeans to acheive the perfect blend of glam and low-key.
So now that you know how celebrities wear them, here’s our take on getting everyday looks with the sequin piece this holiday season!
We took a glittery glamorous gold dress and paired them with equally striking suede red shoes and clutch along with a gold detachable collar to add a hint of cheekiness to the look. We highly recommend wearing this look with red lips!
This cute and preppy look can take you from work to play by adding a cardigan to it. Brogues which have been popular all of the past year continues to remain popular among vintage lovers. Though black is a plain color, the sequins will create more depth to the outfit.
Take a light colored shimmery top and pair it with wide legged pants, heels and a scarf to channel a serious yet casual look that will turn heads. Always be careful with color and pattern of the sequins as that will make or break your piece.
Of all the sequin outfits, dresses are the least versatile compared to tops and skirts because you can’t wear them frequently as everyone remembers one that they see. You don’t want to get caught wearing the same piece twice and there’s no guarantee if you’ll fit into it the following year. Remember that accessories are the fastest and most affordable way to change your entire outfit so yes, you can still wear your spring and summer pieces if you pair them with the right accessories!
