Yes, we don’t care what anyone else says, you can wear that sequin-embellished dress, top, skirt or jacket during the day. And it’s a lot easier than you would imagine.
The Essentials team loves bling. Nothing is more feminine than a sparkly dress in a room full of drab winter wear. But you don’t have to save your sequins for a night out — sequins can (and should) be an everyday joy!
Keep it simple, silly
There is really no need to overdo anything else if you are wearing sequins during the day; let them speak for themselves. So keep the design of your get up very simple, and if at all possible, ditch all other accessories. You sparkle enough; in this case, less is definitely more!
Mix and match
Tone down the formal aspect of a sequined skirt with an unexpected simple tee. The contrast is just right for the day time, and this light reflecting embellishment is not so in your face when worn this way.
One at a time
This is probably the golden rule for wearing sequins: one sparkly item at a time. This is of the utmost importance. As the great Coco Chanel once said “before you leave your house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory”. Use this quote as your building block for wearing sequins during the day, and you will look amazing every time.
Introduce an accessory
So if we still haven’t convinced you to try this look yet, then why not start small? Try a small sequence accessory like a bedazzled bag or a sequined necklace. You don’t have to fully commit to this trend to try it out, so go on, dip your toe in!
Try unexpected colours
Why not look for different and interesting colours to try this trend in? Sequins tend to look less OTT when they’re not in gold or silver. Not that there’s anything wrong with OTT, but if you’re trying to tone down your look, try sequins in unexpected colours!
