Everyone knows sequins are the quintessential party detail that makes you sparkle and shine. They were all the rage during the #stylechat discussion on holiday outfits (and if you noticed I totally vouched for sequined pants, though I have yet to find the perfect pair). What’s more challenging is integrating sequins in your day-to-day, especially workday, wardrobe. As much as I love fall in New England, the shorter, colder, overcast days are a drab. Enter sequins – your remedy for lack of sunshine. Here’s a roundup of my favorite pieces that you can wear to work or a party, although there’s one rule: don’t pair sequins with sequins. Unless you’re going for the whole disco ball look (I don’t judge!).
You can’t go wrong with stripes and sequins (remember that blog?), which makes this sweater a staple from November – March. Pair it with pants, a pleated skirt, or even shorts and tights. Thanks to the collar and structured style, you can wear anything with this sweater and still look put together.
Wearing glitter pumps can be tricky let alone wearing them to work. But there is a hack. Make sure the rest of your outfit is monochrome (white on white or black on black or white and black) to balance the shoes.
I love how simultaneously simple yet stunning this scarf is. Don’t expect it to keep you warm, it serves a purely sartorial purpose.
If you’re still hesitant about donning sequins, get it in black. I love this blazer because it doubles as a going out jacket for, say, a strapless jumpsuit that you want to wear to a holiday party. Yet it can still look professional during the day with a delicate blouse and slim pants.
Wear your coziest sweater with this skirt and give a whole new meaning to sweater weather style.
Sure this top may look too busy upon first glance (and second, and third), but if you pair it with, say, a long camel coat, and black skinny jeans, you’ll almost mistake the sequins for a neutral. Let’s make sequins the new neutral, shall we?
