How to Wear Sequins After the Holidays

I'm a firm believer in wearing as much of your closet as possible - if you buy something to only wear once or twice, it's hardly worth the cost, right?

So of course, I don't believe in letting your sparkly sequin pieces from the holiday season gather dust until next December. With the right layers and accessories, sequin pieces can be dressed down for everyday. Check out these three ways to do it:

The Skirt

Gray sweater, sequin skirt, black combat boots

Products: Sweater, Skirt, Boots, Bag, Hat, Tights, Necklace

Pair your favorite sequin mini skirt with a comfy gray-and-black sweater, plus a pair of black fleece tights and comfortable black combat boots. Add a little metallic edge with a studded beanie and triangle pendant, then complete the outfit with a bright pink crossbody bag.

The Pants

Chambray shirt, sequin pants, white sneakers

Products: Shirt, Pants, Sneakers, Bag, Glasses, Earrings

This is the perfect way to incorporate your sequined pants into a casual springtime look. Try them with a chambray shirt and simple white sneakers. Add some fun and flair with eclectic accessories, like bright yellow studs, a bucket bag, and retro-inspired glasses.

The Dress

Sequin dress, green cardigan, ankle boots

Products: Dress, Cardigan, Boots, Scarf, Belt, Ring

Want to make your sequin dress appropriate for class or a casual date? Layer a forest green cardigan over the dress and tie it with a skinny leather belt. Add classic brown booties, plus a plaid scarf for a warm, wintery touch. Keep your jewelry simple with just a geometric gold ring.
