Sequins are a seasonal go-to this time of the year for parties, dinners or even work! Believe it or not, sparkles are more versatile than you might think. You can do a crop top à la Rihanna, a party pant like Mary-Kate Olsen, or even a sequined gown like Nimrat Kaur here. So ladies, here’s what to look out for as you cash in on some sparkle!
On the dance floor
Don’t impersonate a disco ball. Keep in mind, when going sparkly, your whole dress is a statement piece and needs to be used carefully. Stick with one color when picking a fully sequined dress(black, gold and silver are are all classically gorgeous), and never forget to make sure that it fits you perfectly. Another thing to pay attention to is to not select an overly trendy silhouette. People are definitely be going to looking at you when your covered in sparkles and the last thing you want is them shielding their eyes.
For those looking to add a little sparkle to their outfits while avoiding the potentially golden girls in Atlantic city-esque look of sequined dresses, wearing a glittery metallic jacket over your LBD is just as stylish.
Feeling a little adventurous? Then pair your sequined dress with a leather jacket and some chunky metallic jewelry to bring out the rebel in you.
Girls day out
Create contrasts. Pairing something glam, like a sequinned jacket, with distressed jeans, is a truly modern way to do sparkle. You could also try pairing you crisp white blouse with a sequinned skirt or shorts!
Light up your office
There’s nothing like a glimmering outfit to catch the eye and put you in a great mood, after a day of back-to-back meetings or stressful assignments. Just be careful to prevent yourself from going overboard. Think subtle yet sparkly! Take notes:-
You can easily dress down a sequin top by wearing it with a bold jacket and some black trousers or jeans if you work in the creative field.
When wearing anything that’s on the sparkly side make sure to balance it with corporate friendly colors like beige, black, grey or even champagne for stricter work environments.
Pair sequined sweaters with traditional office fabrics like wool and tweed. The goal is to keep the silhouettes work friendly and sequins just an accent.
To give the look a bit of retro vibe, stick to darker colors to tone down the sequins and have the rest of the look conservative with a knee length skirt and opaque tights.
Adding a touch of gold glitter to accessories, like a cute leather belt, will give the drab work wears an extra shine.
Remember that less can be more when it comes to sequins. Sure, you want to shine this holiday season, but there are a number of subtle ways to do it. Your LBD will look sassy and smart if you tweak it with some sequinned tights, a sparkly clutch or even those shimmery jimmy choos of yours that you thought you could never use. Shop for a few great sequinned accessories and go ahead and play mix and match and your sure to turn heads when you step out!
