A Classic Take on Sequins

If you need a few tips on being the life of the party, you can start by either taking a semester abroad at charm school or learning how to nail wearing sequins, because as it turns out, this discotheque-y shimmer can be quite technical. When executed properly, heads will turn as a sequin ensemble can become a conversational piece. When done haphazardly however, well…let’s just say heads will still turn but not in a complimentary way.


It can be easy to get carried away when it comes to sequins, which is why one must style with restraint. An understated classic like the Donna button down tucked into a neutral and solid colored sequin skirt is a good example of this. Veer away from bright colors when styling with sequins as the material is shiny and loud enough on its own. A matte leather clutch and neutral closed toe heels are the perfect accessories to complete this look.


If you’re bold enough to introduce sequins into the daylight, wear it sparingly. Hold off on the black sequin cocktail dress until the evening and instead, pair a gold or nude sequined cami under the Katherine Blazer and Beverly Cropped Pants. If you choose to exercise your sequin as a handbag, keep it at a clutch size. Sequins do not belong on totes - ever. Lightly layer your favorite jewelry. Less is more in this case as the sequin is the hero piece whenever it’s worn. Turns out, all that glitters is gold after all.
