There is something about wearing sequins that I think just brightens up any day. Sparkles in general I find helps with the darkness of winter, but sequins just add a whole need level of glamour that helps me cope with the cold. I am currently obsessed with dressing down sequins, especially skirts, with chunky jumpers, denim shirts and trainers, I love it when sequins are worn in a nonchalant way, and by pairing sequins down it really does take the piece away from just partywear and makes it just cool daywear.
I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to sequin skirts, I love the idea of pairing a silver sequinned beauty with Benton strips, or a dark beauty with a denim shirt, and I am totally in love with brightly coloured trainers with a classic black sequin pencil skirt.
My formula to keeping it casual is to basically add one casual element, whether that’s a graphic print tee or sweatshirt, a chunky knit, or a cool pair of trainers, and then keep the rest of my look glam – it is as easy as that to have a cool daywear look without looking like you are trying to hard.
Fancy giving it a go? Well I have tracked down a host of sequin beauties on sale that are just perfect, I am lusting over the black sequin and feather pencil from Topshop, was £95 now only £30, and the vibrant figure-hugging sequinned skirt from French Connection with a swishy fishtail hem, was £120 now £48. I can imagine wearing both with a chunky grey marl jumper.
Just hover over each one for the brand and price, and then click through to snap up a bargain. I basically want them all.
