How To style: Sequins

When we think sequins, we think a lot of things; sparkles, shiny, bold, gaudy, too much, not enough of it!

Sequins seem to be the ongoing attire for new year parties and dinners and everything in between, but after that clock strikes 12, you know you will never wear your sparkly sweater or golden pants again. But, I’m here to show you sequins can be worn throughout the year, from casual parties to date night, and it doesn’t always have to look garish and overwhelming. So, here are 5 outfits:


Sequins don’t have to completely cover a garment and catch too much attention. Here is an understated pair of scallop edge shorts with dull sliver sequin detailing. It is very easy on the eye, but still adds that oomph to your look. I’ve added an emerald green crop top to add some colour. Add a bomber to give an edgy look, or if its a little chilly, and complete the look with thigh-high boots and a gold watch.



Sequins pieces in dark colours are always unexpected and add a touch of glamour to any look. To let the skirt be the star of the show, I’ve kept it casual with a loosely tucked striped tee, an adorable bow clutch and cool silver earrings.



This is quite a classy and glam look, even with a pair of sequin pants! Black sequins are very pretty and eye-catching, but not too crazy, so it works well in many occasions. Here, I’ve paired it with a flowy pale pink top that ties at the waist to give it more definition. Add a gold statement necklace, cute, simple box clutch/purse and camel shoes. To keep things a little different and casual, I’ve added a denim jacket, but feel free to take things a little formal with a trench coat or blazer.



This is more of a party look, but again, you aren’t drowning in sparkles. Pair a simple sequined crop top, like the one here, with a clean white pencil skirt, automatically making the look classier. Add a flowy long shrug, and keep the shoes simple, possibly monochrome.



This is a gorgeous sequin dress, with a really unique pattern and a halter neck. Find a dress like this one where sequins aren’t only the main component, find a dress with an interesting pattern, texture or even length, so there’s more to it than just shine. Give it some edge with a motorcycle jacket and grey suede boots. Add some slim gold and silver bangles for arm candy and seal the deal with a bright, popping lipstick shade.
