How to turn your sequins from night to day wear


Usually I would keep glitzy clothing such as sequins for evening wear, but with a little daring and some attention to balancing the rest of the outfit, one can stylishly  do sequins during the day!

1. Keep the sequins to one area – A  full sequin dress may be too much for  day wear, but a  sequin top or some sequins on the trousers will add some fun without making a show.

2. For your day wear, team your sequins with denim jeans – this will instantly make it  day time appropriate.

3. For your day wear choose  loose sequins item – Very tight sequins items like tight shirt or body hugging bottom are distinct evening wear. So  for your daytime sequin item choose a loose, more relaxed piece.

4. For your day outfit choose flat shoes. You can keep your high heals in your bag and put them on after work,for a more elegant evening touch.

5. Layer it up for day wear – allow you sequin piece to just peak from underneath a jacket,  a shirt or a big scarf.

I  show the evening look first and thereafter the more casual, day look:

For day wear  -Instead of leather trousers, try black jeans ; instead of high heels, try flat  shoes; instead of  an elegant jacket, try a jeans jacket and toned down accessories

    • Thank you Cortney.. I fell in love with this top the moment I saw it. It is glitzy on one hand but the big number in the front comes from the world of sports and makes it more casual. I think it is a fun combination and certainly very modern. Thanks for commenting. Sara
