If there is ever an appropriate time to wear sequins, this is it. “This” being the last days of the year. While it does not take a whole lot of convincing to get me to put on a little something sparkling, I do realize that sequins may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Or better yet, fabric of choice. The holidays, however, are an exception. If you have never given sequins a go, now is your time to shine. Literally! Yes, they can be tacky. Yes, they can be mistaken for a walking disco ball. And yes, you may draw some extra attention to your stellar dance moves. But let’s face it: sequins and the festive season go together like Kim and Kanye.
Having said that, knowing how to style a sequin skirt (or any sequin piece for that matter) makes it a lot easier to feel comfortable in a glittery look. For me personally, there are 3 rules on how to style sequins that I live by.
3 Tips On How To Style a Sequin Skirt:
Balance: For every fancy sequin piece, try to add something slightly more casual than expected to the mix. I decided to balance out the skirt with a fringed knit. It is not something you would usually wear with a dressy skirt and heels, but it instantly adds balance (and comfort) to the look.
Cover Up: Generally speaking, I am not one to show much skin, so this is a given most of the time. When wearing sequins, however, I purposely cover up. Sequins scream “hey look at me” enough as it is – no need for extra attention with a super short skirt or an accidental nip slip due to a revealing top.
The Palette: I feel like muted colors always add elegance and sophistication. First, I tried this exact look with red velvet mules (I blame Santa Clause…) but the ensemble felt too forced. With the sleeker, but just as festive heels (hello pretty bow!), the outfit instantly looked much more elegant and in chime.
