Sequins are way too much fun to only do when it's dark. Click through for 13 ways to make them work morning, noon and night.
Formula #1: Slouchy tee shape + boyfriend jeans and western booties
Don't worry about sequins being too fancy for beat up denim and utilitarian footwear. The casual shirt shape keeps the contrast in check.
Formula #2: Aztec print skirt + sheer blouse and matching handbag
The key to wearing such a mismatched combination is accessories that pull the look together. Coordinating your purse should get the job done.
Formula #3: Fitted long sleeve shell + a micro mini, moto boots and front-flap purse
Whereas heels and a clutch would take this look into night club territory, no-nonsense shoes and a roomy bag give it a practical spin.
Formula #4: Striped shift + ankle strap flats
Between the laid-back pattern, comfortable footwear and cute collar detail, this wears just like any other daytime shift—but sparklier!
Formula #5: Sequin-sleeved jacket + jeans and a T-shirt
The concentrated amount of shimmer makes simple pieces feel more special.
Formula #6: Metallic miniskirt + a blouse and longline blazer
Classic, conservative shapes are a key component in making tight, va-va-voom skirts look daylight appropriate.
Formula #7: Maxi skirt + cropped sweater and sneakers
Unlike a regular crop top—which can look very P.M. indeed—a relaxed knit takes this to lazy afternoon territory.
Formula #8: Short sleeve pullover + button-front blouse
When in doubt, try layering! A collar detail makes the look a bit more business-y.
Formula #9: A-line skirt + peasant blouse and chunky necklace
The beauty of this combination is is that you didn't expect it work (but feel free to pretend you knew all along when people compliment you).
Formula #10: Blazer + ripped denim and heels
Since the spangly jacket instantly pulls the look together, this one's the perfect solution for rushed mornings.
Formula #11: T-shirt + jeans and buckle booties
The quilted Chanel is optional, of course, but a nice touch if you have one on hand. Otherwise, any simple black bag will do!
Formula #12: Pencil skirt + graphic sweatshirt
Although clashing motifs can work, the quickest way to a cohesive look is going with one bold color scheme.
Formula #13: High-waisted mini skirt + distressed T-shirt and a pendent necklace
Remember: you want something loose and roomy up to balance out the skirt's snug fit. As for shoes, high top Converse would be perfect!
