Finding ways to wear sequins during the day can be tricky, but rest assured it can be done! While sequins might seem more at home on a night club dance floor, you can make your sequin clothes do double duty during the day as well. The key to making sequins work during the day is to pare them down with basics and to stick to relaxed and flattering cuts. Take a look at these ways to wear sequins, as seen on the streets.
One of the best ways to wear sequins during the day is to keep the rest of your look fairly simple. This outfit snapped by street style photographer Lee Oliveira on the streets of Sydney is a great example of a breezy, summertime outfit. The sequin crop top teamed with a high waisted maxi skirt and strappy sandals makes for a relaxed look and the woven bag completes the beachy, summery feel of the outfit.
Blogger Mara from M Loves M teams a blue sequin skirt with a loose grey t-shirt, slouchy biker jacket, and ankle strap pumps. The look is dressed down enough for the day but can also transition into the night. For a more casual look you could try swapping the biker jacket for a loose boyfriend cardigan or denim jacket.
When the temperature drops, try mixing up your sequin separates with lots of layers. Jenny from Neon Blush wears her silver sequin skirt with a slouchy blouse, denim vest, ribbed beanie, and ankle boots. The loose layers and slouchy handbag also balance out the fitted design of the mini skirt and make the entire look more daytime appropriate.
Jamie Rae was snapped by Refinery 29 wearing a loose sequin t-shirt and a black sheer maxi skirt. This stylish sequinned look could easily do double duty as daytime and night time attire. Style it with an oversized handbag and flats for an easy daytime look or dress it up at night with an embellished clutch, bejewelled shoes, and some statement earrings.
We spotted this summery sequin look over on Fabsugar. The frilled sequin skirt teamed with a slouchy white tank top is a mix of feminine and casual styling. The bright blue bag adds an extra pop of colour while the T-bar pumps add another feminine element to this girlie outfit.
Here, Kristina from Kayture rocks a pair of sequin pants during the day. The black sequins, however, aren’t too over the top so the pants work as daytime attire. She teams her sequin pants with a metallic gold top, red blazer, matching red heels, and a structured handbag.
Add some glitz and glamour to a basic outfit of jeans and a t-shirt by throwing on a sequin blazer. Zina from Fashion Vibe works a rock chic inspired look by teaming her sequin blazer and skinny jean combo with zippered ankle boots and aviator sunglasses.
If you prefer subtler sequins then stick to accents and accessories. Blogger Veronica from Bittersweet Colours wears a cut out blouse with embellished sequin shoulders. She teams her blouse with relaxed-fit jeans, neutral strappy heels, and a circle side bag. This is a great example of how you can add a little bit of sparkle to your everyday outfit.
Shiona was snapped by Phil Oh wearing a patterned sequin top with high waisted trousers. The fun multicoloured pattern on the top stands out against the cream sequin backdrop, and it works well with the blue wide-leg trousers. A colourful bag, oversized sunglasses and a metallic bracelet complete this tailored look.
These are just a few different examples of how to style your sequins, as seen on the streets. What do you think about wearing sequins during the day? Which of these street style looks do you like best?
