Happy Monday everyone! Wishing you all a wonderful week!
Today’s topic is all about SEQUINS. Do you know that the history of sequins can date all the way back to the days of King Tut in ancient Egypt? These shimmering decorative paillettes that are made from vinyl (once made from actual coins) have made garments extra fancy and over-the-top. So, it is not strange that people tend to associate sequins with after-dark parties and NYE celebrations. But, what about the rest of the days?
Inspired by Tibi Spring runway collection 2016, now everyone can wear sequins on casual daytime without looking over-the-top and exaggerated. Here, I have created 6 different styles of wearing sequins for work, weekends, casual outing with BFFs and date night. So it’s time to infuse these little sparkling fashion pieces into your summer wardrobe!
1) Casual Chic.
For the first Sequins OOTD, I have picked a black sequin short to create that casual and chic look. Style it with a simple white tee for that minimal and effortless look. For the accessories, carry a cool envelope clutch with skull and stud details on it. Put on a pair of trendy cat-eye sunglasses if the sun is too glaring. Lastly, slip on a white loafer and you’re done with your casual sequin OOTD! This outfit is perfect to wear it on a lazy weekend without looking like you’re trying too hard.
Tips: If you want to look more polished, throw on a see-through floral bomber jacket to enhance your look!
2) Sweater Weather.
For the second outfit, I have hand-picked this red lips sequined sweater and pair it with a simple pair of skinny jeans. Wear a pair of comfy black strap sandals for that casual and trendy look. Carry a silver sequined clutch to store your essentials in style. Lastly, add on a pair of gray mirrored aviator sunglasses for that ultimately cool look. This outfit is perfect for sweater weather kinda day to keep you cozy and warm. You can also wear this outfit to school and be like one of those cool kids!
For the third OOTD, it is about how to wear sequins to work. While some of you think that sequins are not appropriate to wear at work, think twice, because you can rock that sequin style and still look professional.
For the top, opt for a gold sequin spaghetti strap tank top for that elegant look. Want to look more professional? Tone down the inherent glam factor of sequins with a white blazer and a beige slim-fit OL pants. For the footwear, choose a pointy toe ankle strap heels to look more sophisticated and ladylike. Carry a solid black handbag and put on an edgy pair of sunglasses to complete your smart and professional working attire.
4) Rock Star.
No matter what type of rocker girls you are, you’ll always have few things in common: Leather jacket, ankle boots, ripped shirt and studs.
To create that rocker style with sequins, opt for a skull graphic tank top and wear it underneath a leather jacket. For the bottom, I have picked a gold sequin mini skirt to add that metallic element to the entire outfit. Of course, who would have missed out a pair of leather boots right? For the bag, this studded clutch with a skeleton hand is so cool and edgy. Lastly, wear a leather bracelet to toughen up your look.
If you’re a fashionista, creating a fun, edgy and creative fashion statement is part of your style. For the fifth sequin look, choose this blush pink sequin pencil skirt because it is so glam and edgy. Pair it with a cut-out bralette for that bold and sassy look. To keep your cut-out bralette more modest add a denim jacket on it! For the shoes, opt for a nude color ankle strap heels to match with your outfit color. Carry a stunning pink studded clutch to add some color pop to your outfit. Lastly, put on an edgy cat-eye sunglasses.
6) Party Girl.
Having a major party to attend? Don’t worry I’ve got you covered! We all know that the basic party girl uniform is a cute dress and a nice pair of heels. To create a wild and fun party girl look, opt for a sparkling sequin dress that is not too tight and restricting. It will give you easy movement cuz you probably need to dance whole night! Put on a leather jacket when you show up to a party, it will make you look extra cool and dramatic. For the shoes, opt for a strappy peep-toe high heel. Carry a sassy sequin clutch to carry your essentials in style. Lastly, put on an edgy flat sunglasses to add attitude to your outfit. And now, all you need to do is have fun!
