Just because the Holidays are over doesn’t mean your coveted sequined fashion pieces need to be stored away. In fact, now is the best time to invest in sequined tops and dresses as they are most likely on sale.
For a chic way to wear sequins everyday, try pairing a sequined blouse with cuffed denim pants, like Level 99, and casual leather loafers – perfect for work or a lunch date. In general, dressing down “dressier” items is actually much easier than trying to dress-up casual pieces-which often requires lots of accessorizing. Clothing with lots of bling factor often times looks best plain and simple.
Another great outfit is cleverly achieved by layering a sequined dress with a soft cotton or cashmere sweater, like Minnie Rose’s V- Neck Sweater. This outfit is perfect for an evening dinner date, and is always effortlessly chic when paired with suede or soft leather shoes. The secret to successfully pulling this look off is by keeping the colors monochromatic.
Here are some great pieces to achieve the dressed down sequins look:

On first glance, the wide-leg pants may seem too exaggerated; after all, we had just become attached to our skinny pants. Now this!
But if you stop and take a moment, we think you’ll see how refreshing they are. A shot out to the 70′s, mixed with either a crispness, for a more classic look, or a flowing palazzo or relaxed linen for a more casual look.
Keep the skinnies- we think they will be around for a while. But to mix thinks up, try a pair of wide-leg pants. Variety is the spice of life and isn’t that what fashion is all about?
