Tips on How to Wear a Sequin Skirt
As you can tell from each of Carrie’s look, many things can go with a sequin skirt (even things you don’t think initially would work together). And I bet you have several of these items already in your closet.
To help guide you as you style up your sequin skirt this season, below are a few tips to keep in mind.
1. Keep your jewelry to a minimum
Because a sequin skirt is a “louder” piece and it sparkles and shines all on its own, you really don’t need to go overboard with your jewelry. Simple pieces like thin gold bracelets and necklaces or one statement piece, such as earrings, work great. There’s no need to overdo it with the jewels because you want your skirt to do most of the talking.
2. Don’t shy away from color
While sequins are rather bold, it doesn’t mean you should steer clear of color. In fact, as evidenced above, color works beautifully with sequins. Find complementing tones, whether it’s in the form of a graphic tee or a sweater. Neutrals, of course, work, but colors are even more fun.
3. Steer clear of sequins on top
Again, because a sequin skirt is a bold piece, think about what you’re going to wear on top. We’re not into rules when it comes to fashion, but one thing we do think you should stay away from, in this instance, is a sequin top. Because a sequin top with a sequin skirt is just, well, a lot of sequins. Too many sequins.
4. Think in terms of juxtaposition
As I mentioned the other day, the juxtaposition of glitzy sequins with utilitarian camo is such a great look. In general, we’re big fans of contrasts in fashion. And, again, it might not be something you initially think of when you’re getting ready, but when you put it on, you’ll be pleasantly surprised just how great it all comes together.
5. Have fun with it
Sequins are, by far, one of the most fun things you can wear. It’s not a stuffy look nor should it be taken too seriously. Have fun with your outfit and don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone.
