Sequins-Not Just for Holiday!

Like if this guide is helpful

We all know sequin pieces are fabulous for holiday parties, but it's a total misconception that you have to save them for special occasions. Sequins can actually be worn year round, both day and night. It can be appropriate for a ton of different settings, from a casual day date to a dinner with friends--it all comes down to the styling. Since it's been a favourite of mine for years, I decided to show you guys some of my favourite ways that I've worn it over the years:

This iridescent  sequin dress could easily be worn on its own if you're on your way to a party, but throwing on a  leather jacket and  statement necklace creates a whole new look. The added edge makes it a great option for a night out with friends rather than your typical ritzy affair.

One of my absolute favourite ways to wear sequins is by pairing it with distressed denim. The juxtaposition of the two vibes results in an instantly stylish look. Anyone can throw on some basic black trousers, but unexpected pairings automatically take your outfit to the next level. Here, I'm wearing a  sequin blazer with boyfriend jeans and heels, a perfect look to transition you from day to night. You could easily swap out the heels for flats or even trainers to add a bit more personality and to stay comfy.

Believe it or not, sequins can even be work appropriate, especially during winter. I made this  peplum party top a bit more conservative by wearing it with a  tweed jacket and black trousers. When I wear all black, I try to remember to mix textures to keep things interesting.

Last but not least, sequin trousers! I know these might seem like they're only for the bold among us, but for the record, my 60+ year old mum borrowed these from me and wore them to a concert recently! If she can do it, so can you. These silver  sequin leggings are one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe, and I actually think they work for both day and night.  Here I've paired them with a nice black top and big earrings, but you can dress them down as well by wearing them with a white tee. Sticking to a solid colour is your best bet here; sparkly trousers definitely are enough of a statement on their own! 
Next time you spot that gorgeous sequin piece, don't talk yourself out of buying it just because you think you won't have anywhere to wear it!  No excuses ;)
