How To Dress Down Sequins For Everyday Wear

How To Style Sequins For Every Day Wear - Thrifting Diva

I love wearing sequins.   To me, you can and should absolutely wear them beyond the countless holiday soirees and New Year’s Eve shindigs.  Truth be told, a little extra sparkle is just what is needed to combat those dreaded January blues?

I know that most of you reading this may not believe sequins is something that you could wear everyday simply because sequins echoes party styling.  However, they’re also great to spice up your everyday look.  If you’re thinking that sequins are too flashy for your comfort, keep on reading to get some tricks on dressing down your sequins for everyday wear.

The biggest advice to wearing sequins for everyday wear is do not go overboard.  Unless you want to blind someone, don’t go crazy with wearing sequin on your top, your skirt, your shoes and your bag.  Instead, wear sequins with basic or casual everyday wear with no embellishments.  A knitted sweater, basic tee, pencil skirt, jeans, tank top and such work well from day to night.  Just remember to keep the rest of your look plain and let the sequins take the attention.  Keep everything else pretty low-key and simple. This means no big or statement accessories either.

Now I personally think a great place to find fabulous sequin pieces are thrift and vintage shops.  I own my fair share of sequin pieces, and all but one has come from a second hand store.  This black and silver beauty came from Goodwill in San Diego for $12!  A statement piece for $12 – please tell me how you can beat that?  Thrift stores are your friends people, and you are missing out if you have not started giving them a shot.

As I wanted to dress down my sequins, I paired it with these faux leather joggers that I got from Buffalo Exchange for $8.  Buffalo Exchange is a consignment store across the country.  I actually got this pair in Las Vegas while on vacation.  Yes, trust me, I thrift everywhere.  You never know the gems you are going to find when you are not in your own neighborhood.

Taking my own advice, I opted for simple black patent leather pumps from Heels.com marked down from $85 to $19.  While I am not a fan of their retail prices, I have to say that their sales prices are absolutely on point.  Finally I completed the look with a leather clutch that was thrifted from Georgia Avenue Thrift in Washington, D.C. for $7.
