Tips & Tricks: How to dress down sequins

With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s time to dust off those sparkly pieces (or buy some new ones!). Of course, an all-out sequin outfit can be fun to wear to a party, but sometimes you might want to lay low a bit and make your look more suitable for daytime. Therefore, I rounded up a couple of tips & tricks to dress those glitters down.

Pick only one sparkly item at a time
Make sure to pick just one item that stands out, and keep the rest of your outfit clean. How awesome are these pink booties with the suit in the picture above?

Pair sequins with a heavy fabric like wool
Woolen fabrics have the tendency to look cozy and comfortable, which is like the complete opposite of (most) sequined items. It creates an interesting contrast and dresses down your look instantly, without making it less interesting.

Avoid mixing different colors
Different colors in combination with sequins can easily become too much. You don’t want people to hurt their eyes when looking at you 😉 Especially if you choose to wear multiple sparkly items, try to keep them in the same color (-scheme).

Keep your accessory game to a minimum
Sequins are usually loud enough as they are, so you probably don’t need much extra bling. I’d recommend keeping your accessories to a minimum, go for dainty jewelry instead of statement pieces.

Add a sporty vibe
I think it can be really cool to mix items that have kind of a sporty vibe with sequins. Try wearing your sequined trousers with a pair of trainers for example, or wear them with a sporty sweater. Succes guaranteed!

  1. The shoes on the photo are so awesome! I don’t really wear sequins, because I think most of the items don’t suit me.
