I recently wore this look in Dubai and it immediate got me thinking about how to wear sequins after the holidays. Since a new year is the time to make bold choices, one myth we need to dispel right away is that certain pieces can only be worn during certain times of the year. If you get creative, you can reimagine almost any piece for any season.
For example… I used to think that the holidays were the only time of year that you can be flashy, but the new year has inspired me to have more fun by taking more risks! It’s so sad to think about all these amazing, festive pieces just sitting idly in my closet until the “right time” comes back around. 2019 is all about stepping out of your comfort zone and letting yourself (literally) shine!
So, let’s talks sequins.

My overarching advice is to keep the rest of your outfit a little more understated. Too many colors, patterns, and textures can become overwhelming. Plus, you want to create a clean backdrop to let your sequined piece to really stand out! Sequins also blend in with the rest of the outfit really nicely when the outfit is all one color. Here are a few of my favorite outfit combos:
Sequin Skirt + Sweater
A sequined skirt with a cozy, oversized sweater is such a cute winter look! I love the way the difference in textures balance one another out.
Sequin + Basic Tee
Yes, even that fabulous sequin jacket you thought you might never wear again – try it with a plain white tee underneath. The reverse also works – counterbalance the glamour of sequin pants, skirt, or blazer with an ultra-casual graphic tee. The combo evokes an edgy rockstar image and can be dressed further up or down depending on your choice of shoes!
Blazer + Sequin
The opposite combination of a blazer with a sequin dress, top, or romper is one of my favorites. Wearing a sequin piece with a neutral colored blazer and shoes keeps the whole look classy, but also lets some pizzazz shine through.
Denim + Sequin
I think denim is the perfect match for anything sequined! Some distressed jeans with a sparkly top or jacket is a perfect day or night look, and a New Year’s Eve mini dress can be transformed with just a simple denim jacket on top!
Don’t pack away those New Years outfits! Start experimenting and keep on shining!
