How to Wear Sequins

Y’all, if you have been following me for awhile now you know my affinity for sequins is real, one of my first posts on Gal About Town was (and still is to this day) one of my favorite sequin tops (see hereย and styled again here). I basically consider them a neutral in my wardrobe {along with leopard print of course}. However, I totally get it– sparkly, flashy “look at me” sequins can be intimidating to style. So lets dive into my tips on how to wear sequins. Because sequins don’t have to be scary!

Step 1. Find a sequin piece you love! As you can see here I styled this silver sequin tankย (also loving this one)! I would keep it to one key piece. It could also be a fun sequin skirt as well.

Step 2. Pair with a basic staple. Something you are comfortable with, you know is flattering and goes with everything. Here I went with one of my favorite pairs of distressed denim. Because, you just can’t go wrong with your go-to denim. If I were pairing a staple to go with a sequin bottom I would probably pair with my solid cami tank.

Step 3. Accessorize or pop of color! If you want to take it to the next level (which duh, I always am) then add in a fun pop of color or a funky statement piece! I kept my shoes pretty neutral, but added this hot pink clutch.ย I think a pair of fun statement earrings would also be a great addition. Truth be told I had planned on pairing statement earrings with this outfit but was in such a rush changing (FYI when shooting multiple looks I usually change in my car) that I completely forgot.

So if you are a sequin first timer I would suggest these tips to start off with, then the real fun starts when you get into print and texture mixing! I feel like once you get over the initial hump of trying a new style then you start to branch out a bit– that is what is so fun about fashion!

I hope you guys are all having a fab week, if you follow me on Insta or Snapchat I have shared that I have slowly but surely been getting the GAT bachelorette pad in order! Can’t wait to show you guys a final home tour when its finished ๐Ÿ™‚

Also, on Thursday I will be going in for a photo facial at Enlighten MD in Dallas. Have any of you guys ever had one before? I am SO excited– will be sharing my experience and thoughts with you all on that as well!
