A Guide to All Things Sequins

If there’s one thing I enjoy wearing, it’s embellishments. Tassels, fringe, beading, and sequins are not only fun to wear, but they are also interesting and add eye-catching texture to an outfit.

Let’s talk about sequins, specifically. The shiny beads (yes, they’re technically beads!) embody fabulousness and elegance. That doesn’t mean that they have to be worn only for dressy or formal occasions. They can also elevate a casual outfit and be worn during the daytime like they’re being worn here:

Sequins work for any and all clothing pieces including shoes, bags, and accessories. The key to shopping sequins is to find silhouettes, designs, fabrics, and colorways that are fashion-forward and where the beads are high-quality (the color doesn’t rub off and they don’t bend or break easily). Otherwise, the piece could end up looking dated or cheap.

Although sequins can seem like they are novelty pieces to wear, they are actually pretty versatile. They pair well with most pieces you may already have in your closet. For example, a sequin skirt easily works with a basic t-shirt or a silk top while a sequin dress would look great with a strappy sandals.

When building your outfit, use the sequin item as your centerpiece and then construct the look around that. For example, when I put together this outfit, I started with the pant (one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe!) and then decided on the top and shoes from there.
