When it comes to styling the sequin trend, less is always more! If you have worn an outfit with sequins, you don’t need even one other sparkle–from the pairing outfits to the bags, shoes, and jewelry.

For instance, if you’re wearing a sequin dress for an evening party, avoid adding more sparkly necklaces, earrings, bracelets, or a purse. Instead of more bling, go for muted accessories to allow your sequin dress to do the talking.

On the other hand, if your dress or outfit is plain, add sparkle by carrying a sequined clutch or handbag.

Unless you’re a celebrity attenting the Met Gala, please note that ONE piece with sequins is enough!

3. Accessorize Subtly to Look Classy

Apart from limiting the amount of spakles to add to a sequined look, also limit the number and sizes of your accessories.

Opt for small and dainty accessories to ensure your look is not cumbersome–instead of loop earrings, wear studs for instance. Also, bring along fewer accessories-you don’t need to carry your whole drawer because just some pearl studs and a clutch will do.

If you’re more inclined towards a statement accessory, look no further than a sequined accessory. A stylish sequin bag, for instance, can help really elevate your look.

5. Wear Sleek Yet Neutral Shoes

When wearing sequins, you want to go for basic shoes that are neutral with no sequins, beads, pearls, or statement details to avoid looking too busy from head to toe.

They don’t have to be neutral in color–think black or white–because you can still wear a bolder color like red or metallic color like silver or gold. Just ensure it is not heavily detailed but instead, looks clean and sleek.

    Sequins are perfect for evening wear! Wear them to a party or any high-event and stand out. However, when it comes to wearing sequins during the day, some women might be skeptical.

    To help you look and feel comfortable and confident in sequins during the day, aim to look more subtle and effortless in your look.

    This can be achieved by choosing sequin pieces that aren’t overly structured or loud. They should be easygoing and not necessarily stand out.

    Pair your sequin with fabrics like cotton for a simple yet stunning look. Leather can be worn to add an edge to your overall outfit, as well.
