Sparkling and shiny sequins aren’t limited for nighttime anymore as it’s absolutely trendy and fashion-forward to add some glam to your daytime street looks too. Whether you’re aiming for a dramatic statement or a little sparkle to your street looks, keep on reading for our 4 easy tricks to wear daytime sparkles.
- Start with sequin accessories to glam up your casual street looks.
Wearing sparkles on daytime may be daunting at first, so start incorporating the glittery shine on your accessories such as clutch, shoes, handbag, or belt that will look balanced and neat. However, need to pair your shiny accessory with something opposite from it to keep your looks daytime-appropriate. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, dress up your denim jacket and hot pink skirt with a sequin clutch to make your outfit party-ready yet daytime-appropriate. Also, spicing up your monochromatic outfit with a sequin clutch will keep it interesting and modern rather than dull and boring.
- Team your sparkling ensembles with neutral pieces.
Teaming you sequin ensembles with flashy pieces will only make you look over the top. Unless you want to blind someone, team your sequined ensembles with subdued shades, preferably neutrals to keep it tamed. However, if your job position is in a conservative field, leave your sparkles at home as looking festive at work can jeopardize your professionalism. Instead, add some shine to your office outfits with gold or silver metal jewelry that looks elegant and decent at the same time.
- Dress down your sequins with denim items.
Wearing sparkles is a wonderful way to add interest and texture to your casual denim outfits. However beware of wearing your sequined pieces, especially on your problem areas as it will only bring attention to it, therefore making it look bigger. Instead, make use of a sparkly garment to balance out your body shape and make prominent body parts look less noticeable. For instance, if you have wide hips and thighs, a sequin top can make them look smaller by visually widening your top while your denim shorts make your bottom-part balanced.
- Juxtapose your sparkling sequins with casual, non-dressy pieces.
Sequins and shimmer are more suitable juxtaposed with casual, tomboyish, or rugged pieces. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, you may think of teaming your sequin top with a pair of slouchy pants to keep everything balanced, making your outfit ideal for a daytime look. If you’re aiming for a chic yet not-so-dressy look, be inspired by fashion blogger Blair Eadie’s style of wearing her Breton striped tee with a metallic silver sequin skirt that made her casual-chic style unexpected and trendy.
By heeding our style advice on wearing your daytime sparkles, you’ll create a fashion-forward, trendy, and exceptional look in no time.
