Three Ways: How to Style a Sequin Skirt

Dec 20, 2018

Sequin skirts are a great special occasion piece because they can be used to create so many outfits.  But there are some basic principles to follow when styling them.  Here are three chic outfits for New Year’s Eve.

All of these outfits follow three simple rules for styling sequin skirts:

  1. Choose a skirt with tightly woven sequins. Scattered sequins tend to look cheap.
  2. The skirt is the star of the show. Simple tops in a single color let it shine.
  3. Accessories should have flair but not overwhelm.

All three outfits harness basic pieces — a silk cami, a button-up bodysuit (no bunching), an off-the-shoulder sweater –the kind of pieces that you might already have in your wardrobe.  But the three outfits have slightly different looks –glamorous, classic, feminine.

Looking for something more casual?  Try a simple v-neck sweater and a pair of classic sneakers.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
