OOTD - Working out the Sequins - Sequin Skirt and Peplum Top !

Thursday 28 February 2013

Hey everyone!
The Msdressy International Giveaway is now over and the winner would be announced this weekend.

Today's outfit post is from my college's Alumni Meet which was organized last weekend.

This sequin skirt was a love at first sight for me when I saw it at the Facebook store - Precious Melove.
I wanted to wear it for the alumni meet which was more of a semi-formal event- catching up with batchmates, professors and friends. So, I decided to dress down the skirt by pairing it with a subtle top.
This Forever 21 peplum style top made the skirt look sober yet very graceful and then I had my ZARA heels to add just the right amount of colour to the whole look.

If you love sequins but are confused how to wear a sequined item for a day event or a more formal event without going overboard, you can try the following tricks 
  • For a formal event wear a pair of sequined pants or skirt with a neutral top to balance out the shine. Finish the look with a great pair of shoes and statement clutch.
  • For a party look, you can wear your sequined skirt or pants with a tank top or casual tee. Add a chunky necklace if you want to have a bold look.
  • If sequined skirts or pants are just too bold for you, you can also go for sequined tops which are much easier to pair. Wear your sequined top with leather pants or jeans for a more chic look.
  • If you are a fan of blazers, pair a sequin cardigan with jeans and a button-down shirt. This look works best for day and night both, just by adding the right pair of shoes.
  • If too much sequins are just not your thing, simply add a pair of sequined heels, a shiny bag or a belt to add a dash of bling to your look!

I currently have two pairs of sequined trousers, a sequined top and a sequined skirt which you'll see more of in the upcoming posts.
