There are few things that scream 'party' as succinctly as sequins. Whether you're choosing a sequin pencil skirt, sequined accessories, or an allover sequin dress, you'll be ready for any fun fete. But watch out - a fully sequined item may prove not as versatile as other items in your closet, so you need to choose carefully. Enter the sequin jacket - an extremely wearable third piece that can fulfill a plethora of party needs, and not just at the holidays. Feel free to integrate one into your holiday party repertoire, and then enjoy it again and again for festive occasions throughout the year.
If you're entertaining at home on New Year's Eve, you’ll want an outfit that's appropriately jubilant, but allows you to keep up with your hostess duties. Take a cue from Micah Gianneli and throw a detailed sequin jacket over sedate black separates. Standout earrings and embellished heels keep your look party-ready, even if it gets a little too hot in the kitchen for the extra layer.
Spring is the time to pull out your flirty frocks - but sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate. So add a little drama to your outfit with inspiration from Wendy’s Lookbook. A dark sequin blazer over a pale neutral dress provides contrast (and covers your shoulders), and equally shiny accessories ensure you’re set for anything from a late March birthday celebration to an early June wedding.
A girls’ night out/casual bridal shower is the ideal time to dress down your sequin jacket. Sydne Style pairs silver sequins with jeans – so follow her lead with a simple white t, jeans and your favorite strappy nude heels. Then throw in a little more metallic, just for fun.
A black-tie optional invitation doesn’t necessarily mean you need to shop for a full-length gown. A standby little black dress will do, but kick it up a notch just like Pop of Style. Start with your trusty sequin jacket, then add earrings with some black tie flair and heels that shout “I’m ready to dance!”
