How to Wear It: Daytime Sparkle

  • Sharebar

Donning sparkle in the summer months is a no-brainer. With hot summer sun reflecting off shimmering metallics, pulling on a sequined bikini or shimmery sundress for an après-beach meal is an easy style solution. But bringing the sequins and shine into daytime for the cooler months can be a bit of a challenge.  These lovely ladies hit all the right notes for adding sparkle to the transitional months of early Fall.

The underlying rule to keep in mind is juxtaposition. Wearing a glittery sequined skirt? Opt for a plain white tee shirt and simple nude pumps. We adore this look from blogger babe Brooklyn Blonde, who paired a swingy gold dirndl skirt with a white tee, nude pumps and a bold bangle. Work in a chilly office environment? Fret not – when the A/C chill sets in, simply throw on a long blazer with gold buttons in a rich hue (think hunter green, black or burgundy) to keep the continuity, and  you’ll guaranteed to outshine the competition. Love that retro magenta lip, too!

Do you own a full-force sequined top that has pushed itself to the back of your closet, neglected because of your new weekend preference for cozying up with a movie on a Saturday night over painting the town? Pull that statement piece out, dust it off and rock it with confidence midday! Take a cue from Karla and pull on your favorite pair of jeans. We love her fitted pair, but a dark pair of bootleg jeans would look equally fabulous. Done and done.

We adore how Liz took a short sequined skirt that you would typically keep confined to a nightclub and reworked it into the perfect ensemble for a transitional fall day. Adding a chunky cardigan, button-down blouse, lace-up booties and an oversized camel clutch is a perfect way to layer up while still letting the sparkle stand out.

Not up for a full-on sparkle session on your body? Get the same effect with a sequin clutch, à la Miss Pouty. Accessories are a perfect way for the shy gals to inject a dash of glitter into their daytime ensemble. Love how she paired a pastel-hued shift with neutral booties, allowing the sequins to really shine.

Adding glitter to typically conservative items reserved for the corporate world is a perfect way to add glimmer to your day without pushing the boundaries of taste too far. Meredith looks phenomenal in a sequined blazer, kept casual with distressed denim, colorful heels and a patterned clutch. Don’t be scared to mix other textures with sequins — the more, the merrier! Just keep the color family united, and you’ll look prime for the lunch crowd. Albeit a bit sparklier.
