Here is a post I have been planning for months now. I have this sequined one shoulder dress, which was a birthday gift from me to myself; and trust me when I say this even after planning to wear it a zillion times I have worn it only thrice so far. Sigh! Poor pretty favorite dress. So I thought of ways to make it daytime friendly and post a few failed attempts I found a cool enough formula.
I added my freshly bought superstar sneakers and my beloved white boyfriend blazer to this striped, hot sequin dress and I was sunshine ready. Of course I cannot go run errands in this but when I am feeling ‘blah’ and need to RSVP to any fancy daytime event, this is an instant pick me up. What I love about this dress is its one shoulder detail and its quarter length sleeve, and obviously those sexy stripes.
Not to forget, I gained some of the confidence to do this post from the fact that sequin numbers are big on the fashion radar now, be it runways or street style; it’s all about doing sequin outfits the subtle way for a day look.
So next time you pull out a sequined number from the store racks and think twice, because when you think sequin you are reminded of flashy disco balls and party twinkles; just know that it’s very day wear appropriate when dressed down the right away. Just remember to keep the rest of your look neutral and in similar shades to pull the look together, including your makeup, like my mocha lips here and the monochrome add ons.
Now, go get your sparkle on girls and celebrate yourself.
