Sequins can easily transition from day and night. Aside from a great cocktail in hand, nothing says, “It’s the holidays, and I’m ready to party!” than a bit of glitz and glam. But when you’re heading to the festivities straight from work, how do you stay office-appropriate, yet still let your outfit shine? Here are five ways to wear sequins that will easily make the transition from day to night.
This silver, sequined top from Michael Kors ($90) is surprisingly chic and office-appropriate when paired with dress pants or jeans and a black blazer—and when it’s time to leave work and the jacket comes off, you’ll be just as dazzling as your top.
MZ Wallace’s sequin-striped Ava canvas tote ($185) is the perfect tote for the holiday season: roomy enough to fit all of your work necessities (like an extra pair of shoes for the end of the night!) it has just the right amount of sparkle to be an eye-catcher. Plus, it comes with a small clutch if you want to leave the bag behind and swap it for something lighter, but just as cute.
A new twist on winter’s circle scarf is a touch of shine. This one by Collection XIIX ($34) serves two purposes: actually keeping your neck warm when you run out into the cold during party time, and also sprucing up any outfit. Throw it on with any understated blouse, sweater or dress to add some party pizzazz to your look.
After a day on your feet or running around at work, you don’t always want to strap on a pair of super high heels for cocktails. Luckily, these little shiners from Chinese Laundry ($35) are just as comfy as they are cute. Toss ’em in your bag to give your feet a break at the night’s end, or forget the stilettos altogether and wear these to the party.
This Victoria’s Secret sequined cardigan ($60) is ideal for the winter party months: wear it over a camisole with jeans or dress pants, and you’ll get tons of compliments at work—and at the after-work happy hour. Or, wear what you like to the office and add this on top before heading out in a shimmering look.
