Christmas approaches and I feel that after two pretty stark years of COVID and grey loungewear people are going to be literally dipping themselves in a vat of fake tan and rolling in glitter to go out. Myself included! I have things to go too and I am VERY EXCITED!
A few wardrobes I have worked on lately included the odd - "That's my sequin XYZ, you know for Christmas..."
Blazers, skirts and the occasional trouser - many of you might have the emergency festive sequin lying around already so here are some alternative ways to wear them without looking like a you've just escaped from a John Lewis bauble display.
PARTY ON THE TOP FLOOR
A sequin top could not look more chic than with a pair of blue jeans and heels for a daytime Christmas lunch or even Christmas Day itself. Stops it looking try hard and keeps it pretty cool.
My friends husband has a friend who once came to a fancy dress party as his own super hero alter ego - Mr Grant Disco Pants. Great Outfit. The outfit below is not the same as Mr Grants but it is pretty much what I am hoping to achieve at some point over the festive season if I can find trousers that look as good on me as they do in my head.
White Overzised Shirt - Stradivarius - £14.35 - Or steal your husbands like me!
Commando Sequin Leggings - £165
Gold Layered Necklace - £24
Sequin Flared Leggings Zara - £49.99
Monsoon Sequin Joggers - £45 (sale limited sizes)
New Look Black Strappy Heel - £17.99 (public service announcement - New Look do excellent low cost basic courts and strappy sandals in classic shapes, usually in a good selection of colours if your looking for something for a wedding/work last minute)
THE SEQUIN PENCIL
While writing this blog I got a message from a lovely follower asking how to wear a sequin pencil skirt. In fairness I would wear it exactly as above with the crisp white shirt & strappy sandals, or maybe with a tonal jumper, not too oversized and with a loose tuck. However I really like denim and sequins - very unexpected and a little more interesting.
Denim Shirt - £25
Gold Bag - £10
BOOHOO Gold Plus Sequin Skirt - £36 (Comes in Black too)
Black Sequin Pencil H&M - £34.99
SPARKLE SPARKLE SPARKLE
Nothing says I just threw this on for a Christmas party like a glittery blazer. Heres an alternative to the standard cami approach, go khaki! I know a few of you have sequin jackets & blazers already, heres an alternative way to wear them. The ones I have linked are typical of what I have seen in your wardrobes ladies, this one is for you.
Blazer Zara - £59.99
White Tee - Disco Kids - £26
High Waisted Khaki - £18
Black Strappy Heel - £77
M&S - £69.99 (I think we all know what I think of ruched sleeves, enough said).
Wallis Sequin Jacket - £39.99
That is pretty much all I have time for as clearly my attention is devoted to my laptop and thus my house has descended into noise and mayhem!
