I hope you like my How to Style column so far! Please feel free to comment below what you think or what you would like to see in this section of my blog so that I can style fashion pieces that you would love to see! Today I am going to showing you how you can style a sequin skirt for a casual dressed down look. Yes, that’s right, I did say casual dress down look! I am sure that many people would not think to pair sparkly sequin skirt with an oversized cosy jumper. However, that is what I’ve done and I think you will find that you may just love this look as much as I do.
I wanted to create an everyday dress down look from an item of clothing that is not considered in either of those two categories. I think these two items styled together really compliment each other well and adds an edge to what could be either a normal old day look or a high glamour look that you are unable to wear when going to the shops.
How do I style a sequin skirt?
This question could be answered in a few different ways. It all depends on the occasion. Most people would pair a skirt like this with a slinky little black top and some heels – and away you go on a night out with the girls. This is not the way I will be styling this skirt. As you may have realised by now I just adore glamorous outfits. It’s extremely rare for you not to see me in a pair of heels and a sophisticated dress. Today I wanted to combine both glamours with comfort. So I created this exact look.
I fell in love with this skirt the moment I laid my eyes on it. What more could a girl want? Sequins and class all mixed together and out pops this skirt. I found this skirt at Dorothy Perkins store in their winter sale just after Christmas. As something that would be seen as aChristmass/new years fashion piece, I wanted to still be able to wear in all throughout the year.
What better way to make this outfit more than just the one-hit wonder by adding this gorgeous deep blue sweater! This is one of my favourite buys of 2015. It’s really warm and looks extremely luxurious but at 10th the price of a luxury brand. Paired with the skirt and my thin navy belt from Oasis really makes the outfit go together nicely. I wore this outfit with these navy blue chunky sole shoes from Zara and my black Juicy Couture handbag.
What else could I style this skirt with?
If I wanted to style this skirt conventionally, I would put this skirt with a black mesh bodysuit which would add a hint of sexiness to your outfit. To finish the outfit I would pair with plain black court heels. You don’t want anything too fancy as you don’t want to overcrowd the outfit.
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Would you wear a sequin skirt with platform shoes?
