How to Dress Down Sequins

How to dress down sequins: Talking about five ways to dress down sequins so that they aren't just for New Years Eve or a trip to Las Vegas.

If you think sequins are just for New Years Eve or a trip to Las Vegas, then today’s post is for you because I’m sharing tips for how to dress down sequins. I always see so many fun pieces with sequins on them & I personally don’t think they should be limited to just a few rare occasions.

How to Dress Down Sequins

Below I’m sharing my five tips to help you with how to dress down sequins. I thought this gold skirt from Parker NY would be the perfect piece to use to show you a few of the different options below combined!

Add denim

Denim is such an easy way to dress down any outfit. Whether you throw a denim jacket on your shoulders or around your waist with a dress, or throw on distressed denim or cutoff shorts with a top or a blazer, it’s an easy staple to add in that will keep your sequin outfit casual.

Throw your hair up

Throwing your hair up in a bun or ponytail is such an easy way to make a look more effortless. It’s also amazing because you won’t have to wash & dry your hair again. Anything that doesn’t require fully doing your hair (see my hair tutorial for how I usually do mine) is a win in my opinion! Even letting my hair air dry & be wavy would have kept this look more casual. How your hair is styled can totally transform the entire look of your outfit. A messy bun or half-up bun would also be a great way to keep a sequin outfit on the casual side.

Wear sneakers

Sneakers have to be the easiest way to dress down a look. I went with solid black sneakers, but white is always a cute option, too. I will note that I don’t think wearing sequins is the time to wear your statement sneaker. Keep it simple.

Pair them with a t-shirt

A great way to dress down anything is with a t-shirt. While I often love to dress up my t-shirts, when paired with sequins they are serving a different purpose. With sequin pieces, such as a skirt or a blazer, a solid or graphic t-shirt will help dress it down. You can also wear your t-shirt UNDER a sequin dress to make it more casual. I love the layered trend that we’ve been seeing with a simple t-shirt under a dress or cami to not only add depth to the look, but to make it casual-cool.

Keep your accessories limited

A bold statement earring or necklace will add to any sequin look, which is not the point here. Keep your jewelry simple when you are styling a look to be more casual. I went with my every day, layered, dainty jewelry here. The sequins are the bling for your look, so choose something a little more understated.

The big key for how to dress down sequins is to combine a few of the five ways above. If you’re wearing sneakers with your look, add in another component such as a t-shirt or a denim jacket. Switching these up will keep your look fresh, but will ensure that it isn’t too much. Sequins are so fun and such a statement piece that they shouldn’t be limited to just one or two times a year. Honestly, you could combine all five of these tips to make it work for some looks! Start simple with a sequin accessory or a t-shirt with a sequin embellishment & go from there. There are so many fun options right now so I’ve rounded up my favorites for you below!

    I love how a denim jacket just adds a casual touch to pretty much anything. This dress is super cute on its own but I love how you gave it a ‘day’ vibe with the jacket. Great styling!
