3 ways to wear: sequin dresses

sequin dresses beyonce

Christmas is next Saturday and New Year’s follows faster than falling confetti: Party-time is officially here. So…shouldn’t you be having a great night instead of a minor freak out? Put down the stilettos, everything is going to be okay.

In honor of every woman’s occasional crisis in the middle of her closet, this week’s “3 Ways to Wear” is all about how you’re going to flaunt that glittering dress.

First, we encourage you to go overboard. Sequins and wet-look leggings get you high style-points for glossy drama and mixing textures. Plus, mingling will be so much easier without shivering knees. Metal bangles, sky-high black booties or heels, and a hot clutch are going to guarantee you won’t be missed. As if there were any doubt.

The polar-opposite outfit? Everyday sequins. This girl is totally stealing my heart with how easy she makes it look. Layering a sheer black tank over her dress is genius and the tweedy blazer is winter-weather perfection. For day, flat boots are great, but amping up the glam would be simple with heels and a statement necklace.

Lastly…do I have to explain this one? You’re awesome. Your dress is awesome. Now put it on with your best smile and stop standing in your closet already!

But hey, before you run out that door, you know what to do: It’s also comment contest time around here, so tell us your favorite of the 3 looks if you think you deserve a $25 gift certificate on Monday.

    I love love LOVE the everyday sequin dress outfit! The idea of wearing a little bit of sparkles everyday brightens my day just thinking about it! The just rock it option is a very close second however, great for holiday parties :)

  3. I love the just rock it look.
    Very classic and just enough shine to brighten an outfit (or somebody’s day) :3.

  4. LOVE the Over the Top look, but do not think I could pull it off. Dang!

    • Aw, don’t write it off just yet. You could always tone it down with tights instead of leatherette leggings, but keep all the awesome accessories. After all, how many times do we get to really dress up anyway? Go for it!

  5. just rock it!!!!!!!!

  6. i love the everyday look!

    JUST ROCK IT! Such a hot look for a fun night out and the sequins replace the need for lots of jewelry!

  10. I love the over the top look. I like going all out when I dress up to go out. So why not go over the top.

  11. Love the layering in the everyday look its perfect for winter and has the pop of color from the sequins that make you standout

    The fact that over the top is so very in makes my little shopping-addicted heart flutter. Nothing says “Happy new year!” like a ton of sparkle.

  13. I love how sequins have found their way into everyday outfits. Love the over the top look for a new year’s celebration.

  14. i love the everyday look. its look so chic and cool. and i love purple! i love the cardi and tights combination plus her shoes is super pretty

  15. All of them are fabulous. However, the everyday look is my favorite because my motto is not to “save” anything and just wear it; isn’t that what you bought it for!?

    I love special and unique pieces of clothing and think they should be incorporated into everyday attire. Everyday is important, everyday should be fabulous and you should be too!
