There’s no better time to bust out the sequins than during the holiday season, and best believe our most showstopping threads have been out in full force since December 1. They’re a given for office parties and your BFF’s annual holiday fête, but they don’t exactly scream daytime essential. Well, we’re about to change all that. Be it a glitzy holiday dress or a swishy midi skirt like the one below, sequins, much like metallics, DO have a place in your daytime lineup. It’s just a matter of knowing how to style them. This week’s Style Resolutions is giving you the lowdown on how to effortlessly pull it off, bringing you three creative ways to rock a shimmery midi skirt anytime, anywhere.
HOW TO STYLE A SEQUIN SKIRT FOR WORK
Glamorous AF probably isn’t how you’d describe your nine-to-five style — until now. Hit refresh on tired workweek attire and go full-on It girl with a sequin midi skirt and carefully curated layers. Tuck in a classic button-down for an immediate punch of polish, then weave in a hint of color and a touch of texture with a v-neck sweater. On the accessories front, take the contemporary route, opting for architectural pearl earrings, a clean-cut top-handle bag and streamlined ankle boots. Even on the most snooze-inducing days, your outfit will shine bright.

HOW TO STYLE A SEQUIN SKIRT FOR A NIGHT OUT
Make sequins your signature for your weekly GNO, ushering your after-dark style into Instababe territory with a shimmery midi skirt and dramatic velvet bodysuit (swoon). Dial up the drama with a faux fur jacket, laser-cut steppers and an embellished box clutch that gives off serious fancy-lady vibes. Don’t be surprised if your getup results in a few double takes.

HOW TO STYLE A SEQUIN SKIRT FOR THE WEEKEND
We love a good sartorial challenge, and dressing down a swanky skirt is just that. To make the fanciful piece feel daytime-ready, team it with your most laid-back essentials (think: a statement sweatshirt, patchwork kicks and a knit beanie). With a longline coat and sleek crossbody bag on hand, the getup takes on a wear-anywhere tone, so you can transition from day to night — no costume changed needed.
