3 Chic Ways to Get the Most Out of a Sequin Skirt
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.
