Working in Sequins

Tired of basic black and white work wear? Looking to add flair to otherwise ordinary ensembles? We at First Class Fashionista think of everyday as a day to let yourself shine. Sequins and sparkles aren’t just reserved for the evening, working in pieces with your daytime looks can really make your outfit pop!

Sequins for Work

This season’s fashion forecast displayed a strong emphasis on all things glam. Were talking metallic threaded fabrics, beaded blouses and elaborate gemstone necklaces. For a work-friendly ensemble look for pieces that can jazz up your basics. Pair a sequin adorned top with a collar, and a tailored skirt. The crisp collared top will keep the look professional, while the sequins add a hint of fun.

If you prefer to where the sequins on the lower half, make sure you look for a cut that is work appropriate. Skirts at their shortest should hit just above the knee, and embellished pants should be tailored and straight.

We adore the silver sequin pencil skirt from Banana Republic. The lady like cut and neutral color make it a great piece for pairing with everything from soft sweaters to chambray shirts. We’d love to hear how you work in sequins, share a comment below or tweet us at @FCFashionista!
