6 Cute Ways to Wear a Sequin Skirt This Season

Every holiday season the shiny, sparkly clothing sings its siren call to my glitter-loving soul. Alas, every year I have passed it by because I couldn’t think of more than one or two ways to wear something with sequins and I require a little more versatility from the pieces in my closet.

Last year, however, I caved. I found a black and gold sequin skirt on clearance and I snapped it up before my inner grown-up could raise her disapproving eyebrow. I wore it one time with a black blouse and, predictably, couldn’t figure out how else I might wear it. I hid it away in the back of my closet, ashamed that I had bought something so darned inflexible.

This year, I am determined to make my sequin skirt work for me. I plowed through the depths of my closet and forced myself to get creative. I finally ended up with 6 outfits that I’m happy with and can work for a variety of occasions. Here’s how I’ll be wearing my sequin skirt this season!

    Pairing metallic polka dots with sequins is a whole lot of shine- perfect for upcoming holiday parties! I added a thick black belt to fake an hourglass silhouette.

    My sister gave me these gold and teal peacock motif bangles for my birthday this year and they inspired me to pair this hi-lo chiffon top with my skirt. If you pair a flowy top with an eye-catching skirt, make sure to go for leg-lengthening nude heels so they don't compete!
