Sequins By Day

Monday, December 10, 2012

A few months ago I saw an image on Pinterest of a gal with a sequin tee over a denim button down. I was completely enamored by it, and I have been dying to recreate it. I have a couple sequin tanks that I usually only wear out to dinner, and I desperately wanted to try wearing sequins during the day. There has been a movement by designers and stylists to incorporated sequins into our daytime looks. I wanted to get on the bandwagon too, so I threw this look together for work yesterday. I love the idea of using a tank in place of a boring sweater vest, this is so much more fashion forward and much more my style (I'm not exactly the sweater vest kinda girl). This was my first attempt at "glitz before six," but I will be playing with this concept more often now. I want to find some sequin shorts to wear over tights.... we'll see how that works.

Sequined tanks really are a multi-tasker! I love how you paired this up with the statement necklace. It's a great way to style it for day!

Great outfit! Love the daytime sparkles. :) And your bright blue mani is the perfect finishing touch!

I already posted on this look once but didn't have time to write much because I was trying to dash out the door to work. This is seriously one of my favorite outfit posts ever! I do wear sequins during the day all the time but usually just try to tone down the glitz with a cardigan sweater. This sequin tank look over a woven shirt is awesome. I will be recreating it in my own version soon.
