How to Wear Sequins

Read Carefully

Love ’em or hate ’em – sequins are in, in, in.

Think this style isn’t for you? Here are a few tips on how to wear sequins without looking like a Texas pageant queen. Unless that’s the look you’re going for, which I totally support.

Wear a Sequin Jacket

Sequins are the new leather, you can quote me on that. What is more lady boss than a sparkle jacket?

I got to spend an afternoon with the talented designer Jonathan Simkhai at his flagship store in West Hollywood. This sequin jacket would be great with jeans and heels, over a dress for a night out, or with nothing underneath. It’s $595 and they only have the size 6 and 8 left so I didn’t buy it, but I did get the sequin shorts.

The shorts look great with t-shirts and sneakers, when it cools off here in Southern California I’ll be pairing them with booties and a green velvet blazer. See, you didn’t even know you needed sequin shorts did you? They are sold out on the Jonathan Simkhai site but I found them for you on Neiman Marcus for $345.

And this is what happens when you give me free champagne, not sure what Jonathan’s excuse is.


Wear a Sequin Skirt with a T-shirt


Sequin skirts are everywhere right now. I bought this Valencia and Vine skirt last year and it has NO give. I have to wear Spanx and forgo breathing to wear it.  Luckily many of the skirts on the market today have a little stretch to them, trust me, it matters. Pair a skirt with a casual top, t-shirt, sweatshirt, oversized sweater, yes, we can FORCE sequins to be casual, we have that power now.

Go Full Queen and Buy a Full Length Dress


At Jonathan Simkhai we tried on all sorts of his fabulous clothes. The dress Braunwyn is wearing is sold out but I found it on Rent the Runway for you. RTR is a great way to try styles you aren’t ready to drop a lot of cash on yet. I rented the gold gown in the next photo for an event last spring, I got so many compliments I ended up buying it from Rent the Runway. This is a little secret, they offer the clothes you are renting for purchase at a discount. Sometimes it’s a great deal, sometimes not. I think I paid around $115 for the gold dress, serious deal.

This post isn’t sponsored and I’ve paid for every item of clothing I recommend. If you decide to try Rent the Runway, use my code, you get a discount, I get a discount, we all win.
