If ever we needed a touch of sparkle to brighten up the dull winter days it’s this year. Usually we’d be planning our Christmas party outfits about now. Even though they’re not be happening, it doesn’t mean we can’t still break out the sequins and glitter. Ok, so you might not want to wear them to do the grocery shopping, but if you’re still going in to the office then why not work a touch of sparkle into your outfit?
You can tone down a sequin pencil skirt by pairing it with a simple jumper or shirt. On the other hand, you can go big as I’ve done and add ruffles, frills and a pussy bow! I was needing some colour therapy and this blouse certainly did the trick. I loved this style so much that I also bought it in bright blue, which I featured in this post last year. The only problem is that it’s sheer all over, so I really need a nude vest underneath. I also had a wardrobe malfunction due to a button coming off. I did my best to hide the gaping with the bow because I didn’t have time to repair it as the light was fading. I’m just glad it didn’t happen while I was out!
I bought this skirt on eBay a few years ago but haven’t got around to wearing it. The floral pattern is quite unusual for a sequin skirt; it’s just begging to be paired with bright green, although a lighter shade of pink would work well too. I didn’t want to add a third colour as there’s already a lot going on with the sequins and frills, so I chose my green velvet bag. The boots are a close colour match for the skirt and are comfortable too. If I had a vest underneath the blouse I would definitely wear this outfit for work. In fact, a green silky camisole under it could double as top for a quick day to night outfit transformation, complete with heels in place of the boots. I’m already thinking ahead to next year!
