New Year’s Eve Sequins You’ll Actually Want to Wear Again

Who doesn’t like a little glam on New Year’s Eve? The problem many have when shopping for this occasion is finding the balance between festive and wearable. When purchasing clothes, it’s important to be able to incorporate the item into your wardrobe for more than one use. Everyone wants to wear sequins for New Year’s Eve, but will you want to wear it any of the 364 other days of the year? The following six garments can serve as inspiration as you put together your first outfit of 2018.

This Bomber Jacket from Anthropologie is great. We like the subtle blue and green colors, there’s going to be a lot of black, white and gold sequins out there on December 31st, it’s nice to have something that’s a little different. The sequins on this ASOS Black Mini Dress is refreshingly matte which is what makes it easier to wear again than some of the more shimmering options.

For a low key party we love this Free People sweater with subtle sequin detailing on the sleeves. It’s probably the piece on this list that is the most easily incorporated into an everyday look. The Marc Jacobs blouse on the right is a classic sequin top. It can be mixed and matched with almost anything. It’s easily dressed up or down depending on what you wear it with.

The Top Shop Star Sequin Bralet is a really fun addition to any wardrobe. It has some strong modern Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby vibes. It’s not something you’ll want to wear every day, but perfect for adding a little whimsy when you’re in the mood. And lastly, we have an understated ML Monique Lhullier floral dress. If you’re interested in adding a little ‘edge’ to it, we suggest pairing it with a chic leather jacket.

Hopefully, this inspiration was useful to you with some more subtle takes on the sequin trend. And truthfully, if you want to wear bright sequins every day, go for it! At the end of the day, your style is your own and beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
