Sequins to work? Sure you can!
I love to experiment when it comes to corporate style by wearing pieces that aren't generally associated as office appropriate. Wearing sequins to the office is one such situation. Many fear wearing sparkles during the day or believe it's too much for work, but this shimmery fabric - if done right - can really make an outfit.
The main trick is to rock sequins in a casual-glam way that looks effortlessly chic. Mix your sequins with something more casual or classic, to offset and balance the glitz. Another tip - especially if trying this look for the first time - stick to the darker hues of a color, such as, navy blue, black, maroon or a deep purple. The darker the color the more subtle the sequins.
The pencil length of this sequins skirt naturally gives it a sophisticated flair and is a great choice for an office look. Though I originally purchased this Forever21 skirt for a dressy event, I decided to add a little pizzazz to my day and wear it to work instead. Why not?
I paired the skirt with a crisp white shirt from ASOS and a Forever21 navy blue turtleneck sweater-vest with the most interesting cut-out side details. For more corporate chicness, I added a white blazer from H&M with white Christian Louboutin pigalle pumps.
I kept the accessories at a minimum with my Hermes watch, Tiffany & Co bracelet, diamond rings and one of my favorite pieces, a delicate evil-eye necklace.
The final touch necessary to pull together your corporate style and truly make it work appropriate is your bag. I love Coach's assortments. The styles are clean, classic, contemporary and a great price point. It's a classic brand with a solid reputation and a great choice for work. This Coach double zip bag has multiple compartments, is a great size and the neutral blue color works with everything. I even took a break from the office, as you saw in the video above, to visit the store. I'm on the hunt for a new classic black work bag.
