Surprise Sparkle

We've talked before about how to wear sequins during the day. The key is pairing the sparkle with something utilitarian and absolutely casual - like denim or chambray - or both! A dressy sequin top looks infinitely more laid back tossed on over a chambray shirt and blue jeans. I like to pop on a blazer to create an additional layer that mutes the sequins. Chunky boots instead of heels also help edge this outfit from dressy to dressed-down; I think a pair of Converse would also do the job! 

Do you wear sequins during the day? How to you keep them casual?
