In the new fashion-era of mix-and-match and anything (almost) goes, sequins have hit the high street making their way into daytime dressing.

So how can the over 40 woman wear one of this summer’s most dazzling fashion trends without looking like a Studio 54 disco ball? The secret to pulling off the daytime sequin look is about effortless basics in classic styles. A chic and classic silhouette including elegant tops, classic-style blazers and jackets, skirts and pants are the key to pulling off the daytime sequin look – AND beware too much dazzle! A sprinkling of sequins is the ageless way to go.

Don’t be shy. Add some razzle dazzle to your summer wardrobe, here’s how:

A CLASSIC SILHOUETTE

Avoid trend-driven looks that belong on a twenty-something. A classic silhouette is key in pulling off sequins over 40.

THE KISS RULE

The KISS rule is so important when wearing sequins by day. Over-sparkling will catapult you into Tina Sparkle territory. Limit sequins to one piece during the day.

NO TRENDS
Leave trend-inspired ensembles to the 20-somethings and opt for classic cuts and silhouettes instead.

TOO TIGHT, TOO REVEALING, TOO MUCH!
When it comes to sequins by day, leave the skin-baring to Cher. Also avoid anything super-tight at all costs.

 

EVENING SPARKLE
Effortless, classic silhouettes in tonal colours is the best option. Avoid fussy styles and keep accessories simple and classic.
