Sequin tops have successfully transitioned from eveningwear to day wear in such a bold manner that I confess I am a serious fan of this trend. I simply can not resist the whimsical flair that a sequin top can add to basic separates from skirt to trousers to suits. Reach for a sequin top if you want to ramp up a day look. A feeling of fun and confidence wearing a sequin top brings will naturally overtake any other feelings you encounter throughout the day. I confess I often reach for a sequin top in a neutral color if I am having a morning where nothing I put on seems to work. Sequin tops in neutral colors are a recommended wardrobe staple for this reason. They match well with so many other garments in a broad range of colors.
It is amazing how readily sequin tops can make a conservative outfit such as a cardigan and skirt or a blazer and trousers look more chic. A sequin shell or camisole peeking from a belted cardigan is elegant and entrancing when worn with a skirt. Pair a sequin top with a suit for a chic daytime look. You will receive plenty of compliments throughout the day if you remember this rule of thumb:
- Silver-sequined tops in cool colors such as silver and pale blue pair well with gray and navy.
- Gold-sequined tops match favorably with warm or jewel-tone colors.
- Sequined tops in nude or neutral colors have the most flexibility when mixing and matching.
