How To Wear Sequins In Summer And Winter -- Without Being Cher

Don’t worry: sequin skirts – summer’s most fun party piece – can be worn well into fall and even winter (with a little clever styling, that is). So don’t put yours in storage: keep in the closet, throw on some opaque tights and swap your sandals for booties and you are good-to-go through winter.


Pretty young things Jessica Stroup, Whitney Port and Miley Cyrus show how to wear the sequin trend to all those summer parties (hint: it involves a basic white tan, strappy heels and not much else).

All you really need is a basic white tank – the sequin skirt does all the work. You will love this super soft, crisp Splendid white cotton-modal u-neck tank ($26.10, down from $42).

This Haute Hippie Sequin miniskirt ($295) is the perfect sequin skirt to invest in if you don’t already have one. The playful mini style is flirty and youthful.

You will love the elastic straps on these Stuart Weitzman “Exy” Stretch Pumps ($182.50, down from $365); the sleek shoe is (almost) as comfy as flats.


Stars like Jessica Szohr and Nicky Hilton know that sequined shorts and skirts are totally wearable for fall and winter under black leggings and with fitted blazers and leather jackets on top.

Balance out the girly sparkles with a leather jacket; the floppy collar of this BB Dakota Cartersville Leather jacket ($238) is especially cool.

Save $90 on this majorly discounted Literature Noir black sequin ‘Gia’ mini skirt ($101.70, down from $188).

Don’t forget the tights or you will freeze; we think Black Denier Opaque tights ($12) are your best shot.

Nothing says fall fashion like a black suede bootie; this ruched pair are especially cool. Grab these Me Too ‘Labella’ booties ($109.95) and wear them with skinny jeans, work pants and everything in between.
