Sequin Skirts After the Holidays

sequin skirts
Sequin skirts. Yes, I do love them. And it so happened that I scored a few great gold sequin skirts after the holidays. I know! Bad timing. So, I have been on a mission to figure out how to wear my gold sequin skirts after the festivities of Christmas and New Years. I took note from a pro, Shana Draugelis of The Mom Edit. (You guys, when I found Shana’s blog, the style crush on this insanely chic woman happened fast and furious. I seriously get excited when there’s a new post up.) She posted this totally styling post with the same sequin skirt: at that point I felt determined to rock a sequin skirt. Ironically I picked this skirt up thinking, Oh this will totally work for copying Shana’s look. When I went back to her post, I realized I had actually picked up the exact same skirt! Stoked? Totally. (I hope she doesn’t mind my score and the copy cat!) I know this skirt is super short, so I tried to make up for it with a longer sweater. I figured the fisherman, knobby sweater along with the jean jacket added some casualness to the over-the-top glam of the skirt. I remembered Shana’s struggle with solid black tights, so I went with sheer nylons which I think brings out a bit of the color of my legs making the whole ensemble kind of match. Regardless, the fam was out and about all day on Sunday, and I felt great! I didn’t feel over dressed; rather I felt like I had a little perk to my step since I was sporting a totally sparkly sequin skirt–in February–for absolutely no other reason than I can!

If you too must have a sequin skirt, I feel ya!

Trust me: I know what it feels like to get fixated. I have fashion fixations ALL. THE. TIME. After I saw Shana’s post I felt completely obsessed to also rock a sequin skirt. So now I have two! I thought i would take one of them back, but then….why? They are very different in color tone and their design. You’ll see…I’m not finished wearing sequin skirts after the holiday.With that, here are some great options for you!
