Holiday Style: Sequin Pants Dressed Down

Sequin1A while back I declared a fashion fixation for sequin track pants. Well, I never did find a pair–yet! But recently I did find some sequin legging pants. I gasped and then jumped when I saw this silver pair in the window of an HM in Shanghai. I went skipping in and nabbed a pair straight away. I really didn’t even have to try them on; I was sold. Now, I know that sequin pants–legging pants at that, may seem like a far cry for many, but I think there are various ways of dressing this shimmery goodness down. I’ve deomonstrated how in two differentways: first with a white tee and a black blazer/cape OR second with a white fisherman sweater and black scarf. With something as fancy as these pants, you don’t really need much flare on top. Alternatively, a denim shirt could work or even a black sweatshirt. Basically, just let the pants do all the work!

    • Thanks Monika! I’ll let you know how it goes…I’m thinking my oversized grey cashmere sweater that’s more of a sweatshirt than sweater. We’ll see. So happy to be getting to know you! Love, Ann

  • Thank you Belle! What a perfect compliment! I definitely try because I love getting dressed so very much! These retro glasses were a last minute add-on to an ASOS order. I was like, Hey! Wait!! Those glasses are super cheap but super chic. In they went!
