3 Easy Ways to Wear Sequins During the Day

Sequins! Formerly the domain of showgirls and 20-something's looking to rock their New Year's Eve, these embellishments have shown up on the runways for spring and fall reworked in a subtle way to add shimmer to an outfit any time of day. In fact, they’re so wearable I put them on no fewer than six of my shirts from my spring Kelly by Clinton Kelly collection for QVC. Don't think you can pull off sequins during the day? Check out these three outfits that show just what to do.

Clinton Kelly Sequins for Work

1. All Business

Power suit, meet power sequins: A blazer, dark denim or navy pants and a patterned blouse with a subtle shimmer of sequins is a chic and unexpected look for the office. Last step? Add a killer heel and this look takes you from the office to the evening. Go get ‘em, girl.

Clinton Kelly Brunch Sequins

2. Best of the Brunch

A sequined skirt has a lot of style oomph, so if you’re keeping it casual and wearing it to brunch with the girls, you’ve got to dress it down with super-casual accessories. Stay away from other shimmery or silky materials and opt for a button-front and sweater, slouch bag and slip-on sneakers. Black Sequined Skirt (for similar), $99.50, lordandtaylor.com. Digi Leopard Slip-On Sneakers, $55, vans.com.

Beach Club Sequins

3. Going to da Club

The beach club, that is—paired with crisp white pants, a denim jacket and flats or skimmers, a sequined shirt is just as appropriate for a casual summer stroll as it is for running errands.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
