How to Wear Sequins During the Day

08lfw-street_14355245219 One of the questions that I get asked the most by my clients is this: “Can you actually wear sequins during the day?”

For a girl like me, this question is ridiculous because I find anytime of the day an appropriate time to wear sequins. Day, night, weekday, weekend … it doesn’t matter. What does matter is how you wear your sequins.

Now I understand that not everyone is like me. So I’ve got answers and lots of them in my new video series, Lauren Messiah: Uninterrupted. I’ve also got loads more advice for you after the video. Yep, I’ve got a lot to say about sequins.

Dress it Down

When wearing sequins during the day, make sure you dress them down with something casual like boyfriend jeans, a military jacket, or a classic white tee. This brings down the intensity of the sequin therefore making it completely appropriate for day.

This rules apply to almost anything you put on your body but especially with sequins – you have to own it! If you look uncomfortable in your sequins, people will think you are crazy for wearing them during the day.



Multiple layers help tone down a sequin. Try showing off a little pop of sequins by having them peeking out from under a sweatshirt or a simple jacket.


Not ready for full on day sequins? Try a bag or a smaller sequined accessory to get your feet wet.

What Not to Wear

There are some sequin pieces that will never make the cut for day; sequin cocktail dresses, gowns, and sequin jumpsuits (yes, they do exist). Those garments will almost always be too dressy for day. Unless you are a sequin master, avoid those pieces before 7pm.
