My style: Daytime sparkle

Top: H&M, Cardigan: Orsay, Jeans: Levi's Curve ID, Pumps: Deichmann, Clutch: Asos, Earrings & ring: Six, Bangles: F&F, belt: Dorothy Perkins

Sequins for the day? Count me in! I've always been a fan of daytime sparkle. Sequins can add a fun and glamorous twist to any outfit. However, there are a few rules to follow, it you don't want to end up looking like a Christmas tree. Avoid bright colors and large, uninterrupted sequined surfaces, those are best left for evening. Opt for subtle, neutral or pastel colors, with small sequins dispersed here and there. Pair your sparkling piece with a more classic item, like a great pair of jeans (for a more casual outfit), or a pencil skirt (perfect for a glamorous work & meeting get-up). Don't go overboard with jewelry: avoid sparkling, rhinestone pieces altogether. Right now, art deco jewelry is all the rage, and it will balance out the over-the-top character of sequins.
Have you already tried wearing sequins by day? What is your style strategy when it comes to daytime sparkle?
