We all know how to wear sequins at night, but transforming pieces that we bought for special occasions into chic outfits to wear during the day can be tricky. And who can resist the temptation to recycle her party wear into something, well, more wearable? The trick is to keep it simple and not go overboard with your styling. We've got a few tricks up our sleeves that will make you a pro at picking out those seldom worn, but much loved, sparklers from your closet to pair with other daytime pieces.
If you've got one sequin piece, it's likely a flirty top such as this. For work, put it under your smartest pants or skirt suit. It will look chic under a denim jacket or paired with a cardigan and pencil skirt, too.

We loved this gray top. If you've got gray sequins you've got something that's just asking to be put with faded blue denim, and thus toned down for daytime.

A tunic like this could be just the thing to add a punch to an otherwise drab look. Tights, yes. Flats or Chelsea boots, definitely. Put your favorite slouchy gray sweatshirt on top for added warmth and mix-master style. Your fur vest will do in a pinch too.

Sequin shift dresses are perfect for belting purposes. Adding a worn-in leather belt to the mix will tone it down and add high-low cool appeal.

Have a sequin piece like this that's a real showstopper? Put it with your leather jacket or boyfriend blazer, add brushed silver and gold accessories, tights and your casual shoe of choice.

A bright colored mini is no reason to keep it for nighttime excursions. Take a cue from the styling in this photo and wear it with a neutral top to tone it down. A gray or tan slouchy tee with flats or kitten heels is the perfect thing for a brunch date.

Pretty in Pink Pencil
A sequin pencil skirt wants to be worn in winter time with riding boots and chunky-knit sweaters. Trust us. Button-up shirts are definitely an alternative choice, too.
$399 at J.Crew.
Shine On Leggings
Favorite soft or vintage tee, preferably one that's visibly worn in, plus Chuck Taylor's, plus your everyday jewelry, topped with a jacket, coat and/or cardigan. Done.

This romper is adorable, day or night. We can see it with bedroom slipper flats with a long cardigan over top, belted at the waist with your favorite skinny belt.
$58 at Nasty Gal.
