How to Wear a Vintage Sequin Top

These very words appeared in my blog search keywords --  How to Wear a Vintage Sequin Top. As I am a super fan of vintage sequin tops, I felt moved to answer the question.

Step 1: Find a sequin top

Visit your local thrift or vintage stores. They're likely cheaper in a thrift store but a vintage store will probably have a freshly cleaned mint one all ready for you to wear. You can also search eBay, Etsy, and other online thrift stores too.

Step 2: Pair with what you're comfortable in

Sequins and jeans are my comfort look. It's my when in doubt garment when I don't know what to wear. Black is another way to go - trim black trousers or a form fitting black skirt are good options too. If you love all things shiny and sparkly, you may be comfortable in sequins from head to toe.

Step 3: Accessorize

Go with little to no jewelry or wear small pieces that won't compete with your fabulous sequin top.

Step 4: Match shoes to what you're wearing on bottom

If you're casual on bottom go with a casual matching shoe. If you're in more sequins on bottom (yay!) or a sexy black skirt, a nice heel would probably work better.

How do you wear sequins?

There are no sequins tops in The Thriftanista Closet on eBay but the Nanette Lepore satin and lace skirt has sequins and beading!

That sequin shirt looks great! I like the idea of wearing something that is obviously meant to be flashy or showy in a simple way like a basic tee. Well done, well done!
