The Look: Casually Embellished






Who on earth made up that silly fashion 'rule' that sequins and embellishments should be left until after dark?

Lets scrap that.

Sequins and embellishments can be casual.

Today I dressed down my super-embellished pearl and sequin cami with a scuba blue skater skirt and Birkenstock sandals. The casual fabric and blocked colour of the skirt turned a shirt that would be considered very dressy into something that's suitable for the day time.

Here's a few tips and tricks on how to wear embellished items during the day:

Do
  •  Tuck an embellished shirt into a high-waisted skirt, trousers, shorts or jeans.
  • Limit the rest of your items to solid, block colours.
  • Wear flats, sneakers or sandals.
  • Mix and match with casual textures- such as denim, scuba and knit.
Don't
  • Wear heels, even if you would normally consider them 'casual'.
  • Wear patterned items with an embellished items.
  • Wear dressy jewellery.
  • Pair your look with immaculate hair and makeup- think undone and beachy.


What do you think about wearing embellished pieces during the day?

  2. This is SO spot on and very helpful! I think mixing fancy with casual makes for some very fun and creative looks, and you styled that embelished top flawlessly. I always love flipping through j crew catalogs for this same reason- they're *geniuses* when it comes to taking expensive, night time pieces and making them work with things like sweats and sweaters :)
