5 things you need to know about wearing Sequins to work

So I LOVE wearing sequins. I mean come on, what's better to a girl that loves fashion then something that sparkles. The key is making them work and age appropriate. I actually hate (sorry strong word, I don't let me students use it so I like to practice what I preach) Let's try this again: I actually can't stand that people think sequins are an age thing, why is that? What says that after we turn 20,  30, or whatever the age limit is that we can no longer wear sequins?! I'm here to tell you you can and you should! Work clothes don't have to be boring.  


Tip #1: Wear your hair up, especially if there are sequins on the back. Trust me on this one, as someone with long hair and numerous encounters with hard to get out knots, you will want to wear your hair up. Wearing an up-do will eliminate any stray hairs from getting caught in all the fabulous sequins. 
Tip #2: Less is more. Go simple and classic with your jewelry. Good rule of thumb if you could only pick 3 items, what would they be?
Tip 3: Pencil skirts are a must. As a staple in the work place, they instantly scream professional, modesty and all other sophisticated synonyms you are going for. 
Tip #4: Shoes. Again go classic with a nude or black pump. I would stay away from open-toed shoes as they tend to give a more "going-out" feel to the outfit. Or another alternative would be some classic riding boots to give the outfit an even more relaxed feel. 
Tip #5: Own the look. Wear what makes you feel good, be confident and the rest will come!
