How To Wear Sequins Without Looking ’80s

The Dries Van Noten Fall 2015 collection wafted down the runway today in Paris and as usual, it boasted jaw-dropping embellishments. The glittering ready-to-wear pieces stood out as the perfect way to wear sparkle during the day—wardrobe staples like a trench coat, crew neck sweaters and pencil skirts were covered in paillettes. If you’re a magpie (like us) but don’t enjoy looking like a member of the Dallas cast, steal these 3 styling ideas from the Dries runway and start shining bright like a diamond.

Embellished Trench Coat

Styling Tip: Look for an embellished androgynous piece such as a trench coat, blazer or bomber. The sequins will add a feminine touch to these minimal silhouettes.

Sparkling Pencil Skirt

Styling Tip: If a pencil skirt is your go-to for transitioning from the office to dinner, try an embellished version. Wear it with a button down for business hours and a silk tank for evening.

Bedazzled Crew Neck Sweater

Styling Tip: We're obsessed with the proportions of this look—steal the vibe by pairing a sequins crew neck sweater with wide-leg trousers.
