Tis the season…to break out sparkly sequins! And since this trend has a limited shelf life, we turned to the style blogs for inspiration on how to make the most out of the festive (usually reserved for sundown) look by wearing it in the daytime, too. Jacqueline Le Brun of Around The Hourglass, Eboni Ife of Fashionista Next Door and Anna “Robbie” Robinson of The Other Side Of The Pond My Dear show us how you can dazzle without looking like a disco ball.

San Francisco-based blogger Jacqueline Le Brun’s sequin-adorned J.Crew cardigan looks romantic paired with her black lace Anne Taylor skirt, but we could totally see it dressed down with jeans, too. Which is a great reminder that you don’t have to get super fancy to rock the shiny trend! We also love the cardi’s bright yellow hue, which, when combined with the sequins, really livens up the look.

Blogger Eboni Ife’s sparkly little wrap shift not only screams holiday cheer, but it joins forces with another power trend, leopard, for the ultimate work-to-office party dress. It’s figure flattering, not overtly “loud” (as sequins can risk being), and would also look fabulous layered under a cardigan or blazer.

If we had British blogger Robbie’s silver skirt, we’re pretty sure we’d want to shimmy in the street just like her! Her shiny-sequined bottom, which comes from British retailer Primark, is the highlight of her outfit and looks amazing paired with a ruffled shirt. Like this look? You don’t have to travel to England to grab one. We’ve seen sparkly skirts in tons of stores (ShopBop.com has a dead ringer) stateside, so you can scoop one up and create your own spin on it.
