How To Make The Best Of Your Sequined Shoes

//How To Make The Best Of Your Sequined Shoes

If there was a time when you were afraid of wearing shiny clothes, forget about it! We are living the era when fashion knows no rules, the era in which mass-market fashion giants are feeding the hungry fashion consumer and us(the fashion addicts) are dreaming the day when we are going to own our first Chanel bag. But still, let’s go back to the “no rules” thing. When I was little, I remember my mother’s friend who had a red sequin dress. God, I fell in love of that piece instantaneously. I tend to think that was the “shininess” of the beautiful red dress that made me fall in love! See where I am going here? Girls love shiny things, those that are eccentric and that standout. They don’t only dominate the whole outfit, but dominate the whole room and get all the attention. I tell you, you won’t pass unnoticed wearing a glittering dress, jacket or shoes.

But today we are going to talk about shoes. Wearing a sequin dress like the Ziad Nekad one(I think I have a new addiction!) is quite simple: the dress makes it all, you’ll only wear delicate jewelry and nude heels. Easy, right? When it comes to shoes, the story follows a totally different track. You have to think about the whole combination, the blending in order to don’t go from “chic” to “kitsch”. It’s not an easy job and this is exactly why we are going to show you some amazing pairs of shoes embellished with sequins and the way you can wear them in order to shine throughout your entire look!

Keep your feet on the ground

Some of you may find wearing glittering flats uncomfortable or awkward mainly because flats are associated with everyday, casual wear. We say: forget about that! There are two ways of wearing them: either you wear the sequin flats on a night out, either you simply come up with the most amazing day outfit!

Kate Spade NY


TIP: Combine this pair of beautiful Kate Spade gold sequined oxford with a pair of skinny jeans and a loose white shirt! Put your trench on for a autumn fresh look! If you still want to add some jewelry to your outfit, I would suggest a “gramercy grand” bracelet watch  and a pair of “seaport” faux pearl studs like the one in the picture. Do you agree with mixing silver and gold?

If you are not really into oxford flats, choose a pair of cool sneakers! A common outfit can be easily turned into a dazzling one only by adding some sparkle! Learn from the best: Chiara Ferargni changed her plain look by wearing a glittery jacket and a pair of cool sequined sneakers!

Forget about Flat(s) Outfits

We all love high heels! Either stilettos, pumps or platform shoes, they can make us look amazing! Still, if they are worn in the wrong combo they can ruin our whole outfit in a second! When it comes to sequined high heels shoes, there is absolutely no doubt that they should be worn in the evening or at a really important event. So, which is the winning combination?

Christian Louboutin Cleo clutch and Iriza Strass Crystal Pumps


TIP: For a remarkable look, choose the best of best! For the Louboutin Iriza Strass Crystal Pumps and the ravishing Cleo clutch, I would recommend some volume in the lower part.: an ample and bold midi skirt and a precious top, like a loose silk one, which could work wonders. In what concerns the colors, try anything you want, it’s up to you from pink to black to be creative!

 Glitter, glitter on your boots!

I would say that from all shoe type, combining boots decorated with sequin is the hardest job to perform! And I call it job because every woman works full time on the activity of finding the right combination when it comes to her looks! If, though, you’ve decided to buy a pair of sequin embellished boots, or you already own one, but you’re out of ideas on how to wear them, we are here to help you!

Guess Sequin Ankle Boots, Piton Leather Belt and Guess by Marciano Eyewear


TIP: In order to make the best of your fall outfit, choose a pair of leather ankle boots adorned with a soft touch of sequin-like the Guess ones in light grey. Also, for accessorizing the whole look, go for some delicate pieces. I say the python leather belt is one of the musts of the cold season. For your entire look to seem really polished, don’t forget your fancy sunglasses or spectacles home! I suggest you the beautiful Guess by Marciano black/python spectacles!

Nevertheless, when the night comes, put your LBD on and a statement pair of sequin boots like the Maison Martin Margiela in the picture above. You’ll surely look as you just walked down the runway!
