3 Ways To Reuse Your Sequins After NYE

By  | 

Sequins and New Year’s Eve go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s almost like a prerequisite. But once you’re actually in the new year, chances of you touching those sequins again, unless it’s for your birthday, are slim to none. Instead of letting a perfectly good glittering number waste away in your closet, why not make it a part of your daily #ootd?

Confused? Of course it’s possible. With the right layers and combinations, you can wear your shimmering crop top to a business cocktail and not be summoned to the HR department the next day for your outfit.

It’s always better to reuse and repeat, and if you’re doing it the right way, no one will even know you’ve worn the same top over and over, because it looks different every time you wear it.

Try these simple tricks and you’ll be able to wear your NYE sequins anywhere you want.

Reuse Your Sequinned Dress

An easy way to tone down the effect of a sequinned dress is to add a shirt over it. Tie it in the front instead of buttoning it down and swap those ankle strap stilettos you wore on NYE with a pair of comfy sneakers. There’s no reason you can’t wear the outfit to Sunday brunch with your girlfriends.

Reuse Your Sequinned Crop Top

You may have worn your shiny crop with a thigh-high slit skirt for NYE, but in Jan, here’s how you’ve got to do it. Trade the skirt for a tailored pair of trousers and add on a matching  jacket or blazer. Got a work event to attend? This is the outfit you need to wear.

Reuse Your Sequinned Skirt

Sequinned skirts might need a little more effort to cover up. Wear your comfiest tank top, one that matches your skirt. Now take a shirt in a similar colour and tie it around your waist. If your skirt is pink like this one, a black tank and shirt will work well! Alternatively, you could even use a denim jacket or shirt around your waist.
