Where to shop for a sequin skirt
Revolve brings us quite a few options for sequin skirts but my favorite is clear. This mini gold sequin skirt is such a head-turner. I could see it being paired with a simple white top and some high heels or with a satin blouse. This is a skirt you wear when you’re not one to shy away from showing off your legs.
Asos shows us that sequined skirts don’t have to be mini and certainly don’t have to come in bold colors with this midi sequined skirt. I love the neutrality of the color, which would make it easy to pair with other colors in your wardrobe. You could easily style it with a crop top, sweater or blazer for a chic look. Whether you pair it with heels or a pair of white sneakers, it would be a hit.
When it comes to stylish and trendy clothing at affordable prices, Lulus has been a frontrunner. They currently have a decent range of sequined skirts in different colors. This black sequin skirt would make for a great centre piece which could be paired with a blouse, crop top or white sweater. The front thigh slit is just the icing on the cake.
Take your sequin game up a notch by trying out sequined skirts in bold prints. This floral sequin skirt for example would be a great way to incorporate sequins in the Spring or other warmer months. You could easily pair it with a t-shirt, a tank top or a denim shirt to create the look of your choice.
Now that you know my favorite places to shop for a shiny skirt, let’s jump into styling them in various ways. Whether you are working with a mini, midi or maxi skirt, the following looks can be used as a guide to style up your favorite sequin skirt.
1) Sequin skirt with a blouse
A great way to style a sequin skirt for an office party or more formal occasion is to pair it with a long-sleeved blouse. You could create a monochrome look by matching the color of your skirt to that of your blouse. This black blouse and black sequin skirt pairing is a great example of this. Complete your look with a pair of heels and a shiny clutch. You could also opt for heels in bright colors to add a pop of color to your outfit.

2) Sequin skirt with a graphic tee
The best way to create more of a casual look with your sequin skirt is to pair it with a graphic tee. This contrast between the shiny skirt and laid-back tee makes for quite the fashion statement. You could add a denim jacket to complete your look, if you’re dressing up during the winter months.
If you’re working with a sequin mini skirt, you could also throw on a pair of black tights. If you’re going with a pair of tights, I might suggest replacing the denim jacket with a black leather jacket.

Another great choice of footwear you could opt for, to transform your sequin look into everyday wear are ankle boots. Feel free to whip out those Dr. Martens and pair them with your best sequin skirts.
3) Sequin skirt with a crop top
Create a chic look with your sequin skirts by pairing them with cropped tops in different colors and styles. Depending on how you style them, it could look like you’re wearing a different dress to each event. Consider pairing your shiny skirt with a matching sequin top if you really want to go all out with this trend.
You could also always opt for a regular top and pair it with high heels or ballet flats. Complete your look with a trench coat or fur coat to serve up some glamour.

THIS midi sequin skirt is also a great option if you’re looking to add some color to your sequin outfit.
4) Sequin skirt with a sweater
An easy way to style a sequin skirt during the winter season is to pair it with a sweater. This could be a cropped sweater, a thin sweater which you use to layer upon or a chunky knit. If opting for a chunky sweater, I recommend at least partially tucking it in to avoid unflattering bunching which could make you look bigger than you are. Sweaters in neutral colors work great with bold sequined skirts to balance things out.

I love the pairing of a white sweater with a sequin skirt to really bring focus to the skirt.
5) Sequin skirt with a denim shirt
Pairing a sequin skirt with a chambray shirt is a good idea if you want to achieve a laid back look with your sequin outfit. You could even tie your shirt at the waist to make it even less formal or you could add a belt on top.
A pencil sequin skirt would look great paired with a denim shirt and either a pair of black heels or white sneakers. Another way to complete this look would be by adding a leather jacket or long line coat. This would play on your casual theme by adding dressier elements.

6) Sequin skirt with a white t-shirt
Add a little bit of sparkle to a plain white tee look by pairing it with a sequin skirt. A white shirt creates many possibilities of styling such as adding a jacket on top to create a layering effect. You could also tuck in your shirt to look more put-together and drape a thick shawl across your shoulders to elevate this simple look in a chic way.
A silver sequin skirt would look amazing paired with a white tee, nude strappy sandals and a white blazer.
