Sequins are mostly worn out to parties, especially those that take place at night. They are also the go-to pieces during the festive season, thanks to their sparkly nature. A sequin skirt is very feminine, and can be so much fun to wear. The best thing about it is that with the right styling, you can wear these skirts during other times of the year in casual or dressy ways.
Here are ideas on what to wear with sequin skirts:
With a denim jacket
Denim jackets are some of the most universally flattering pieces you can find around. They are also versatile, since denim jacket are so easy to coordinate with whatever you’re wearing most of the time. They look great with different skirts including sequin skirts.

With a turtleneck top
You can tuck your turtleneck into your sequin skirt for a sparkly but warm outfit.
A turtleneck is a functional top, especially during fall or winters. They cover you all the way up to your neck to keep you warm. They highlight your curves without being revealing, because they follow the shape of your upper body. You also have the options of turtlenecks in chunkier knits which are less curve hugging and look more relaxed.

With a cami
Camis are great for hot weather, thanks to their thin straps and the fact that they are mostly made of light fabric. They are flattering and versatile, since they are minimalist in design. You can style your cami with a sequin skirt.
This is a great combination, if you have an event to attend. Should it get colder later on, you can always layer some stylish outerwear over your look, for example a cape or a leather jacket.
With a pullover
A pullover can add a more casual vibe to the sequin skirt, making it more versatile to be worn not just for the night but also for the day time.

This is a very functional and practical outfit for the fall, giving you more usage of your sequin skirt before the holiday season starts.
With a trench coat
Trench coats are great outerwear pieces to own, as they are not only great for layering, but also shield you on rainy days. They also make for stylish fashion pieces. You can throw one over your sequin skirt look too, as the coat will tone down the dressy vibe of the outfit but just in the right way.

They are simply effortless, and picking them in neutral colors guarantees you an amazing look. When styled with your sequin skirts, they allow your sequin skirt to be the focus of your outfit.

With a tank
Tanks are easy tops to wear just like camis. They suit anyone just as long as you choose one that fits you right. Although they come in different prints, plain ones are easiest to style. The best thing about a tank is that it can be dressed up or down. Being minimal in design, they look great when worn with sequin skirts.

With a sequin sweater
For a festival look, you can also pair a sequin skirt with a sequin sweater. These two naturally go together, as long as you choose the right color combination.

A cape is ever so chic, and adds sophistication to your outfit, whether you choose to wear one with jeans or to wear it with more formal pieces in your closet. They can be worn with long-sleeved, short-sleeved or sleeveless tops. Caps also come in different fabrics both heavy and light ones.
If the weather is warmer, you can go for a shorter sequin skirt, a lighter cape, and airy shoes.
With a leather jacket
Wearing a leather jacket with a sequin skirt gives you that nice party-ready look you can wear to an event.
A leather jacket is a staple for the casual wardrobe, and it is the one piece that you should have in your closet, since you can wear it with almost anything.
