What Goes Best With a Gold Sequin Skirt?

by Sara Cantu, studioD

Glitzy sequined pieces make a major fashion statement and a gold sequined skirt is no exception. Ideal for rocking year-round, this versatile item can be dressed up or down and made totally appropriate for a number of events. From cool, laid-back pairings to those that add instant glamour, plenty of garments you may already own perfectly complement a luxe gold skirt.

Classic Elegance

A gold sequin skirt is as glitzy as garments come, but you can easily tone it down for more casual occasions. Pair your skirt with a crisp white button-down for a classic and sophisticated look. The addition of a statement necklace makes this outfit ideal for a cocktail party or dinner with friends. For a more spirited ensemble that's appropriate for daytime, wear a cool camouflage or chambray shirt to toughen up your skirt. If it's cool out, tights and lace-up boots not only complete the look, but keep it sufficiently grounded.

On Neutral Territory

Let the ornate embellishments of your skirt shine by pairing it with muted tops in soft neutrals. A silk or satin black camisole will mesh fabulously with a gold sequined skirt; simply add a structured blazer or cropped jacket for more coverage. While black tops are a glam pairing for this style of skirt, a casual beige, white or heather-gray tank top are stylish options as well. Finish this style of outfit with a pair of high heels in a neutral shade; or for an extra dose of pizazz, add a bright and bold pump that's sure to make a statement.

Too Cool T-Shirts

No garment adds instant edge to a gold sequined skirt quite like a vintage T-shirt. Faded band tees and plain cotton T-shirts are comfortable and casual pairings for a glam piece like a sequined mini. Add rugged ankle boots or a pair of strappy high-heeled sandals to make this outfit appropriate for day or night. Take the vibe one step further by topping the look off with a cool fedora or bohemian floppy hat. Not for the fashionably tame, these hip outfits are perfect for showcasing a unique flair for fashion.

Look Luxe in Leather

Edgy leather pieces are a stylish contrast to a sparkly gold sequin skirt. A leather tank top is a trendy pairing, while faux-leather peplum tops add a sophisticated element. Fall and winter weather is bound to be chilly, and a tough leather motorcycle jacket or blazer in black or ivory is ideal for keeping warm -- all while forming a sleek and put-together outfit that's anything but boring. Finish the look with neutral pumps or booties to keep your skirt the center of attention.
