Choosing the Right Sequin Skirt

Sequin skirts come in a variety of styles, colors, and lengths. I am a firm believer in choosing one that you feel good in. Here are a few things to consider when selecting a sequin skirt:


Consider the occasion and your body type when selecting the length of your sequin skirt. For a formal event, a long sequin skirt is elegant and sophisticated. For a night out with friends, a shorter skirt is fun and flirty. A midi length skirt is a versatile option that can work for any occasion or body type.

The outfits I’ve styled in this article range from mini, long, to midi.


You can find sequin skirts in a range of colors, from classic gold and silver to bold and bright hues. Consider your skin tone and personal style when selecting a color. If you’re new to wearing sequins, start with a classic color like black, silver, or gold.

The outfits I’ve styled in this article include sequin skirts in silver, gold, black and magenta pink.


A well-fitted sequin skirt will flatter your figure so you can wear it confidently. Look for a skirt that fits snugly at the waist and hips without being too tight. If you have curves, I recommend a skirt with a slight A-line shape to balance your proportions.

The outfits I’ve styled in this article include A-line and pencil shapes.

The key to wearing a sequin skirt is to let it be the star of the show. With the right sequin skirt, you can create a look that is chic, unique to you, and perfect for the occasion.

Casual Outfit Ideas

Sequin skirts are often associated with formal events and parties, but they can also be dressed down for a more casual look. 

When it comes to shoes, sneakers or ankle boots can add a casual touch to your sequin skirt outfit. Avoid high heels or dressy shoes, as they can make the outfit look too formal.

When accessorizing, keep it simple. A statement necklace or earrings can add some extra sparkle to your outfit, but avoid wearing too many accessories as it can be overwhelming with the already shiny sequin skirt.

The key to wearing a sequin skirt casually is to balance the glitz and glam with more relaxed and casual pieces. I recommend experimenting with different outfit combinations and finding the look that suits your personal style.

Here are some ideas on how to wear a sequin skirt for a casual occasion:
