How to wear my dark grey sequins leggings?
Can I ask your opinion on a shiny outfit? Dark grey sequin leggings, white button up shirt, fuchsia v neck cashmere tunic, and black heels. Rhinestone clutch. I generally wear the leggings with a black tunic but I want to try something different!
I think your outfit is a nice idea in terms of shapes because the cosy top balances the sexy shiny leggings which is nice for a dinner for instance. So bravo!
But I think that the addition of a flashy color and of additional stones sounds “too much”.
The rhinestone clutch will be at your hip level and will blend on the other glitter, so I’d go for something less shiny (remember my only one sparkly piece per outfit rule).
I also assume that “black heels” means pumps and am not so found of the legging + pumps combo which appears as slightly tacky to me.
Here are my suggestions to make a shiny cosy outfit for a new years eve dinner.
But before I begin let’s see what your outfit choice looks like (well, I did my best with the given informations ^^).
1. Your outfit suggestion
2. White button up, black sweater and green low boots
This outfit is really close to the one you had in mind minus flashy color and pumps.
I kept the idea of the layering you suggested cause I think it really brings the sequins leggings to a more casual style.
Like you did, I also chose the choose a longer top which hides the bum because leggings are not pants so you want to cover the crotch area.
Instead of pumps, I picked low boots in a very deep green shade in order not to draw to much attention. What I like about low boots is that they make the leggings look rock instead of bling. The complementary purple (no glitter) on the nails makes it pop.
For accessories I chose a pendant necklace to dress up the sweater and deep raspberry lipstick.
You could finish the look with a matte or velvet clutch.
2. White button up and black boots
Here is a freezier yet nice way to make an outfit out of your leggings and a button up. You could add a black/navy blazer or cardigan.
The burgundy clutch and lipstick add some color.
I like the fact that velvet/suede does not shine as much as plain leather
4. Baby blue sweater and blue boots
5. Teal blue tunic and kitten heels booties
