5 reasons you should be wearing sequins to work

Dec 26, 2013

1. Mood boosting

You know that feeling of dread when you roll out of bed on Monday mornings? You know, after snoozing past your normal alarm, your kind-of-annoying alarm and then reaching the point where the eardrum-shattering-fog-horn alarm goes off? That’s when you know it’s time to pull on your sequins. It is a scientifically proven fact* that your mood improves when you’re excited about the outfit you’re wearing. Another fun fact? Human’s moods respond positively to light. Guess what? Sequins fall into both these categories. Make your own sunshine. Sparkle during your workday. You won’t be sorry. 

2. Attention grabbing

Having trouble getting noticed at the office? Or by that cute boy you always see at Starbucks? Nobody is going to miss you in that gold sequined blazer, girl! Not to mention, a sparkly piece is always a great conversation starter. 

3. Confidence building

You know those pieces in your closet you always gravitate towards when you know you have a big presentation or important meeting? We call that a “power outfit”. Sequins are an amazing edition to your power outfit. When you walk into that meeting wearing a kick-ass ensemble with a little sparkle, people are going to say, “Wow, that girl’s got balls. I like her!” Own your outfit, and you’ll own your meeting. 

4. Sparkle = Neutral 

Sparkles are the new neutral. Yes, correct, they go with anything! Treat them as you would your favorite tan tank or blush blazer. Next time you go to grab your old standby grey shirt, reach for the silver sparkled one instead. It’s a tiny change that will make a big impact. 

5. Worry free

There are some people who are accident prone, and some people who artfully can eat a salad at their desk or perfectly sip their morning coffee without spilling it all over themselves. I’m actually not that person, so I appreciate the fact that sequins literally disguise ANY stain. Additionally, if you’re wearing a sequin piece, you don’t have to worry about any other elements of your outfit. The sequins do the talking. Everything else about your outfit can be plain-jane, including your hair and make up. Can’t get much easier than that.
