I totally get it. You aren’t sure if you should invest in that sparkly sequin top because you may only wear it a few times.  You know you will wear it for New Year’s Eve or a holiday party or , but after that you think you may never wear it again. Well think again! I’ll show you six very different outfit combinations with one black sequin shirt. See how you can wear it all year round, in every season, and for day and night!

I fell in love with Lauren’s black sequin outfit from Express. See how she styled it on an Instagram Reel here. The entire look is amazing and reminds me of something from Tom Ford, yet it is so reasonably priced!

The Black Sequin Shirt

If you only get one piece, I recommend the Relaxed Sequin Portofino Shirt in Pitch Black and now it is on sale for $64.80. This piece is extremely versatile.

How To Wear A Black Sequin Shirt

There are multiple ways to wear a black sequin button front shirt.

Wear it tucked in or out. And you can do a French tuck, for a more laid back look. Wear it unbuttoned over a tank or tee shirt jacket-style, or under a jacket or blazer for a little peek of sequins around your neckline. It looks amazing with pants skirts or over fitted dresses.

Wear it day and night. Wear a black sequin shirt with all black or other metallics like silver or gold for evening. For daytime, pair it with your jeans, or wear it under a leather jacket or blazer.

Wear it in multiple seasons. A black sequin top will work over white or floral pants and a tank in spring and summer. In the fall you can mix it in with wool plaid pants and skirts. And the winter it will be your go-to holiday party top, that you can dress up with sleek pants or a dress or skirt. You can dress it down with a pair of faded denim jeans or even over a pair of black fleece joggers.

6 Outfits With One Black Sequin Shirt

Here are six outfits I styled with one black sequin shirt. Besides these looks, this may give you ideas of even more ways you would like to wear it.

Head To Toe Sequins

I stole Lauren’s outfit here! See how she styled it with a “half tuck”. Get the matching black sequin joggers, grab a silver handbag and slip on a pair of black booties and you are all set for a chic party outfit.

Black Sequin Shirt Under a Bright Colored Suit

Wear a black sequin shirt under a bright colored suit. It works almost like jewelry here with the sparkles around your neckline. Add a textured black bag and some sleek silver shoes. This outfit works both day and night.

The Sequin Shirt As A Jacket

Here is another evening look that is totally comfortable. Wear the jacket open over a black tank and a pair of knit wide leg pants. Slip on some suede slides and grab a colorful evening bag in red or the color of your choice.
