Practical doesn’t mean boring. I might say this almost every week, but it’s still just as true today as it was this past summer, last spring, or the previous winter.
This week’s fabulously fun gem will truly put some extra pep in your step and add some seriously jewel-like sparkle to any outfit. These brilliant sequined pink sneakers are the perfect way to put a fresh spin on your usual choices in casual wear. The sequins might seem flashy, but if you’re in need of a bit of fun and still want to wear something comfy and suited for your more relaxed ensembles, then a pair of sneakers like these are exactly what you’re looking for.
Class up your casual wear. Sequins could seem like a bit much (especially for daytime), but they’re actually a super chic and modern way to dress up your everyday looks. As long as you put this loud-ish pair of shoes on with some more demure or classic wardrobe pieces, they actually make a perfect match. Here, I’ve paired them in a simple, slim-cut pair of navy trousers in a soft, brushed cotton fabric that’s fabulously cozy and just right for fall. A loose but lacy blouse in a soothing shade of cream contrasts beautifully with the dark navy on the bottom, but is still nice and neutral and won’t clash with my vibrant pink footwear. A classically cut denim blazer will keep me warm in the midst of the early October chill, but again, is a neutral fabric that won’t fight with the oh-so-fabulous sequined shoes – which will instantly jazz up this otherwise unassuming outfit.
