I’ve done a lot of One Piece, Several Ways posts here on the blog (you can see them here, here, & here), but it’s been a few months since I’ve done one. So when we decided to do another one for this round of Raiding My Sister’s Closet, I was excited to stretch myself a bit and find five ways to wear one of my new favorite pieces — a black sequin top
1. Layered
It’s easy to wear a top by itself, but things sometimes get tricky when you start layering. I went with a basic chambray so it didn’t compete with the sequins, and then pinned up the hem of the sequin top to give it a more casual look and expose the bottom of the chambray. Then, to keep things even more casual, I went with an oversized leather bag, brown wedge booties, and a top knot.

2. Fancy

I’m such a sucker for the oxblood trend, and this leather skirt in that color is absolutely perfect. It creates such a fabulous combination of textures when it’s paired with the sequin top — it’s a little edgy, a little feminine, a little over the top, but still so simple. Plus, since the leather skirt is fairly thick, there’s no awkward bulging around my waist when I tuck in the sequin top — win.

 3. Juxtapose

I love a good juxtaposition, and pairing this sequin top with a casual utility vest does just that. I added a pair of leopard pumps for a fun pop of pattern, and then kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple.

4. Boyfriend

I’ve seen a lot of people pair sequins with a pair of boyfriend jeans, so I had to try it out. I love the contrast of the distressed denim with the fancy sequins. I added a clutch, some gold arm candy, and a pair of killer black heels to complete the look — perfect for date night with your boyfriend (although I’m pretty sure all boyfriends actually hate boyfriend jeans).

5. Black-Out

The key to wearing monochromatic and not making it totally boring and flat is to play with different textures. The sequin shirt is perfect for this since it’s a fantastic textured piece. I added a leather jacket to add some contrasting texture, as well as a pair of suede booties.
