HOW TO LAYER SEQUIN AND METALLIC DRESSES FOR NYE?

It's the last day of year 2019. What to wear for NYE? If you want to shine, then opting for a shiny outfit makes sense. Fabrics that catch the light such as metallic, sequin, shiny and glitter ones are really trending this year. A nice sequin of metallic dress is a sure way to get noticed.  If your choice is a sequin or a metallic item, then you've probably asked yourself how to layer it. Today I'll show you how I layer some of my metallic and sequin items. A nice coat is always a great thing to throw over a sequin or metallic dress, but that is not the only option. You can also experiment with tops, shirts and blazer. If you're celebrating outside, then layering your NYE outfit REALLY makes sense.


HOW TO LAYER A GOLD SEQUIN MAXI DRESS? 
Bellow you can see how I layered this gold sequin maxi dress with a vintage golden top. Pairing gold with gold makes sense. If you want to make sure you're warm and cozy, throwing on a top over your maxi dress is a good option. Just make sure they match one another nicely. Another option is wearing a mesh top or in my case a long mesh coat (also vintage).



HOW TO LAYER A V-NECK METALLIC DRESS? 
This V-neck wrap metallic dress is such a versatile item. I often wear it to weddings, date nights and special occasions.  It is the perfect thing to grab when I can't figure out what to wear. I even wore it for Christmas dinner twice. Not bad for a dress that only cost me two euros in an outlet shop. If you have a dress like this one, there are a few ways to layer it. To start with, don't forget the tights. Blazers look great with this kind of dresses and so do coats. If you want make you're warm, avoid sandals and opt for a classical pair of stilettos or even boots (if you're celebrating outside). 
HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS? 
 HOW TO LAYER A BLACK DRESS WITH METALLIC TOUCHES? 
This is another vintage number from my closet. I often wear this dress for special occasions. I love the subtle top of metallic. Silver and black is such a darling combination. I like to layer this dress with a red blazer just to create some visual contrast. It looks great layered with a faux coat as well. 

 HOW TO LAYER A VINTAGE METALLIC MAXI DRESS?
When it comes to my favourite metallic items, this vintage maxi dress is the first thing that comes to mind. It is actually a part of the set. The first golden top of this post is the item it came with. However, I like to experiment and pair it with different things. I like how it looks worn with a statement coat and that's how I layer it for winter. See also how I wore it for Christmas day this year. You know, I think there is no need to keep our outfits neutral for New Year celebration. Sequins and metallic fabrics can be paired with vibrant colours for a more dramatic effect. Think red, purple or pink if you want to create a feminine bling bling outfit for this NYE celebration.  


As always, thank you for reading and commenting. I wish you all the best in 2020!

  1. What a sparkling post, Ivana! I especially love the first two outfits, the maxi skirt and dress. They really make your enviously beautiful figure shine! On second thought, I'm also loving that vintage maxi dress. Ooh, choices! What will you wear? I have my outfit ready: a maxi skirt I've never worn before! I'm wishing you and your husband all the best in 2020 too! xxx

  3. Anche io adoro indossare paillettes e glitter, soprattutto a Capodanno!
    Però mi rendo conto che questi abiti sono spesso poco adatti al freddo di questo periodo, soprattutto se si passerà parte della serata all'aperto; per questo ho trovato le tue idee davvero utili e di ispirazione!
    Il primo abito in particolare è stupendo, sembri una dea greca!
    Tantissimi auguri di un meraviglioso 2020, Ivana!
    baci!

  5. I love all of these looks on you - how smart you are to have so many sparkly pieces in your wardrobe (I have one....just one). That first look is so beautiful and elegant and how smart of you to put a top over a dress! I keep forgetting that I can extend some of my summery clothes into the fall and maybe even winter by putting a long-sleeved top or sweater on over it. I can't believe you found that dress for 2 Euros....that's amazing and it's perfect on you! That wrap-look dress is so pretty on you and I love the red blazer over it and I'm in love with that last skirt and I love the gorgeous wine-colored coat! Great job on styling all of these - now which will you wear tonight?

  6. Dear Ivana, yes, layering is also in this context the key! And you know even to layer sequins and metallics in perfect ways. I think sequins and metallics are wonderful for NYE and I'll definitely wear tonight one of my sequinned skirts. Thanks to you I'm now not afraid to layer it!
    Happy 2020!

  10. That sequin maxi dress is awesome !I wish I had something like that, although I know I'd have nowhere to wear it, haha! I like it with the black crochet duster over the top! :)

    Hope that you have a happy new year and 2020 is off to a great start! :) I spent NYE asleep in bed, no fancy sequins here, ha!

  12. Layering is sometimes a hard one, especially when it comes to delicate dresses. But your examples really look great! I love the first dress with the golden top and the shining necklace, that looks so pretty and festive on you!
    Happy new year, I hope you had a wonderful start into 2020! Maren

  13. Ho un vestito praticamente identico al primo che indossi, mi piace moltissimo l'idea di abbinare sopra un maglioncino di quel colore. Buon anno Ivana!
