To avoid even a miniscule notion of pageant-y, color is critical. Dark, smoky sequins like the ones on this slate top say “moody,” not “perky, ” and still bring a little glam to your faded black denim. Velvet - Edeline Sequin Tee

The tank version makes for a fun girls’ night out top. Pair with dirty-wash Current/Elliott jeans and distressed flat boots for brilliant high/low contrast. Velvet - Kylea Sequin Tank

Think casual sequined frock is an oxymoron? Not so. This simple T-shirt dress has just the right amount of flash in front. Velvet - Josie Sequin Dress
