One Sequin Top – Styled 3 Ways

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express Canada for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

As I mentioned in my “I shopped til I dropped” post, I had the opportunity to select 3 items from Express during their Eaton Center Grand Opening Event. In today’s post I’ll be revealing 2 of my 3 picks!

My first choice won’t come as any surprise as it’s been on my wishlist for a while: The Iridescent Sequin Tulip Back Tank in Nude Blush. Shimmery, festive and in my favorite color – it’s perfect for the holiday season!

Sequins are VERY popular right now, and I knew I would get a lot of wear out of this top – it’s so versatile! I’ve already put together outfits based on it for 3 different occasions:

Casual – I’ve toned down the sequins by pairing it with a charcoal grey cardigan, faded jeans & my new Hunter rainboots.

Cocktail – You may have seen this outfit in my previous post, as I wore it to the L’Oreal Holiday Cocktail Party. I amped up the sparkles by pairing it with a gold sequined shrug and faux-pearl necklace. I also wore black skinnies and gold sandals (although I wish I had some metallic heels instead!)

Work –  I paired the sequin top with a classic white shirt, black editor pants & loafers. Of course this may not be appropriate for all work environments – but perhaps it would be a good choice for the office party.

My Cocktail party picture also featured my 2nd Express pick: The Colorblock Satchel. There are so many things I love about this bag – including the workmanship, material, color and size. I can see it being the only bag I use in December! It looks elegant yet is so spacious – for the L’Oreal party I was able to fit in our BIG camera AND a spare change of shoes, along with my makeup bag/wallet/phone etc. In the coming weeks I have several holiday parties to attend with my children – this bag will be able to accomodate all the extras I’ll be carrying!

    I love all three outfits! The cocktail version is my favorite because it's the most glamourous, but all three are beautiful and work for the specified occasions. I love your new rainboots too!I actually did venture to Express last weekend, and left with two new tops. One is a tank with pretty detail to it. It has a slight shimmer running throughout it, and it is in the blush color 😉 Definitely made me think of you! I'll have to take pictures when I wear it so you can see!

      I can't wait to see how you wear your blush tank – they had so many gorgeous tanks at Express – I liked this one because of the way it drapes. I'm SOOOO loving my Hunter boots, glad I finally got them – they do squeak a bit though LOL!

    I love all three looks especially the work look. I just picked up a sequin tank so I will have to try these ideas out.

      Thanks Nikki – I didn't think a sequin top would be so versatile – I'm loving all the different options 🙂

    Love how you wore it! I think i want to pick one up. Did you get size xs?

      Thanks! I picked out the S rather than the XS as I wanted a looser and longer fit (also makes it easy to layer on top of other pieces). Glad to hear you're getting one too 🙂

    GORGEOUS! I loved what you wore to the L'Oreal event but I actually really love they way you paired it for work! I may actually steal that idea for my work party next week and wear my black sequined tank over a dress shirt 😛

      I love your black sequinned tank… I think I need a black one too as they go so well with formal wear. Can't wait to see a pic of your office party outfit 🙂
