Using sequined garments in conjunction with tailored and other daytime pieces has emerged as a strong trend over recent seasons, seen both on the runways, as well on the streets during international fashion weeks. It’s a look that reflects consumer interest in technology and futurism, and is a wearable style that traverses the seasons.

The challenge with using sequins is that they are often created using materials that are petroleum-based and can pollute aquatic ecosystems and landfill for years. Earlier this year, Stella McCartney showcased a sustainable alternative. She used plant-based cellulose that is plastic-free, biodegradable and non-toxic for a sequined jumpsuit. Hopefully other brands will also explore creating sequins from ecologically sound materials such as recycled plastics. Here are recent examples of how to use sequins in a daytime look.
