If you had previously written off sequins and sparkle as a one-and-done look reserved for holiday parties and New Year's Eve, we can't say we blame you - but you might want to think again! While shimmer packs a major punch, it turns out that adding a little sparkle to your daytime look is the perfect way to amp up your outfit. Still skeptical? These grown-up outfits with a hint of shimmer just might change your mind.

1. On a skirt
Sparkle All Grown Up: Skirt
A flash of sequins on a chic beaded mini skirt ($39.99, H&M) is the easiest way to add sparkle to your look for day. Because a sequined mini is such a statement piece, you'll want to build the rest of your look around it using muted, neutral pieces like an oversize grey sweater ($39.90, Zara) and black sleeveless blazer ($49.64, Glamorous). Track-soled ankle booties ($34.99, H&M) and a gunmetal statement cuff ($5.90, Forever 21) toughen things up just enough.

2. On booties
Sparkle All Grown Up: Boots

If you're a little nervous about conquering sequins, try wearing them in a low dose on an accessory, like black sparkly ankle boots ($49.90, Zara). A plaid shirt dress ($98, Madewell) keeps them casual and daytime appropriate, and a fur vest topper ($39.99, H&M) adds an extra layer of warmth for a chilly day. Balance out shimmery shoes by adding a statement necklace ($9.90, Forever 21) up top, and finish off the look with an on-trend wool hat ($38, Abercrombie & Fitch)!

3. On a sweatshirt
Sparkle All Grown Up: Sweatshirt
A sporty sweatshirt and super glam sequins may seem like an odd pair, but in this case, opposites attract. A sequined sweatshirt ($55.86, Pink Queen) is the perfect way to make sure your shimmery outfit looks more casual than clubwear. A denim shirt ($65, Topshop) underneath adds a bit of unexpected layering, and a knit midi skirt ($50, Abercrombie & Fitch) is a must-have for the chilly season ahead! Match your sweatshirt's sporty vibes with Adidas sneakers ($79.95, Nordstrom). A timeless quilted crossbody with a chic fringe update ($24.99, H&M) is the perfect place to keep your essentials!
