A call to sequin arms... I'm on the hunt for a mini sequin skirt, fitted or a-line, silver or black. But can't seem to find one anywhere. Please oh stylish ones help me to track one down?

I'm a size ten, average height with decent legs. I thought a sequin skirt with a cami top would look good for a couple of Christmas niight s out. All help, suggestions or alternatives very welcome.

Lovely looking Zara one and also this one. Also a patterned one.

Redlion that's great too. I'm going to order both and see which fits best. What would you wear/style with the skirt? I'm mid 30s slim and would like to look carefree (ah that sounds a bit cheesy).

theredlion Sat 28-Nov-15 22:20:14

A cami top would be lovely but you might freeze! Have you got a going outside cover up idea?

BurningBriquette Sat 28-Nov-15 22:21:02

Green love the first two Sara skirts. Like them with a jumper too (surprisingly). Thank you all - feeling much better about Christmas nights out now.

There were loads about in the shops today burning.
When I went out last week there was a woman out who looked fantastic, she was wearing a short black sequin skirt, high shoe boots and a black top.

Redlion that is a good point - likely to be moving from bar to bar. Hmm. Not sure what would work - have a leather jacket but worried it would look a bit dated. Would a jumper look weird?

theredlion Sat 28-Nov-15 22:24:19

Her top was something like this top

Any good? Or too modest?

BurningBriquette Sat 28-Nov-15 22:27:11

Thank you Red - I am somewhat challenged on the top front as quite small in the book dept so that top may hang off me ifyswim sad

Have you got a faux fur coat? They are usually warm and look good.
Also a scarf and maybe a hat that you can whip off when you get to the next pub and stick in your pocket? or is that an old lady suggestion? grin

BurningBriquette Sat 28-Nov-15 22:27:53

Book dept should read book. Garrr spellchecker

theredlion Sat 28-Nov-15 22:30:57

Any good? sparkly

I wish I was thin enough to wear this! cami

Are either of those the right sort of thing?

BurningBriquette Sat 28-Nov-15 22:31:20

Oh oh oh yes I have an old 70s faux fur ... it might honk a bit though as it has been in the wardrobe for years. A hat is a great idea. What do you think to a beret?

BurningBriquette Sat 28-Nov-15 22:33:43

I like the second cami... takes me back to clubbing in the 90s (now I feel old). Redlion you are a wonder. Thank you!

theredlion Sat 28-Nov-15 22:34:13

A beret sounds lovely.

theredlion Sat 28-Nov-15 22:35:12

Shucks, thank you.

Whatever you wear have an awesome night.

BurningBriquette Sat 28-Nov-15 22:35:15

Would tucking the cami in look cool or a bit err try hard? (Can you tell I don't get out much of late).

KateSpadeAddict Sat 28-Nov-15 23:59:47

Tuck in definitely smile I have that new look cami and it looks lovely at the back. You need a strapless bra grin

I'd wear with a soft cashmere round neck knit.. the skirt does all the talking so you need to tone down the rest..
