Every week, we bring you the best shoppable fashion and lifestyle stories from the editors at Lifestyle Mirror. Today we are sharing Taylor Davies's tips on how to wear sequins in the Summer.

Sequins, a perennial evening favorite, are making their foray into the light of day. And no, we don't just mean a glittering trim here or a sparkling graphic there. We're talking no fear, fully-sequined pieces that beg to be noticed. By wearing them with casual daytime basics and low-key accessories, these dresses, skirts, shorts and shoes become just the thing for summertime parties and even a weekend errand run. No, seriously.

Take, for example, Philipp Plein's sequin-covered athletic shorts. Slip those on with a pair of black Nike Frees and a muscle tee and you've just nailed the sport-luxe look. We're also kind of obsessed with the idea of wearing Acne's sequined boy shirt unbuttoned over a solid black or white bikini for the most casually glam poolside look ever. And speaking of poolside, Tory Burch has taken the flat espadrille to the next level by covering them in flashy little navy paillettes.

When it comes to the sequin dress, avoid the urge to sass it up with sky-high heels and va-va-voom makeup. Subvert its traditional styling with simple flat sandals, minimal accessories and a no makeup look. You'll look effortless, fancy and cool all at once.
