For those of you into sequins, a pair of sequin leggings or joggers is a must for the holiday season, especially if you’re attending holiday events at a not-so-heated venue. Even for those of you who don’t usually care for sequins, you may just like the glamour and newness of sequined pants. Interestingly enough, I picked up my first pair of sequin leggings about 11 years ago and they are still perfect — truly a testimony to the timelessness of sparkly pants. In fact, we are updating this post that was first created over a decade ago. I was first inspired to write about sequin leggings when I saw a fabulous pair by Alice + Olivia that was featured in Vogue. Those Alice + Olivia leggings had a fantastic feel and weight that grazed the entire body. Alas, those leggings are only available in a few sizes on eBay, so let’s get you all a diverse selection of fresh sequin stems.
What To Wear With Sequin Leggings
A sequin pant look can easily become a spectacle if you overdo it, but it can also become a disconnected flop if you underdo it. You really have to find that glorious middle ground. You want your sequin legging outfits to feel sophisticated or push fashion forward.
To avoid a costumey look, do not add any other garment or accessory with sequins on it and skip tops that are overly revealing. I also like to avoid prints with sequin pants so your outfit doesn’t get too busy. Instead, get that glamour by pairing a statement top with ruffles or balloon sleeves with your sequin leggings or joggers.
To avoid the bore-fest, skip pairing a white t-shirt with your sequins — this is a pet peeve of mine. Instead, I love pairing a solid-colored cropped sweater, chic turtleneck, or silky blouse with a sequin legging. You can also wear a collared tunic or long sweater if you want more coverage. Shoe-wise, you want to do a pointy-toe bootie, a spectacular pump, or a pointed toe flat. You can also do a simple open-toe heel. Take a look at the shop this post below to find the right items for you.
How To Wear Sequin Joggers
Generally, I prefer a cropped or tucked-in look with all jogger outfits, including a sequin jogger look. Yes, you can wear a tunic or long sweater with sequin leggings, but if you do that with joggers, you really need a higher stiletto heel to make it look fabulous, and I am over stilettos. I prefer to recommend outfit ideas that do not require sky-high heels in order to achieve a sexy and slimming look. So stick with the cropped or tucked-in look with the sequin joggers and skip the stilettos. For my favorite non-sequin joggers, check out my post, “How To Style Sweatpants.”
Outerwear For Sequin Legging Outfits
If you are down to create a small spectacle, rock the faux fur — I mean, I am down! But if you want a more sophisticated look, I love pairing a sleek hip-length or knee-length coat with sequin leggings. Just like the model “off-duty” rocked over a decade ago in the Vogue feature (pictured at the bottom of the post). That is still a fantastic choice. Indeed it is my first choice. I especially love a trench coat with sequin leggings and pants.
Vince Camuto Sequin Pull-On Joggers
These are the cutest sequin joggers by Vince! You will wear them exactly the same way as sequin leggings, but I prefer a cropped jacket with a jogger. These joggers are available at Nordstrom and Dillard’s. They’re also available in black at Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s.

These Tom Ford Sequined Zip-Cuff Leggings are a bit sheer, so you will need to wear a longer top with them, or embrace the glory. These leggings are available at Neiman Marcus, Farfetch, and Bergdorf Goodman.
