In brief, I have a love/hate relationship with Zara. Furthermore, I’m confident that I’m not alone. Ask any blogger, and they’ll have mixed opinions about the brand. However, every now and again, the brand wins me over with styles like these Zara sequin pants and top.

Zara has great pieces! For the most part, you have to dig and search to find the gems. However, when you strike gold, the brand brings you back into their web. After seeing these sequin pants, I had to have them.

After all, it’s rare to come across sequin pieces that feel fresh, different, and modern. Frankly, that’s why I designed my STS Charlotte sequin dress. I was tired of body-con styles for New Year’s Eve!

Zara Sequin Pants

Similarly, these Zara sequin pants are superb. The wide-leg pant are comfy and have a metal closure and zipper to keep everything in place. At 5’4, the length of the pant leg is a big too long. In fact, I’m wearing my highest pair of heels in this photo shoot (lol)!.

Therefore, if you plan to purchase this sequin style, be prepared to possibly take it to the tailor. Also, I decided to buy this oversized sequin top to pair with it. Keep in mind, the top does not come with a slip or shirt for underneath. It’s sheer! Consequently, try it on with a tank top or slip to triple confirm that you like the way it looks.

Sequin Styles

One of my favorite aspects of the pants? The color. Frequently, sequin styles are typically only available in metallic hues. In this case, rose gold, silver, bronze, and gold. Sure, some brands unveil black, red, green, and pink options. However, companies tend to be safe with color selection.

As such, I was shocked to see this wide-leg Zara sequin pant style in a buttery caramel color. Friends, this never happens! In fact, it’s my favorite aspect of this style.

Styling the Sequin Pants

Okay, but how am I actually going to style these pants? After all, I probably won’t be wearing this head-to-heel look on an everyday basis. Plus, I would if I could, haha!

Overall, I plan to style these pants with neutral colored tops and sweaters. Generally, expect to see me wearing it with a crisp white button-down top, black cashmere sweater, and white top. Overall, I plan to wear slim fitting tops with the pants, since they have a lot of volume.

Also, I plan to always wear them with heels. After all, they’re pretty long on me (and I don’t anticipate going to a tailor until after the pandemic calms down. Lastly, I plan to style the pants with classic, neutral bags like the Paravel style seen here. Simple and easy!

In Closing

What are some of your favorite sequin styles? Have you tried any of Zara’s sequin pants or top options? I’d be curious to hear your thoughts and reviews on the products.
