Less is more with sequins.  Treat anything with sequins as an accessory.  For example, the Forever 21 Dripped Sequin KnitELLE Dolman Tunic, and Forever 21 Iridescent Sequin Top  all have sequins along the cuffs and neckline, there is no need for a necklace or bracelet.   A pair of silver studs will do just fine.

Shoes with embellishments, such as sequins, are acceptable for day or night time wear. 

Day: A black blazer, white tee, your favorite pair of jeans, and an over sized black purse will look divine. 
Night:  Black leggings, long white tank, gray cardigan, and a black satin clutch will truly keep all eyes on you.

These Guess Carrielee4 Sequin pumps can be found at Macy's for $89.00.

Headbands in the same color hue as your hair look very classy. 

Clutches embellished with sequins add a touch of class to a night time outfit.
