How to style it: Wear sequin tops with complimenting colors. eg. Gold and blues pair well hence the above (also see tip 4). Other good colour pairs: pink/chocolate or silver. Team a bold primary colour with a basic eg. old denim works with everything or clash two opposite colors together. I usually don’t do two sequin separates together (although it’s crossing my mind now). Wear what works based on your own personal style.

How to style it: Take a plain brimmed hat and secure the ends of a wrapped scarf with a pin. For belts consider superglue for a hat/belt combo that you’d want to keep. Just glue the belt itself and switch it out with different hats.
How to style it: I got the above one so I could wear it with anything dark. I like to layer them over jackets, thick knits, parkas and slim cut coats. If you find a thin fur vest, layer it under a coat or parka instead.
How to style it: I look for oversized dresses with sleeves. That’s me. If I wear a vintage slip as a dress, it’s usually layered under a jacket like the one from this post. Pair white dresses simply: think flats, boots, oxfords, Chuck Taylors (so effortless). Make them girly with strappy heels. Try heeled ankle boots like this one on Elle Strauss. Contrast with plain coloured bags if the dress has a pattern (like the above). Update hemlines with a side knot, pinned (like this older post) or have the front only sewed to sit higher (see above photo).
Look for Trophy Jackets: Look for heavily beaded, mirrored or sequined cardigans to wear as a trophy jacket.
Rummage the boot section and consider cutting them with scissors to ankle height (like these). Look for classic styles: Doc Martens, oxfords, wingtips, monks, stilettos with a straight heel. Avoid anything that’s not genuine leather.
Stock up on old rock band t-shirts and sweatshirts from the mens section.
