How To Rock Sequins This Christmas Party Season

With the festive season upon us and Christmas party outfit planning in full swing, so is the return of the sequins. With the search for the perfect outfit underway, one question many might have is “is there such a thing as too many sequins?”

When you think of sequins, you might think of a sparkle overload prom dress or your Nan’s favourite jumper. However, sequins don’t have to be garish. In fact, when worn in the right way, sequins can work well for almost any occasion, from festive pub lunches and Christmas markets to partying the night away with your colleagues.

Whether it’s statement sparkle or understated shimmer to spruce up festive looks, Alice Rowen Hall, Creative Director at Pink Boutique, shares her stylish ways to wear the trend this year.

The sequin show-stopper dress

The ultimate party look is still a sequin show-stopper dress. Whether it’s mini, midi or maxi, sequin dresses are everywhere. Look for sequin dresses in metallic shades to embrace the hottest colours this season.

Sequin bodysuits

If you’re feeling daring, a sequin bodysuit is a bold way to go. Pair the figure-hugging piece with your favourite PU pants or midi-skirt and you’re bound to make an entrance, no matter which striking silhouette you go for.

Knitwear with sequin details

For a toned-down affair that will take you from the Christmas markets to festive date nights, invest in jumpers with a hint of sparkle. Look out for cute jumpers trimmed with sequin edges and feature embellishment details- choose jewel colours for a grown-up take on the trend.

All in the accessories

Not feeling brave enough to go full-on sequin? Accessorise your wardrobe staples with a sequin clutch bag or statement sparkly hoop earrings to add instant night time glamour to your work look. Adding a touch of sparkle to your usual attire will give you an instant festive boost for those after-work tipples over the holiday season. That little black dress you wear all the time? Why not try adding a sequin belt? Not only will it enhance your curves but it’s also a guaranteed mood booster!

A touch of sparkle

Adding a little bit of sparkle to your beauty regime is a stunning subtle way to get maximum effect with very minimal effort. Swap out your matte brown eyeshadow for a glittery pigment or metallic liner, or simply add a touch of glitter to your usual manicure.
