With the holidays approaching, it’s time to turn our eyes towards sequins. Once reserved for clubs or red carpets, these festive accents are making a comeback in a big way. From dainty, ethereal silver dresses at Valentino to bold, Japanese inspired overcoats at Gucci, the Autumn/Winter 2016 runways made a clear statement: there are plenty of ways to wear this eye-catching trend. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your day look or wow at an evening event, this season, there’s no shortage of versatile sequined pieces to suit your desired effect. With upcoming holiday parties and celebrations on the rise, what better time than now to try out this sparkly trend? We’ve rounded up a few wardrobe must-haves which will leave you shimmering this season.
Mango Skinny Sequin Jeans, $90: Embrace a laidback spin on this bold trend with this pair of sequined skinny jeans. The front is embroidered with thousands of black sequins, while the back is unadorned with black denim. Jagged, unhemmed cuffs add an unexpected edge to these glittery pants. Offset the trendy bottoms with classic pieces like a crisp white button down and black buckled loafers. Considering the major sparkle on these jeans, stick with understated, minimalist jewellery in a silver tone.
Lord Taylor BB Dakota Sequin Romper, $134: You’ll be the belle of every New Year’s party in this dazzling one piece. This kimono-style romper features sequined stripes throughout the entire piece. The loose, billowing sleeves are offset by a cinched waistband and short hemline, resulting in a flirty silhouette.
Mango Sequin Embroidered Jacket, $160: Women who enjoy sequins, but shy away from the season’s shimmery dresses will love this blazer that is ready for both work and play. The heather grey trim adds a fresh touch to the black sequined base of the jacket. The rounded neck and crisp pockets make the otherwise bold sequins office-appropriate. Balance the busy topper by layering it over a simple white tee, completing the look with a pair of classic black dress pants and sleek black flats.
Le Château Paisley Print Sequin Cocktail Dress, $170: Embrace the drama with this embellished black and gold cocktail dress. The paisley pattern in contrasting colours draws attention to the detailed sequined design and is appropriately festive. A pair of black tights downplays the dress’s short hem and flashy pattern. A pair of elegant chandelier earrings and minimalist black accessories keeps the overall effect chic and fresh.
