The Sequin Edit

We’re nearly on the final page of the calendar, and that means party season is upon us — dark, chilly nights, the age old dilemma of tights or no tights, and tipsy renditions of All I Want For Christmas Is You are finally within reaching distance. We’re so ready to get glammed up and sip on a mug of mulled wine, but as always, choosing what to wear is always the hardest part of going out.

Nothing says festive quite like sparkling sequins and a little bit of shimmering glitter so we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite shiny pieces that are sure to have you feeling like a star as we party into the new year.

First up, this Black Sequinned Dress by Oleg Cassini ticks all the winter boxes. Long sleeves? Check. Loose-fitting? Check. Forgiving peplum-esque ruffle detail at the waist if you can’t keep away from the mince pies? Same, tbh. But check check check! Being black, the sequins aren’t completely ~in your face~ either, which is just another win if you want to stand out but not be the centre of attention.

Or, if you’re looking for something with just a tad more edge, maybe give the Black Sequin Playsuit by Bill + Mar a look; simply add a thick pair of tights underneath — glittery tights if you’re not feeling sparkly enough — and you’ll be good to go! Plus, because the sequins aren’t all over, the playsuit will easily work for parties year-round.

The stunning 1920s-Style Maxi Dress from Matteo Couture is the dreamiest bronze and rose gold statement piece. Just picture it with a cosy faux fur coat over the top and a sleek pair of heels — isn’t it beautiful?

If you’re after something a bit more subtle (or as subtle as sequins can be, anyway) then this Black Sequin Swing Skirt from The West Village could be what you’re looking for: the ruffled hem and rippled sequins add just a touch of flair to a simple longline skirt. Pair with a chic white top and a jacket and you’ve got an easy festive outfit without too much fuss.

If you prefer your sequins as an accent rather than being covered head to toe then the Black Sequin Sleeve Denim Jacket by RtA is a perfect choice — the sequins are concentrated on the sleeves for maximum impact while the raw-effect at the hem adds even more interest to a staple jacket, so this would easily go from the festive season straight to summer nights out.
