Style-Delights: How To Wear Sequin Dresses

How To Wear Sequin Dresses

It is that time of the year! Holiday parties and new year celebrations - everybody is in the festive mood!  And sequin dresses can really match the festive ambiance! They are shiny, sparkly and very glamorous. They can make you look like a star and the center of attention.  But if not done correctly, they can also make you look like the magician's assistant!  Here are some guidelines to make a sequin dress work like a shimmering charm!
  • Keep the line and drape simple - Too much volume will overwhelm, and can make you look Disney-ish! (not a good look for those over 12)
  • Keep it single color -  The homogeneous sequins will not clash with your accessories and also not give the outfit that 3D effect! (also not a good look for those over 12) 
  • Metallic or deep colors work best - Gold, silver, bronze, black work best! Deep tones in plums and purple look good too.
  • Jewel tone accessories enhance the outfit - Metallic clutches and deep jewel tone accessories keep up with the sequin dresses. Too much texture difference takes away from the outfit.
Here are 3 of my sequin dress styling ideas - Gold, Black and Bronze!

Gold sequin dress with gold and topaz color accessories

Black sequin dress with emerald accessories

Bronze sequin dress with plum and amber accessories

How do you style your sequin dress?


  1. Love your holiday style tips, especially the nude pumps :)

  2. I scored a black sequined dress at Banana Republic a few years ago on major sale - and I'm dying to try it with a long cardigan! Geek chic meets party dress - it could work, right? :) What a great post - now I want some emerald earrings!
