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!
