Sequin Dress Style Guide

Sequin Dress Style Guide

Sequin dresses have made a comeback since its peak in the early 2000s and they're better than ever before. Granted you may not always have an occasion to dress fancy so make it count when you do! Our sequin dress style guide shares some top celeb looks and how to take your styling to the next level.

YOUR DRESS IS THE ACCESSORY

Anne Hathaway stole the spotlight in the Golden Globe Awards in her glimmering Armani Prive all sequins dress. It even made the cut to Harper Bazaar's  top 100 red carpet looks. But here's what to note: her shimmering dress was the main accessory - notice how minimal her jewellery and clutch are? That's the secret to styling a sequin evening dress with sleeves! You can shop a similar look from our modest sequin dress collection.

KEEP IT CLASSIC 

It might be tempting to go with the trends but you'll never regret sticking to a classic look. Charlize Theron styled a stunning champagne colour sequin dress with a Hollywood inspired hairdo in 2004 and she went down for Oscars best dressed of ALL time by Vogue.

EFFORTLESS IS THE NEW GLAM

Gone are the days where slicked stack buns were cool. Everyone wants to look their best but no one wants to make it look like they're trying and nothing says effortless like beach wave curls or a loose up do. Kim Kardashian let her dress do the talking and was styled casual at the Vogue Festival.

'I WOKE UP LIKE THIS' 

Following from our point about being effortless, neutral glam goes hand in hand with a sequin fit. Soft smokey eye makeup paired with nude lipstick is always a safe bet. Just look at how effortlessly Jennifer Lopez wore this embroidered mirror mosaic long-sleeved gown AKA disco ball. You can shop a similar look with our balloon sleeve sequin evening dress
