Sequins and Christmas just go together, and I love party season dressing with all my heart. As we approach the season of work Christmas parties and nights out with friends, I’ve been searching for the best sequin dresses for you lovely HELLO! readers to hang in your wardrobe and wear for years to come because sequins never go out of style.
There’s always a time and a place for a sequin dress – whether you’re looking for a sequin mini, maxi, midi, midaxi or ball gown. Quite frankly, whatever style you choose, you simply cannot go wrong with a bit of shimmer and shine. In fact, I spoke to fashion designer Nadine Merabi who told me: “The most flattering style of a party dress is the one that makes you feel like the incredible, unique individual you are. Fashion should empower and celebrate your body and your personality, no matter your shape or size. It’s not about fitting into a certain mould; it’s about embracing your own style and celebrating your own beauty. Your choice of a party dress should reflect your unique spirit and radiate confidence. When you feel good in what you wear, you’ll light up any room and leave a lasting impression. So, wear what makes you feel like the superstar you are, because the most flattering party dress is the one that reflects your authentic and fantastic self.”
As HELLO!‘s resident sequin obsessive (ask anyone!), I wanted to scour the virtual rails for some of the best sparkliest frocks for you all to enjoy.
The shops are full of partywear options right now – from cool sequin trousers to chic sequin blazers and even sequin midi skirts – the glitzier the better if you ask me. You can’t beat a sequin party dress though. Easy enough to style as well! Whether you opt for a pair of strappy sandals or knee high boots or sexy stilettos, it takes seconds to get ready.
How I chose the best sequin dresses
- New In: I’m not here to show you dresses you’ve probably seen before. I have scoured all of the new-in sections on my favourite fashion brands to find the latest and most exciting sequin dress for your big event.
- Modern Styles: This is a modern edit of sequin dresses. It’s an edit that showcases various styles and for various ages. Though, in my opinion, fashion is age-less and sequins can suit anyone of any age.
- Cost-Per-Wear: I don’t want you to waste your money on a sequin dress you’ll only wear once. The beauty of sequins? They never go out of style.
