11. WEARING A SEQUINED DRESS
If you’re going to go for a dress covered in bling, from top to bottom, opt for one that comes in simple silhouette. It’s no need to pick overly trendy style when your dress is already fully sequined. You also need to stick with one color of sequins (either subtle or vivid shimmering sequins) or sequins with patterns as long as it goes with a balanced small color family that’s definitely complimentary. Plus, find a dress that fits you perfectly. Make sure to keep your lines simple when you feel like you want to shine.
Moreover, know that this fully sequined dress mostly worn only for special occasions and evenings out. However, you’ll get more use out of your dress if you find casual ways to style it. Throw on a denim jacket, textured tights and motorcycle boots for dinner with friends, or slip a dark T-shirt over your frock and use the bottom portion of the dress as a skirt.
Tips: When wearing a sequined dress, because sequins are already bold and eye-catching, you should allow the dress to stand on its own by keeping the rest of your look more low-key since loading up on statement accessories easily can make you appear over-dressed. Just keep your look simple and understated
Go super subtle with dainty jewelries and accessories – nice and simple black pumps or ankle booties are the safest footwear choice. Don’t pair your dress with a clutch and shoes in matching sequins or rhinestones, and avoid large, heavy jewelries. Delicate stud earrings are a better match with a sequin dress than a dramatic chandelier style. A simple pendant necklace with a thin chain works well than a statement necklace.
All in all, now that you know that sequins are not just for party nights, we hope you will show them some daylight. Especially for subtle sequins, they are great for day wear, but obviously you can wear more striking sequin if worn properly. Just don’t get carried away with the glam factor. Remember that less can be more. Sure, you want to shine this holiday season, but don’t forget that there are plenty of subtle ways to do it
