Wearing Sequins 3 Ways

Bling Business 

A dazzling pencil skirt works well with knits and tuxedo style jackets.

Shine at weekends 

Introduce some wow into your weekend look with a sequin t-shirt - great with jeans, biker jackets and trainers.

Party Sparkle 

For certain occasions only all over sequins  will do. Style sparkling dresses with sky-high heels.

The Modern Way To Master The Party Dressing

Asymmetric Hemlines, high-shine fabrics and Western-inspired heels are a sure hit

If sequins are not your thing here are some other stylish alternatives:

Wide-leg trousers teamed with a ruffled blouse

Winter nights velvet, with killer heels and red lipstick

Sharply tailored two-piece suits with minimal accessories work from office to party

Embellishments

Jumpsuits are party heroes; nipped-in waists and wide legs are flattering and add the right amount of glamour.

Add retro into styling

70’s – Jumpsuits plus glitter and textured cover ups

80’s – Power pieces, sequin minidresses and shoulder length earrings

90’s – Slip dresses, feathers and diamantes

There’s perhaps never been a better time to add a sequin dress to your party wardrobe. 


For Men

Whether it’s office drinks, a formal event, or something decidedly more chilled out, finding the right side of smart-casual is a well-honed skill. 

From the office bash to a big night out with friends, thinking about what to wear to a festive do can pose quite the dilemma, especially since parties can be all over the show when it comes to dress code.

Chinos are great as they can be easily dressed up or down. Pair them with some trainers and a denim jacket for a relaxed vibe, or with a buttoned-up shirt to go more formal. 

We all love a leather jacket and think every man should own one. Wear your leather jacket over a thick warm jumper and some jeans or chinos to finish.

The key here is knowing just how to stand out in a sea of boring black tuxedos.

If you want to wear a suit then make sure it’s not the one you wear to work. Instead, opt for a relaxed alternative in grey or seasonal hues like navy, boozy red and green that will grab just the right amount of attention. 

Alternatively, if you really want to stand out from the crowd then velvet should be your go-to.
