Christmas Trend: Sequins

Anna Wintour adds sequins to a two-piece and Kristen sparkles in Elie Saab


Christmas is almost upon us, and this year it feels like sequins are everywhere.  This party season, it’s time to stand out and invest in some sequins for your wardrobe! Dolce and Gabbana, Chanel and Diana Von Furstenberg are all embracing this shimmering trend which will definitely get you noticed. With all the designer numbers out there, it’s no surprise a number of celebrities have been spotted in gorgeous embellished gowns, from the likes of Kristen Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow, even Anna Wintour has added a touch of sequin to her usual two piece suit.


But while I can only dream of owning a piece of Chanel, other High street brands are following suit and making sure we all can have our very own glittering number this Christmas.



It’s a trend that you can wear in many different ways, whether you want full on sequin domination or a more subtle take, the options are out there. From floor length gowns to sparkly party dresses and even converse, you can be right on trend this season in your own unique way.

Topshop have an array of items which will be sure to please anyone wanting their own sequin fix. This gorgeous knitted gold sequin jacket is perfect for the cold winter nights. Paired with minimal accessories and a little black dress, the gold sequins would speak for themselves. For only £70 this jacket can wow in the evening and day, by simply adding a skinny pair of jeans, simple vest and matching gold heels.


Another high street brand using gold sequins is River Island. This long sleeve gold maxi dress in an absolute bargain recently reduced to £60.00 at ASOS (and now sold out in River Island at £50.00). This maxi dress is pure glamour and sophistication, with a high neckline at the front, long sleeves and tight fitting silhouette, this dress will definitely wow this party season. When you turn round, the simple cut out detailing and side split shows just the right amount of skin. This dress looks designer in every way and at this price tag you could fool anybody in to thinking you were wearing one of Gabbana’s creations.


If you’re thinking, ‘I could never pull that off!’ then fear not because its not just dresses and jackets that are being bedazzled with sequins. You can work this trend with almost any accessory. ASOS have these absolutely lust worthy sandals for just £20.00, in a bright turquoise colour with an open toe design; these shoes are another fun way to wear the sequin trend. If bags are more your preferred accessory then this mutli-coloured sequined clutch from Zara is an easy way to brighten up any outfit. Priced at £29.99, this little clutch will make a big difference to your outfit.


This party season stand out in a shining, sparkly trend that’s fun, festive and sure to put a smile on your face.
