Nothing makes a statement like a sequined dress. Bright, eye-catching, and sparkly, you’ll have all eyes on you in this ensemble. However, it’s important to select and style your sequined dress so that you are getting attention for the right reasons. By selecting a flattering sequined dress and styling it properly, your outfit will sparkle just right.
1. Pick a dress with a simple cut. Sequins make a big statement. Let the sequins do the talking, not a plunging V-neck or an asymmetrical hem. There are plenty of styles with a “simple” design, so explore! You may opt for a strapless dress, a basic shift dress, a dress with a simple racer back, a t-shirt dress, a dress with spaghetti straps, and so on! When it comes to the cut, just remember that less really is more. Keep it basic!
2. Find a sequined dress that fits your frame. You might be able to get away with a little black dress that bunches up a bit in the front or hangs a little off of your backside, but a sequined dress should fit like it was made for you. Because all eyes are going to be on you, you want to make sure your dress is doing you favors! Find a dress that hits you in all the right places and hangs just right
3.Green Sequin Dress.
This dark green sparkly dress from For Love & Lemons is extremely flattering for every figure, with a mini length that adds some sultriness. Dark green is a classic shade for party sparkly dresses, so it’ll be a staple in your closet for years to come. You can buy it from Shopbop.
4. Make sure the dress fits you right! Many sparkly dresses tend to be on the tighter side of things, and it is easy to notice when the dress bunches up weirdly or sags loosely anywhere on the body. If you can, try sequin dresses on before you buy them to ensure a perfect fit. These days there are also a lot of sequin dresses with wrap designs or draped silhouettes where the fit is much more forgiving, so that’s another option.
5. Choose an all-sequin dress in one color. If you want a dress that is covered entirely in sequins, stick to one color and one color only. A sequin dress will make you stand out, but a patterned or multi-color sequin dress just becomes an eyesore. Whether your dress is black, silver, gold, red, or pink… choose one and stick to it!
BONUS: You can definitely enjoy just a touch of shine. Sequined or glittery accessories can brighten up any outfit. You can rock glitter heels or flats with a monochrome look, or you can add a touch of drama with a sparkly purse or belt.
