Party Dresses: Sequins

It's that time of year's time to start thinking about those Holiday parties so this season I will bring you party dresses each Wednesday in different categories for a total deal. This week I'm starting with the ever so famous sequin dress. Sequins of course is glamorous and the it girl party dress! You can party girl it up with a sequin dress or tone it down for a casual Holiday party.

Glamorous for New Years Eve

Sequin - NYE

Think girly and sexy for this NYE. You can rock a full on sequin frock like the Alexia Admor One Shoulder Sequin Dress found at Nordstrom for $99 and the Dorothy Perkins Gold sequin sweetheart dress for $61. Or you can go for sublte look and do a little sequin bustier like the Nude Sequin Bodice Dress found at for $105. This dress has a bit of sexy appeal and surprise by having a mesh netting neckline and having the high-low skirt. When doing a gold or softer sequin pair up your look with nude or neutral colored accessories. Gold and silver sequins pop on their own so you don't want to go to bold with your accessories.

Sequins for the Casual Holiday Party

Office Party Sequin

Dorothy Perkins sequin dress, £29
Prom evening dress, £69
Oasis sequin evening dress, $145
TopShop high heel shoes, $130
Stacked heel, $35
Ankle wrap shoes, £35
Dorothy Perkins clutch bag, £10
Jacques Vert clutch hand bag, £65
Monsoon clutch hand bag, £35

Whether it's a family holiday party or an office party you can rock the sequins, just make sure to keep it dark and patterned. You don't want to look out of place so keep your dresses sophisticated. Darker the better since the sequins will make a subtle pop like the Dorothy Perkins Black sequin mesh dress for $46. This dress as the party effect but keeps it appropriate with the round neck. Remember necklines for office parties are important, you don't want to go to plungey and I would recommend staying away from strapless and small strapped dress. If you like strapless dresses or bustier topped dresses try the Black Sequin Pointelle 2 in 1 Dress ($145). This dress is a little more expensive but top of the dress makes it all worth it. The sequin pattern on the top makes it feel like a bustier top and keeps it young looking. If you want to stray away from a black dress try a dark brown caramel dress like the CARMAL LACE SEQUIN SHEER PANEL DRESS by Louche London ($110). The back of the dress is lace which adds a little sex appeal without showing to much. For these dress keep the accessories simple go neutral colors. If you want to funky it up a bit pick a shoe that has a little bit of glitter in it like the Topshop Strut Glitter Heel Platform Shoes ($130). Try to be cute and pair up little accents like bows that are in your dress with bows in your shoes.

To scared to wear a sequin dress? Then glam it up with some sequin accessories. Why not throw over a sequin cardigan over a cute little black dress or do a sequin clutch bag? These accessories can spice up any LBD or LWD or any little dress!

  7. My wife has two of those party dresses and she looks great in them

  8. O you have decided how you will look like your dream wedding dress? Some brides prefer pink accents on a white dress instead of a full pink dress. As Pink is a very romantic and feminine color is clear, most wedding dresses are using beautiful shades of pink, feminine designs. Thanks for sharing on this post.

  9. I like your collection of clothes and shoes. That red shoes is so stunning. I'm looking forward to seeing my wife wearing that. I'm wondering if tennis shoes will jive in casual dress. I guess it will look ugly.
