One of the best things about sequin dresses is that they are a statement all on their own, but there is also plenty of space to experiment with different techniques and styles. Opt for a silver gown with geometrically placed sequin formations for a dynamic glitter that will catch the light beautifully as you move across the dance floor. Dress with wrap-up leather heels and a coordinating silver clutch for a seamless look that is ideal for prom night or special evenings out on the town. 

Get playful with texture and look for a sequin gown that experiments with negative space. Side waist cutouts are a beautiful way to sculpt your silhouette and highlight your figure. Choose a strapless gown with a fitted bodice, side cutouts and a full, floating skirt in a deep noir tone – studded all over with beautiful and delicate sequins. Dress with contrast cream and white accessories for a cool and chromatic look, or opt for a monotone feel with a black clutch, subtle silver jewellery and your favourite pair of pointed-toe black leather pumps. 

For cocktail hour, birthday parties or a stunning look for an evening of dancing, a sequin studded mini dress is undoubtedly the way to go! Embrace the 2000s trend with a bold and bright-toned magenta mini dress cut in a form-tracing mini silhouette. Spaghetti straps and a cowl neckline will only add to the fun and playful nature of this piece! The sequins will move and fold against the soft contours of your piece, making for a stunning and unique party look that is sure to turn heads.
