Some of the hottest and most challenging trends this season: sequins, sparkles and PU can look banging if you style them right. We feel you, girl – as New Year’s Eve approaches, so does the expected dress code of ‘glitter-only’, along with flashbacks of those sparkling fashion disasters you saw at last year’s party.
Whether you want to add a few subtle sequins or go full-on glistening goddess, we’ve got you covered with our style tips, babe. Read on and find out how to build the perfect glittery and sequin outfits.
Sequins Statements during SS18 Fashion Month
Michael Halpern brought the disco inferno during LFW, showing sequins head-to-toe, sequins in every colour and sequins on top of more sequins. It’s a surprise no one was blinded by all that shine. But damn, was it breath-taking.
Julien Macdonald’s collection exhibited extravagant sequin and sheer lace creations. The designer was inspired by escapism to produce modern, architectural silhouettes that stunned the crowd (and us tbh).

How to Build the Hottest Glitter & Sequin Outfits
For some chicas, glitter haunts us from the very depths of our wardrobes, with voices of dread coming from that sequin dress with the tags on (that you are yet to have the confidence to wear). But now it’s time to SLAY at any time of the day or night, whatever the occasion – just like the queen you are.
For Daytime Daydreaming
There are some sparkly tops you can wear for every occasion. Add a little pizzazz to any casual outfit and slide into our gold glitter bodysuit, complete with a black leather jacket. Whether you’re grabbing your fave caramel Frappuccino in town or slaying whilst daytime shopping, you’ll be sure to shine just the right amount. Finish the look with a pair of distressed skinny jeans and some leg-lengthening knee-high boots to stay looking classy but sassy.

For Brunch with the Girls
The key to mastering statement sequins during the day is to keep it minimal – that means choosing one key piece and then moulding the rest of your outfit around it.
Pair our berry sequin mini skirt with a long-sleeved crop top for understated daytime glam, perfect for brunching with the squad. Finish the look with some black thigh-highs and diamanté fishnet tights for a sexy twist.
Party season always brings spontaneous situations so just go wild! If you somehow end up at a bar with the gals, no fear girlfriend- you look FIERCE.
