The holiday inspiration series continues! Today features a sparkly, gold sequin dress from Eire Designs!
I love this dress because it exemplifies how to use sequins – in the Irish dance world and the real world. Keeping the sequins one classic color, the sequins add shimmer and dimension without taking over the look. Gavin also perfectly complemented the sequins with just a few key touches of design. My hunch is that it hadn’t finished it’s blinging at this picture, but I would think you would just add some key pops of sparkle to accent the sequins. However, if you’re going all out with sequins, you need to let the sequins steal the show.
As I’ve mentioned in my earlier posts, the holidays are the perfect time to break out the sequins in your outfits. There are some ways to rock them as accents, but now is the perfect time to take the plunge and rock a dress with sequins as the main feature. Like in Gavin’s dress, the key to pulling off sequins is to keep the rest of the outfit simple, with just key pops. Also, look for a more neutral or classic color like gold or silver rather than a bright pink.
This dress from ASOS lets the sparkles be the main feature by keeping the cut simple and limiting any other design. The sequins speak loudly enough – no need to crowd them! I also love the long sleeve style which makes it a little more tame – a nice contrast to the bold sequins. Bonus – you’ll be warmer while running to those Holiday parties!
What do you think? Planning to wear sequins this holiday season?
Stay Fashionable, Feisers!
