No longer reserved for after dark, street-style stars and celebs alike are throwing out the rule book and integrating sequins into their everyday wardrobes.
The spring 2018 runways were awash with the dazzling embellishment, but the current crop of shimmering styles is more relaxed than razzle dazzle, and will earn their keep in any wardrobe.
So how do you wear the high-shine trend without looking completely over-the-top? With a little know-how, it’s easy – follow these rules and you’ll be the best dressed on the street in no time.
1. Sequinned separates are a safe starting point for beginners - team high-shine tops with black jeans and sneakers for a cool off-duty look, or pair with a minimalist mini or pencil skirt come cocktail hour.
2. To add a dose of shine to your wardrobe, look for pieces with sporadic sequins - thanks to the clean-line cut and small-scale, high-shine embellishment can be dialed down into more casual territory.
3. Pair colour-blocked accessories with sequins to ensure your daywear is on point.
4. If you want to wear a fully embellished piece, look for pieces with larger sized sequins (such as this Emporio Armani coat) to bring the shimmer factor down a notch.
