Sequins return every year as the festive season begins and the good news is, you can wear them and still look incredibly luxe and sophisticated. The trick is to team this all-out glamorous look with a more casual fabric to give it an edge and so that you carry the appeal of ‘look at me’ rather than`Christmas Tree.
What better fabric than denim?…
Team L.K Bennett’s stunning Jazz Sequin Evening Dress, £345.00 in gold with a denim blend jacket like this DRKSHDW BY RICK OWENS Biker denim and leather jacket, £725, (below). With a denim body and leather and wool sleeves, it sums up the smart-casual look perfectly and adds a touch of rock to an otherwise show-stopping ladylike dress.
Take a dazzling sequin top like the MICHAEL MICHAEL KORS GUNMETAL LONG SLEEVE SEQUIN DRAPE NECK TOP, £95.00 and pair with metallic jeans for festive sheen. These 2ND DAY SASSIE METALLIC FOIL SKINNY JEANS, £159.00 have a distressed metallic foil effect that bring their otherwise timeless design perfectly up-to-date. Avoid choosing tones that are too similar and choose shades that flatter and work together. Jeans in a darker shade to the top work well – you don’t want to resemble a bauble.
If you choose your main item of clothing in denim, such as this STUD DENIM LONG SLEEVE DRESS, £55 you can afford to go more out-there with your accessories. The Kardashian Kollection gold sequin purse, £25 and PROJECTD LONDON DAKOTA FITTED GOLD SEQUIN JACKET, £288.00 will add extra festive razzle dazzle.
