Holiday Party Dressing : It's All About Sequins

Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle.

Bring on the Sparkle

It likely comes as no surprise that we’re talking about sequins during the holidays. But really, sequins are having a big moment, now more than ever. And for good reason.

Sequins are fun, sequins are lively, and sequins equate to celebrating, so why wouldn’t you want to wear sequins? At least that’s what we think! 😉

So, if you’re trying to figure out what to wear to your gatherings this holiday season, look no further than this trusty fabric. And the good news is it’s out there in full force. In party dresses, skirts, tops, and accessories, at, quite literally, every price point, there’s tons of sparkle and sequins online and in the stores.

Keep on scrolling for street style looks we’ve been loving, the ways Carrie has rocked her sequins, and our favorite styles you can buy right here for any holiday party you have coming up.

5 Tips for Wearing Sequins to Holiday Parties

1. Add pops of red to your holiday party look for an instant festive vibe.

2. Combine two of the hottest textures this season – sequins and velvet – for a decadent and sparkly holiday look!

3. When wearing sequins (especially rainbow ones!) keep all other parts of your outfit fairly simple. Let the sequins do all the talking.

4. Don’t be afraid to wear sequins even if it’s not for a fancy holiday party! Since sequins do all the talking (see #3), simply pair your piece with simple accessories and shoes.

5. If you do want to wear statement jewelry with your sequins, opt for one statement piece, such as bold earrings.

Style tip

When wearing sequins, you don't need too much in terms of jewelry. Stick to one statement piece, such as earrings, and let the sequins speak for themselves!
