Sequins dresses are designed for one sole purpose—to razzle and dazzle. If there is a hierarchy of dresses, sequins dresses will easily make it to the top. We meant it in such a way that if you own one, or dreamt of owning one, then you are a true blue fashion-loving girl and is way above other girls when it comes to fashion taste. In fact, it is safe to say that any fashionista or glamour girl will have at least one sequined dress. Sequins dresses are THE ultimate dress that every girl dreams of owning.
How to Choose Sequins Dresses
There are different kinds of sequins dresses. If you do not have the keen eye for fashion when shopping, you will end up with a gaudy, tacky, cheap-looking sequins dress. We are pretty sure that is not the kind of dress you want. To look glamorous and fashionable and not the other way around is what sequins dresses are meant for. So the big question is—how do you choose the right sequins dress?
When choosing a sequin dress, bear this in mind---make sure the sequined dress just flaunts one or two assets at a time. What this means is a micro-mini, ultra short, sparkly dress with cleavage-exposing cut, derriere-hugging fit and back-exposing design is NOT really a good choice. In fact, if you see one on the rack, run away from it as fast as you can. With that description, even without seeing the actual dress, we will say it probably is tacky and tasteless. Make a mistake of wearing one, and you will probably be mistaken for something you would not want to be mistaken for.
A well-designed sequined dress bespeaks of elegance and exquisite taste. The cut of the dress makes a big difference in the selection process. If you have an amazing, well-toned back and legs to show off, a sequins dress with long sleeves, bare back and slightly above the knee cut is a great dress for you. To show-off fabulous arms, a short-sleeved or sleeveless sequins dress is a perfect choice. If your chest is your best asset, opt for long-sleeved, cleavage-showing, long or short sequins dress. Again, the key here—flaunt one or two assets at a time.
When to Wear Sequins Dresses
Contrary to popular belief, sequins dresses are not just for a formal, dress-up affair, nor are they just for red carpets or awards night. In fact, sequined-dress-loving girls wear sequins dress on movie nights or date nights.
Sequins dresses are so versatile that you can wear them not just for occasion dressing but for a fun, night out as well. In fact, the versatility associated with sequins dresses is so incredible that with just a well-designed sequin dress, you can actually shift from casual to formal and vice versa, instantaneously. All it takes is an intelligent choice of articles of clothing or accessories to go with it.
How to Wear Sequins Dresses
Depending on the look you are aiming for, there are many different ways to wear sequins dresses. Sequins dresses, like any other dresses, vary in length. You can wear a sequins dress either casually or formally. For a casual dinner with friends or a fun outing in town, throw in a more basic article of clothing, such as colorful leggings, tights or a good pair of jeans. Finish the look with a classy belt (preferably plain and not sparkly) on top of the dress.
For a more formal yet not strictly formal occasion, such as a girl’s night out, or a cocktail party, you can opt for short sequins dresses. If you have the legs to flaunt, go right ahead and do so. Go for bare legs if you want. We are a believer of if you have it, flaunt it.
For a strictly formal event, such as a prom night, awards night or gala, there is a wide variety of choices for long sequins dresses or gowns. You can wear them as is or with a pair of gloves or a fancy scarf.
What Accessories to Wear With Sequins Dresses
All the sparkles and glam in sequins dresses speak for themselves. In fact, that’s flaunting or statement all together. Wearing a sparkly sequin dress is like wearing a huge box of jewelries. So wearing extravagant, flashy look-at-me jewelry is just plain overkill. When choosing what jewelries to wear with your sequin dress, opt for simple, toned-down pieces.
Rule of thumb when accessorizing sequins dresses: whether you are selecting shoes, belts, jewelry, jacket, handbag and other accessories to go with your sequin dresses, if you can, choose anything other than another sequined or sparkly piece. The simpler the accessories you choose, the better.
