How To Wear Sequins

We love a good sparkle here at w&h – so much so, that we’ve dedicated several galleries on the sparkliest fashion pieces, everything from embellishments to nail polish. But there’s nothing quite like a good sequin to make your whole outfit dazzle.

The sequin is synonymous with party season, and there’s no better time to indulge in a bit of sparkle. As if we needed an excuse! But while the rails are teeming with sequinned buys, sometimes it can be daunting to find something that doesn’t look, well, a little ridiculous. From the shortest of skirts to the lowest cut tops, sequins tend to grace some questionable items.

But sequins CAN be sophisticated, if styled properly or worn in the right cuts. A failsafe way to keep your look classy is to embrace a monochrome palette. Coloured sequins can be hard to pull off, especially if you’re trying to go low-key. Our reader Larissa (pictured) nails the black and white look by mixing fabrics and prints.
