The Meghan effect: How to wear sequins all year round

Don’t just wait untill December to wear them...

Sequins aren’t just for Christmas we say. When styled correctly, you can wear this sparkly style all year round.

HRH Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex was recently spotted donning a fabulous navy blue sequin dress at an event with her husband Prince Harry.

Always effortlessly elegant and poised, this outfit is a total winner. So we at W&H thought it was high time that sequins made a fashion appearance everyday of the year.

A simple go-to for Christmas party dressing, sequins can be seen everywhere over the festive season.

Dresses, tops, skirts and shoes, there is no fashion items that is safe from them. So why just reserve them for one month a year.

Take inspiration from the Duchess herself and let them loose the other 11 months and really stand out from the crowd.
