It might be the season of joy, but today was an emotional one for Ruth Langsford and Eamon Holmes as they presented Friday’s episode of This Morning for the very last time. In a controversial move, their slot is being taken up by Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary in the new year.
But despite the drama, Ruth more than looked the part in a shimmering gold sequin dress. Available now at M&S for just £41.30 (was £59) it features a deep V neckline, floaty sleeves and a swishy hemline. Just the kind of dress we need for sashaying our way around the living room. The fabric is super stretchy too - perfect for sneaking in an extra mince pie.

Sizes are selling out fast though in both regular and long, so you really will need to move fast (or join the waiting list) to avoid missing out.
Just in case you’re not quite speedy enough (it really is flying off the virtual shelves!) we’ve rounded up the very best of all of M&S’ sequin pieces for your browsing pleasure. There are some real bargains to be had too, as M&S have slashed the prices of selected pieces ahead of the Boxing Day sales.
You’ve got until 6pm on Wednesday 23rd December to get your next day delivery orders in, so there’s plenty of time to upgrade your outfit ahead of the big day.
Best M&S sequin pieces to shop now
M&S Collection Sequin V-Neck Midi Tea Dress
Christmas parties might be going virtual, but that doesn't mean you can't still look and feel fabulous from home. This sequin number is ticking all our boxes.
M&S Autograph Sequin Long Sleeve Shirt
Autograph is one of M&S' more premium collections, and the feel and weight of this gorgeous sequin skirt is reflected in the higher price tag. We'll be wearing ours with black jeans and a slick of red lipstick.
M&S Collection Sequin Midi Straight Skirt
Easy to dress up or down, this sequin midi will look just as good with a Christmas jumper and fluffy slippers as it will with a silky cami and strappy heels.
M&S Collection Sequin Knee Length Shift Dress
We thought this dress was a steal at the original price of £45, but at £31.50 we can hardly believe our luck. The classic shift shape will never date.
M&S Autograph Sequin Pleated Midi Skirt
What could be prettier than a feminine pleated midi skirt? One that's covered in sequins, that's what. The gorgeous copper shade really catches the light.
M&S Collection Sequin Crew Neck Short Sleeve Top
Taking the classic t-shirt and giving it a festive refresh, we love the combination of laid-back shape and eye-catching sequins. Wide sleeves and a crew neck keep it comfy.

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
