How to Wear Sequins this Spring 2018

Posted on November 27, 2017 by Molly Hannelly

This Spring 2018, sequins were in every collection. From small sequins, to behemoth sequins, to casual sequins, there are so many different ways to wear this sparkly trend. Let's take a look at how you can apply sequins to your wardrobe this Spring 2018.

Casual

Although sequins tend to be evening attire, for cocktail parties and dancing the night away, designers started breaking the sequin binary and utilizing them on a variety of garments. Au Jour Le Jour shows off work-appropriate sequins with a blinding button up, while Bottega Veneta demonstrates athleisure with a sequined jumpsuit. Giamba's sequined mini skirt pairs perfectly with a t-shirt, ideal for going to concerts, while Manish Arora's sequin dress is great for first dates to bowling allies or coffee shops. Redemption designed a sequined, buffalo-plaid, button up, the perfect shirt for the girlfriend of a partying lumberjack.
