everywhere, from holiday windows to Beyoncé’s BeDazzled money clutch. If you’re feeling the urge to dress like a disco ball for holiday parties this winter, you’re not alone.
The challenge with sequins, of course, is that it’s easy to tip into tacky territory. If you’re looking for a grown-up way to wear shine, the trick is to find it in fresh silhouettes, like an oversize, almost-caftan-esque dress. You can also try layering it on in small doses, like a simple chain clutch.
Whether you need a blazer to throw on over your work clothes for the office party or an all-out fancy dress, we’ve got you covered. Scroll ahead to see our ideas for wearing sparkly this season.
