Nothing makes a statement like a sparkly dress, but how to style a sequin dress & accessorize it correctly is the key to rocking a classy look.
The #1 rule to follow is that sequins are bold and eye-catching, so let your dress stand on its own. If you keep the rest of your look lowkey, your dress will keep the focus on you!
How to Style a Sequin Dress: Choose a sequin dress in one color only
You’ll stand out just because your dress is sequin. But a patterned of multi-colored sequin dress can be an eyesore & ruin your look.
Choose your favorite sequin color & then stick with it!
