Trend Report: All Night Long Sequins
We don’t need an excuse to celebrate, we just need to the right cocktail dress! Glossy sequins are timeless festive pieces that trigger the party bug in us no matter what season. Here are some dazzling A-listers rocking these hot, shimmering details on the red-carpet. J’adore!
What’s your favorite way to wear it?
(1) ABLAZE: Baby bump or no baby bump, Beyoncè knows how to work it. Here she offsets her patterned sequin dress with a long blazer. Obsessed!
(2) SIMPLE SILHOUETTE: This Desperate Housewives star knows that a simple design zeros-in on a sexy silhouette. Plus, the high-powered jewel tone does all the talking.
(3) COMBO PUNCH: Don’t limit yourself to just dresses. The great thing about sequined separates is their versatility. You can mix and match skirts and tops to make them look like completely different outfits every time!
(4) SHINING STAR: Patterns are a tricky thing. Worry not! The right pattern can make the most daring and attention-grabbing statement of all.

(5) STRIPE TEASE: Can’t live without them but afraid to go all the way? Try a variegated mix of stripes in soft basic hues like black, gold and silver.
(6) CHECK PLEASE: This flattering pattern is classic and forever elegant. Although it needs little introduction, we suggest teaming it with a high-powered heel and solid-hued minaudiere.
(7) UP THE SCALE: Go for paillettes! The larger the accents, the more movement you get out of a dress. Rhinestone embellishments along a neckline always take it up a notch. Notice her lack of accessories? A dress like this speaks for itself. Case closed.
(8) FAIRY TALE: Make like Taylor and reach for an A-line for a playful, ladylike silhouette. The great part about a look like this is that it accentuates the waist.
