Sequins add sparkle, shine and glamour to your party dress
Much has been said about sequins and their ability to bring a touch of sparkle to any outfit. Much has also been said about the potential for an overly-sequined dress to look very garish and out of place. Sequins and sparkling dresses are in fashion this season and dressing up will be all about finding the right balance between glamorous and garish and sitting safely in the middle of the scale. For some however, garish is in as celebrities in the likes of Lady Gaga inspire their own take on this trend, taking it to the absolute limit with over the top costumes and even shinier accessories.
Whether you are getting ready for a prom or a birthday party, maybe even a wedding, the occasion should ideally dictate the level of sparkle in your outfit. It is always great to stand out, but perhaps not in the wrong way; imagine showing up to a wedding dressed in your bright pink sequined mini dress! The color of sequins matter greatly while selecting your outfit so be aware of the various hues and shades which are more regularly wearable as compared with the brighter hues which may be best suited for nightclubs. White, off-white, light and dark gold, and the ever-dependable black, are all colors, which are considered as being relatively wearable to a series of occasions. Consider investing in a sequined LBD [little black dress] and a light gold one shoulder dress; these outfits are versatile, easy to accessorize, and will suit most figures.
When we think of sequins, the fact that they are available in many variants is not always an immediate thought. Round shapes in various sizes, fine to coarse glitter dust, thin lines, thick lines, patches and appliqué patterns which can be sewn on to dresses etc. the world of sequins is filled with variation and choices, and choosing the most flattering kind of sequin will play an integral role in determining the shine and glamour factor of your dress. Corset style sequin party dresses are often made from sequins which are sewn onto the the dress by hand, whereas floor length shimmering party dresses are made from sequined fabric which is often dotted with sequins that have been glued on via fabric glue for added sparkle. A number of DIY [do it yourself] sites recommend using hot glue or fabric glue to attach larger sequins and sparkling stones to a plain dress in order to turn it into a sequined party dress.
For those who like the over the top look, it is recommended to peruse the many websites which sell sequined party dresses for prom; for some reason a majority of prom dress styles involve an extremely liberal dose of sequins and sparkle! If you would rather not go down garish alley with an over the top dress, and are unsure about looking too sparkly, here is a style tip to get you started; take a minimally sequined dress in a neutral or dark color and add some sparkle to it via stick-on sequins or even a sequined brooch. You might find that you like being shiny, sparkly and glamorous!
