SEQUINS To Suit E’rybody
’Tis the season to be sparklin’, especially in these shimmering midis
Santa, sleigh bells, sparkles… some things just go with Christmas, and sequins are definitely one of them. After all, it’s the only time of the year you can wear enough bling to be seen from space and no one (not even your out-of-touch boss) can bat an eye. And given the fact that Internet searches for sequin skirts are up a colossal 550 per cent, we’re guessing you agree. However, thanks to their often-miniscule length, sequin skirts are polarizing for 99 per cent of us; a mini skirt is one thing but covered in dazzling discs? Daunting doesn’t cut it. Don’t be disheartened, though – thanks to a new crop of calf-length styles, these party pleasers just got way more wearable. With a super-flattering A-line shape and a hemline that hits below the knee, these glittering incarnations offer all the glamour of their shorter little sisters but with a far more sophisticated vibe. These midis are anything but frumpy – try wearing yours with a long-sleeved crop top or a vampy lace blouse for a worthy party ensemble. Blessed with legs up to here? Velvet flats are where it’s at. Otherwise, we recommend lengthening your frame with some dance-floor-ready block heels. Ready, steady, twirl.
