Sequins for party season are the equivalent of florals for spring: not exactly groundbreaking. What’s different this time around? The sheer abandon with which they are being put to use by our favorite cool-girl labels – and what they suggest you wear your sparkles with. Thanks to sports-inspired necklines at Ganni, streamlined silhouettes at Galvan and Tibi’s styling masterstroke (pairing show-stopping dresses with box-fresh sneakers), a sequin party dress suddenly feels like a surprising proposition. Dress your sparkles down (and make them feel far more modern) by teaming with fun accessories, ‘no makeup’ makeup and natural hair – whether that means beachy waves, a sleek bob or cascading curls. The result? Equal parts ‘un’ and ‘done’.
