How to Wear Sequins Right

Here are a few tips that will help and guide you in choosing the right sequins dress.

Sequins are mainly meant for evening wear, but that doesn’t mean that you have to stick to that. You can try bright colors like our celebs for events and functions in the day time and play with safe colors such as black and silver for the evenings.

There are many online stores such as THE ICONIC where you can find suitable dresses for your needs. THE ICONIC is famed Australian shopping portals with more than 500 brands.

While you are wearing sequin styled dresses, it is advised that you move away from accessories. There is no need for large danglers and necklaces that come with huge detailing. The idea is to keep the focus on the dress.

For the makeup, you need to opt for shine and shimmer. The eye shadow and lip color need to shine in the right way, putting more attention to the dress color and style. For your hair, you need to be focused on the right style such as ponies or simple parlor straight hair for an even look. Soft curls also look decent, but try and avoid extreme perming or too curly hair.
