How To: Wear Sequins This Holiday Season Without Looking Like A Christmas Tree Decoration

Over the holiday season, we’re all attracted to a bit of sparkle; glitter ornaments, rhinestone accessories and of course sequins. But it’s often tricky to don an adorned dress without looking like something that hangs off your mantelpiece. This time of year truly tests your sartorial versatility and although wearing an all in one sequined maxi dress might be for some, we believe it’s the subtle addition to a look that really shows off your holiday style. So worry no more, were here to help you master suburb holiday style and will walk you through how to avoid looking like a tree ornament this season.

Wearing a midi skirt can be a bit of a challenge from time to time. Am I too short, and I the wrong shape, what shoes do I wear with it? This little festive look is the perfect answer. Rather than wearing boots choose a pair which reach the ankle or a pair of cute pumps, either way the small bit of your pins on show will seem elongated and elegant. This sequin midi also has patterned effect which smooths out any lumps and bumps giving you the perfectly chic holiday look that Mrs Claus would be proud of.

You ask, how on earth can I wear an all over sequined sweater without looking like a tree bauble? Well team it with some super chic accessories - that's how, and you're bound to be the envy of all fashionista's this holiday season. Markus Lupfer always gets it so right, and this season he has not failed to disappoint. This cashmere navy number with large mirror disk sequins is the perfect addition to your holiday wardrobe and will carry you all the way through to Spring.

When wearing an all over sequined dress its better to keep it in a more neutral colour. This forest green skater dress from French Connection is just what were talking about, and in such a flattering fit and flare designer to suit all body shapes. Team it with some edgy accessories and you're bound to the the prettiest Elf at the party.

So a fully sequined blazer  might be a tad too much, buts that's why we adore this black and silver number from Topshop. Oversized boyfriend bit with a touch of added glam. Keeping the colour palette neutral is the safest way to go, but whilst keeping the textures super interesting. Sequins silk, jacquard and leather - yummy!

With the temperatures plummeting well bellow freezing around this time of year mini skirts can be some what of a no go area. But not to worry. Sass & Bide have got you covered with their sheer split maxi which is sexy and practical well sort of at the same time. Teamed with more black chiffon and bold accessories to complement the pops of colour on the skirt this is one sure way to look super chic over the holiday season.
