6 Perfect Influencer Outfits That Involve Sequins, Sequins and More Sequins

There’s no denying that fashion trends are seasonal, but we firmly believe you shouldn’t deny yourself just because said trend doesn’t “suit” that particular time of year. Which brings us to our point: Much like florals being associated with spring, sequins are synonymous with the festive period.

And like florals, sequins are finally breaking free from their timely constraints to become something we can wear year-round. We’ve noticed that plenty of disc-adorned pieces have already started to show up in new-in sections, but that’s not all. Influencers have also been wearing them subtly throughout the course of the summer and are starting to ramp up their sequinned ensembles as we continue into autumn.

It seems that 2019’s approach to sequins is less about high-octane glamour; instead, it concentrates on high/low styling—a sentiment shared by some of our favourite Instagrammers. Think sequinned slip dresses layered over knitwear and embellished tops worn with cycling shorts. Indeed, it seems that just about anything goes as far as accompanying pieces are concerned, but you can’t go wrong with sequins and blue denim.

Keep scrolling to see how those in the know have turned the sequin trend on its head for 2019, and then shop the items you need to recreate the looks for yourself.

Style Notes: You needn’t shy away from adding statement accessories to your sequinned attire. Instead, take the maximalist approach with layered necklaces, and then offset with a simple bottom half like cycling shorts.

Style Notes: In case you were wondering, sequins also make for apt attire for a trip to Tesco (or your preferred supermarket). In all seriousness, for a cool downtime spin, follow Fanny’s lead by layering a sequinned dress over a bright knit and finishing with flat footwear.

Style Notes: If glamour is truly what you seek, look no further than Halpern’s sequinned bandeau top, which Evangelie expertly wore with white paperbag trousers and—to take an educated guess—a pair of floss heels.
