It seems as though we can't move an inch on Instagram without being confronted by a sequined skirt. Apparently, the fashion crowd is forgoing the traditional party dress this season in favor of "look at me" sequin-covered numbers, and we are so here for it. It comes as no surprise that Zara is at the front line of the action, delivering a number of disco ball–inspired midi styles that were made to hit the dance floor.
These are, however, not your typical sequined skirts. While most affordable stores have opted for classic silver and gold, Zara has gone off-script with three statement-making styles that stand out from the crowd: one in check, a second in animal print, and a third in oversize fire-engine red sequins. The overall effect is seriously high-end.
From Laura Jackson to Ada Oguntodu, plenty of stylish individuals have embraced the trend. Interestingly, they have all decided to style their skirts with chunky knits, so it's clear that dressing down with casual staples is the key to making this look work. We'll be wearing ours to our holiday party with a white tee, kitten heels, and plenty of attitude. Scroll down to see the Zara skirts everyone is talking about.
Style Notes: We fell in love with this red midi the moment we saw it in the Zara showroom. Packing plenty of Jessica Rabbit vibes, the omatte-effect oversize sequins and midi length make it look like it belongs in a designer boutique.
