Right now, I’m having a love affair with sequin dresses. Not just any sequin dresses, the ones absolutely covered in them so you have this dazzling texture of sparkles and colours! I’ve been scouring the net for these beauties (window shopping, if you will) on the lookout for a great bargain and a perfect dress. This look is obviously quite dressy; it’s glitzy and glamorous and you’ll look like a star but occasions where I can get all dressed up don’t come along too often so I want to get a dress I can wear more than once. I’ve rounded up my favourite sequin dresses from my favourite online shopping stores, from the cheap (that will probably fall apart once I’ve worn it a few times) to the gorgeous ones with the hefty pricetags!
1. The Outnet: Michael Michael Kors Sequined Metallic Bouclé Dress $130.00 AUD Available Here A bit exxy but more than half price off! I love the pocket details and the demure hemline. 2. Ally Fashion: Short Sleeved Sequined Bodycon Dress $34.99 AUD Available Here This is one of the ones I mentioned would only last a few wears before sequins start coming off! Decent quality but you get what you pay for and this is only a bargain $35.00. 3. Topshop: Cherry Dress by Motel $110.00 AUD Available Here The only midi dress I included… it looks like a standard black at first glance but the sequins actually reflect gorgeous multicolour! 4. Motel Rocks: Motel Criss Cross Bodycon Sequin Dress $99.00 AUD Available Here I love the mermaid colours of this! The lovely islaay posted a fab OOTD using an identical dress (with a lower backline) in iridescent green here, check that out! 5. Fashion Union: Pewter Sequin 3/4 Sleeve Fitted Dress $65.00 AUD Available Here Super glitzy with a low neckline in the back, I’d love to pair this with some tights for the cooler months. 6. Boohoo: Allie Sequin One Shoulder Bodycon Dress $75.00 AUD Available Here I think the loose one shoulder sleeve is playful and elegant and deserves to be worn with heels and a classy attitude! 7. Ally Fashion: Sequin Strap Detail Dress $34.99 AUD Available Here This is another affordable option I love. It’s shiny and polished and I love the strap details. 8. Boohoo: Selma Sequin Swing Dress $75.00 AUD Available Here I think this loose swing dress is great for the warmer months coming up, since most sequin dresses are double-lined and hold a lot of body warmth! 9. Motel Rocks: Motel Zabby Turtleneck Dress in Navy Velvet With Emerald Sequin $94.00 AUD Available Here Where to start with this one! Reflective emerald sequins over soft navy velvet in a sleek bodycon style with a high turtleneck — dazzling, interesting, different, great for winter but not in a drab winter shade. This one is my favourite by far! I definitely recommend you check these out if you have a spare minute to salivate over sparkles and glitter! Some of these are on the expensive side, which unfortunately is a by-product of a garment being covered in tiny sequins, but a gorgeous dress is really worth it if you have the spare cash. So tell me, are you loving or hating sequin dresses this season? Let me know in the comments below or on twitter @maklinamakeup! EDIT: over at missguided (one of my favourite stores ever!) you can literally just type in ‘sequins’ into the search bar and a plethora of stunning sequin dresses pops up. I didn’t include these because I love them all so much there’s no way I could fit them all in this post or narrow it down! One of my favourites from this discovery is this:
I know, I know! Look at that colour, and only $30.00 AUD too. It’s on clearance at the moment and I think it may be due to the messy, ‘distressed’ sequins look. I would have preferred this dress if I couldn’t see the black lining through it! Anyway, head over to Missguided if you’ve got a spare minute, you won’t regret it!
