The One Sequin Piece You Really Need To Own

‘Tis the season to be sparklin’, especially in these...

Santa, sleigh bells, sparkles… some things just go with Christmas, and sequins are definitely one of them.

After all, it’s the only time of the year you can wear enough bling to be seen from space in and no one (not even your out-of-touch boss) can bat an eye. And given the fact Internet searches for sequin skirts up a colossal 550%, we’re guessing you agree.

However, thanks to their often-miniscule length, sequin skirts are polarizing for 99% of us; a mini skirt is one thing but covered in dazzling discs? Daunting doesn’t cut it. But, thanks to a new crop of calf-length styles, these party pleasers just got way more wearable.

With a super-flattering, A-line shape and a hemline that hits below the knee, these glittering incarnations offer all the glamour of their shorter little sisters but with a more sophisticated vibe overall.

Don’t be fooled though; these midis are anything but frumpy- try wearing yours with a long sleeve crop top or a vampy lace blouse for a worthy party ensemble.

Blessed with legs-up-to-here? Velvet flats are where it’s at. Otherwise, we recommend lengthening your frame with dancefloor-ready block heels. Ready, steady, twirl.
