There are two types of people right now: those who are already in the festive swing and playing Mariah Carey from the rooftops and those who are not quite there yet. If you’ve already got the party playlist on, then you may be ready to embrace sequins in all their sparkly glory. If you’re sticking to a classic cold-weather wardrobe, you may need some gentle encouragement to embrace sparkles. And this is where we come in.
The sequin (most likely midi) skirt has been making an appearance on our Instagram feeds lately, and we are here for it. An inevitably cool way to step into party-season dressing is to follow the laid-back London look. Similar to wearing a dress with trainers, wearing a sequin skirt with a casual chunky knit, a humble cardigan or a polo top is the way to style it this time around. It’s all about looking like you’re on the cusp of asking Alexa for a Christmas jingle, without actually doing so.
Ready to try out relaxed sequin outfits? We’ve rounded up the skirts you’ll want to take as a plus-one to any daytime or after-dark event and the ways to wear them.
