Unlike florals, sequins in spring are groundbreaking…well for SS18 anyway. Synonymous with Christmas party dresses, sequins have been softened for spring/summer. It makes sense that glittering embellishment should work so well for spring; after all doesn’t a sequin shimmer better in the sunshine? This trend is all about downplaying the intrinsic glam factor associated with sequins, so consider a move away from gold and red tones to more sugary, pinky, lighter tones. If you want to embrace the graceful prettiness of summer sequins, read on.
Shorts can be a difficult one to pull off (especially after a certain age) but this white sequin pair is cut just below the knee, lending them a more grown-up feel. With the longer length and subtle sequins, these shorts are a perfect alternative to trousers for the office. Match with a T-shirt and this season’s on trend super blazer for a unique look.

This sequinned embellished kaftan should be a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. The simplicity of a sheer kaftan has been invigorated with a splash of sequins, and the result is a transitional piece that can be worn over a fifties-style swimsuit on the beaches of Ibiza or as an ideal summer cover-up on a city break.

Rainbow tinted sequins reign supreme this spring. If you adore this Rixo blouse as much as we do, then note to self; it also comes in a dress.

Incorporating sequins into your outerwear is a fun way to inject a bit of glamour into your spring wardrobe, without being too chintzy. I love the scattering of florals thrown into the mix.

Muted hues add the midas touch to SS sequins. The bubble gum tones of this skirt, sprinkled with a brilliance of sequins, exude femininity. This skirt is sure to sparkle bright in the sunlight.
