There’s something about the holiday season that makes us want to dress like a disco ball, and sequins serve as our preferred method for doing so. (We choose to go about it in good taste, of course, meaning we opt for clean lines and classic silhouettes.)
For a showier moment, we love a shimmering dress with pared-back accessories like a satin pouch and simple sandals—classic. If not a head-to-toe look, tempering a sparkly top with denim is also a favorite. What’s cooler than a one-shoulder silhouette with high-waist jeans and a killer party shoe? A simple T-shirt tucked into glittering high-waist trousers is likewise achingly chic.
Reaching beyond gold and silver is important—choose glimmering black for subtlety, or colorful sparkle for a bolder moment. If you go the vibrant route, be sure to keep your accessories and beauty streamlined—you don’t want to OD on the dazzle.
Here, discover our favorite eye-catching pieces to wear for the party circuit—all under $200. Shine bright in style.
