How to style a sequin dress?
The prospect of wearing sequins can seem quite daunting, but you can ease yourself in gently with a blush
or nude coloured mesh dress delicately embellished with sequins. Once your confidence has grown then bring out the big guns with the sequin patterned, beautiful floral pieces, or bodices & skirts given sequin detailing. Always tone done the rest of your outfit with more subdued colour tights and shoes as well as a light cardigan to casually throw over.

Subtle metallic leather sandals in silver or gold would work out really well to take your dress through to an evening engagement.
