Typically speaking, sequins are associated with the festive times of the year, meaning it’s totally acceptable to wear a sequin dress to Christmas parties or a sequin detailed blouse to a special event, like a wedding. But what about the rest of the year? But what if you just love sequins and things?
The more you think about it, there's nothing more suitable than sequins in summer - they're basically perfect! The way sequins and things glisten in the sunshine make them the perfect decorative feature for any outfit on a sunny day. Don't listen to the status-quo which tells you that you are limited to wearing a sequin dress to a winter event - this is how you bedazzle your summer wardrobe!
For everyone who is shouting ‘yaaaas’ behind your phone screen, here are 6 ways to wear sequins in the summer.
6 Ways to Wear Sequins in Summer
- festival fashion
- Party wear
- casual looks
- sunny outfits
- accessories: sequins and things
- sequined dresses
Let's start with an obvious one: festival fashion. You can, of course, get away with wearing anything at a festival but I think sequins will make your look all the more magical. After a full day of shining brightly in the summer's sun, your outfit will transform once again throughout the night as you continue to shimmer as the LED lights bounce off the sequins. Find out more about festival fashion tips.
Incorporating sequins into an outfit does not mean you just have to wear a color-block of sequins. No no, sequins can be delicately decorated throughout a piece of clothing:
Sequins + summer clothing
Probably the most subtle way to wear sequins in the summer, as the sequins and things are used to create patterns on your summer fashion. You can wear a pair of sequined shorts with a plain and colorful t-shirt or blouse and you are set for a day hanging out in the sunshine!

Casual ways to wear sequins
If you're heading out for the day and looking for a trendy outfit then 'sequins and things' can also be a creative way to break up the double denim look. You need something bold and distracting to break up the double denim look and a cute sequin top could be the perfect way to do it.
A definite favorite. When you get the special opportunity to wear sparkles to a party you couldn't feel more dolled up. I think that means you should be able to wear a sequin dress all year long! If you want to wear a sequin dress to a summer party then choose something loose fitting (or you'll get too warm) and a summery color. Pair the dress with some denim or casual flat shoes.
