It’s never too early to start thinking about your Christmas party dress. Sequin dresses, LBDs, floating maxi gowns, ballgowns, lace prom dresses – they’re all already on the racks, just waiting to be snapped up for the biggest party night of your year.
So, in the next few weeks, we’ll share the Twelve Dresses of Christmas, starting today with Twelve Sequin Dresses.
Sequins say festive sparkle like nothing else. You can go full on sequinned glamour with bold colours, keep it neutral with lighter tones, or pick a dress that has just enough sequin embellishment to qualify as a party frock!
Black and gold is a winning combination this season, with that Art Deco vibe that’s still in, thanks to the Great Gatsby film earlier this year. Sequin stripes in black and gold look great, as do scattered sequin patterns.
Maybe you want to keep it lighter, with gold tones, or pastel sequins, or perhaps tightly stitched sequin patterns like this Butterfly by Matthew Williamson dress in a lovely shimmery blue.

Sequins work brilliant in bright colours. Go for a show-stopping party frock in bold pink, festive red, or coloured sequin stripes! Are you brave enough?
And if you aren’t ready to embrace sequins all over, choose something that just has a nod to the party look, with a sequin trim, sequin bodice, or subtle sequins on an LBD.
