Sequin dresses are the ultimate party dress. They add glitter and shine to any occasion, making the wearer stand out in a crowd. Here are some that we recommend for your next night out.

Buying a Sequin Dress

Here are some things to consider:

  • Sequin Density: One thing many people may not realize when shopping for a sequin dress is that the sequins on the dress can come in different densities. The more surface area the sequins cover, the more glittery it will appear. For a more subtle shimmer, go for a dress with fewer sequins.
  • Length: Sequin dresses come in various lengths, with the most popular being the mini dress. A sequined mini dress would be perfect for parties, holiday gatherings, or even as fun bridesmaid dresses. However, sequin dresses also come in maxi and midi styles. These would be great for more formal events.
  • Sleeves: Like any dress, you can find sequined dresses that are sleeveless or have short sleeves, three-quarter sleeves, or long sleeves. Keep in mind that the sequined fabric may feel heavier when deciding if you want your dress to have sleeves or not. Going sleeveless could also leave your arms open to rubbing against the sequins on the body of your dress as well.
