Three ways to wear: a sequin slip dress

How to style a sequin slip dress for party season’s many different events

7 December 2023

With party season upon us, we asked our talented Sloane Street styling team for their expert advice on how to make one of the season’s biggest eveningwear trends – a sequin slip dress – work for three different occasions. 

Whether it’s the annual Christmas knees-up with your colleagues, a night going out-out with your besties or a more low-key occasion, here are three versatile ways to wear a shimmery black sequin slip dress. 

And, if you’d prefer to have a professional by your side as you’re styling your party-season looks, you can book an appointment with one of our friendly and unfailingly fashion-savvy stylists here.

Look 1

Casually sparkle in the slip dress of the season, paired with simple dance-all-night trainers and a cream cable-knit sweater for an elevated day-to-night look. Just whip off the knit when it’s time to shake your groove thing.

Look 2

A combination of sequins and smart tailoring is a no-fail answer to your party season day-to-night dilemmas. Make sequins work for your 9-to-5 by teaming with a boss-lady blazer that can effortlessly segue into festive after-work drinks. Shiny black pumps and a versatile reversible belt pull everything together.

For a night on the town, add a little rough-and-ready sass to the all-out glamour of sequins by adding a classic biker jacket. Party in pretty punk, pairing the Joelene sequin dress with a leather biker and boots for a night on the town.
