By Eleanor Dunne, 28 October 2018
Sequins are big news this AW18, with shimmering looks aplenty that'll work for every occasion – from after-dark events (hello, party season) to even, wait for it... daytime!

To get you started, here’s our roundup of the best ways to wear sequins now. Sunglasses at the ready...
When it comes to party season, there’s nothing a sequin dress can’t do. The epitome of festive cheer, it’s a guaranteed head-turner and conversation starter, plus it looks great under the strobe lights... need we go on? For an AW18 update, swap your usual clutch for a belt bag (the hands-free benefits are going to come in handy when you’re juggling all those cocktails and canapes).
If you thought a sequin dress was just for the dancefloor, think again. Blogger Caro Daur's look makes a strong case for bringing the trend into your daytime lineup, too. Pair a high-neck, long-sleeve top with a sparkling maxi for a bold look that has some serious fashion credentials (and is perfect for when the chill sets in). Dial the look up with bold colours and high-octane add-ons for maximum impact.
When you’re looking for a pick-me-up in the cold months, disco ball-inspired trousers have got you covered. Reach for these babies on those not-in-the-mood-for-a-dress nights and pair them with a slinky cami and a longline blazer. Or, if you’re feeling daring at the weekend, throw them on with a denim jacket and white lace-up boots for a dose of fun.
