index How to Style a Sequin Dress ?

 It can be confusing and difficult to think of what shoes and jewelry to match with sequin dresses. It’s because sequins have a world of their own. You have to bear in mind that a sequin dress has two important characteristics. First they’re attention grabbers, in love with the limelight. And second, sequined fabric loves the silhouette of its wearer. Lighting and the curves bring out the glamour and sexiness out of it. With these in mind, here are some useful tips that will help you decide ‘how to accessorize a sequin dress’ or what shoes and accessories to wear with sequin dress’.

What Shoes to Match with Sequined Dress:

You have to be careful not to wear shoes that will steal the glamour out of your dress. The key to balancing the act is to not overdo it and don’t wear too much sequins from top to bottom. Here are some shoe styles that look great with them.

1. Strapped heels seem to be the favorite of sequin dresses. Simple one toned or subtle hued strapped sandals always look great with them.

2. For full gold sequin dress, a pair matching gold heels or open toe pumps should look perfect on any night party.

3. Do not wear shoes with loud details or colors.

4. Choose shoes that have the same color or hue with your dress color. Gold sequin dress to gold shoes, silver to silver or gunmetal .

5. For colored sequin dresses, wear shoes with lighter tone. For example, you’ll look sassy and sweet in flesh colored or light pink heels with your rose colored sequin dress.

6. If you don’t want to wear same color with your shoes, black heel pumps always work, even for sequin dresses with multi colors.

7. Wear shoes that are either shiny, in silk or satin. Texture is the key to subtly balance your look with sequin dresses.

8. You can wear high-cut suede heeled boots for that trendy rocker look. If you’re wearing a silver sequin dress, choose darker tone suede boots, like grey or black.

9. Always pair your black sequin dress with black shoes.

10. You can invoke the roman goddess look with a gold sequin dress and strapped roman style sandals.
