If you’re looking for a statement style this season, look no further than summer sequins.

While the shimmering looks might be more commonly associated with Christmas party fun, there’s a sparkling outfit for every occasion this summer.

For laid back weekends, try teaming a cropped sequin vest with embellished shorts like these from Peacocks. 

Model wears: Sequin top, £23, Bershka. Shorts, £22, Peacocks. Earrings, £14.99, Pilgrim

Oversized sequins like these are having a serious fashion moment.

While bigger than regular sequins, paillette styles slightly more subtle than traditional sequins and cast a gentle shine.

The iridescent colour on this racer back dress from Bershka will offer a delicate twinkle.

Model wears: sequin dress, £30, Bershka

If head to toe glitz is too much, try dressing down your paillette sequin pieces.

Pair a shiny silver skirt with a casual logo t-shirt or layer a sheer embellished top over a pastel coloured silk dress for a nod to the trend.

Remember that for summer it’s chic to swap colourful glittering looks for washed out pastel shades.

Summer is the time to experiment with your style.

Try layering shimmering sequins with different fabrics such as tulle and chiffon.

Adding a sheer pink dress over a rainbow holographic sequin dress immediately gives the look a bohemian vibe and tones down the sparkle from sparking party to shimmering chic.

Pale pastel styles will look great with sun kissed skin this summer.

Look for styles in mint green, pale blues and shimmering nudes to complement holiday skin.

A sparkling slip dress is an easy way to try the sequin trend – Primark, Motel and Oasis all have versions of this 90s fashion classic that has made a comeback recently.
