Shine on! Summer sequin must-haves from Asos, River Island and New Look
Shimmer in this season’s summer sequins
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.

Shimmer in this season’s must-haves
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
Shimmer in a silver sequin skirt this summer
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.
