It took a little while to find this silver sequin dress, but once I saw it I knew it was “the one” for this NYE post. The mod silhouette and dramatic sleeves caught my attention and I knew I wanted to have fun with this dress. I mean, how can you not be happy wearing a bunch of silver sequins, am I right? Basically this silver sequin dress is the Times Square ball in human form.
I love the contrast between the (very) mini length and oversized bell sleeves on this silver sequin dress. To give it some shape I added a belt, but you totally don’t need to if you don’t want. It has a shift shape that hangs straight when you don’t belt it. For reference, I’m 5’4” ad as you can see; it’s pretty short on me. Tights are an obvious solution here (try some fishnets!), but you could even turn this dress into more of a tunic and rock some of-the-moment black bike shorts under this. By the way, you’ll notice that my belt has gold in it, and for the record you can absolutely mix silver and gold. Don’t follow those rules! I love the mix of metallic colors.
The belt also plays nicely with my black accessories. Instead of super high heels here, I kind of kept in the mod spirit of this silver sequin dress with low block heels. I got this pair last year so sadly they are sold out, but linked an almost identical pair here with the same pointed toe and black suede.
If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I love myself a good star print. I picked this clutch because I love the simplicity of the black and white combo. It doesn’t overpower the sequins, but the stars add some fun to it. And it fits a lot! I hate going out with a tiny clutch where you’re force to hold your phone in your hand… it totally defeats the point of a bag to me.
I also linked a handful of other similar sequins dresses with long sleeves and short hemlines below. Be sure to check those out as well for some extra inspo!
