Shine bright in holiday rainbow sequins from Very, Boohoo and Wildfox
When we used to think of sequins, it was all about Beyonce, Strictly and fancy dress costumes, but times have changed.
Runway designer Ashish became known for his sequined everything from T-shirts to trousers and pretty soon the highstreet followed.
We knew they were official when brands like J Crew and Boden (known for their classic, preppy style) introduced sequined cardigans amongst their khaki’s and cashmere.
Nothing say holiday like a sequin watermelon bag
Model wears: T-shirt, £70, Wildfox at Selfridges; trousers, £46, Topshop; tassel earrings, £5.99; basket, £22.99, both New Look; scarf (on bag), £7.99, Stradivarius
When it comes to looking at which celebrities have worn sequins, it’s more a case of who hasn’t! With everyone from Alesha Dixon, Holly Willoughby to Karlie Kloss, Paloma Faith and and Kylie, the list goes on.
And why wouldn’t they?
They give you an instant glow, inject some much needed fun into the morning commute and can brighten up any outfit, even if it is a tiny sparkle detail on your everyday handbag (a bag charm or brooch is the easiest way to instantly update).
Embrace the sequin trouser
Model wears: Rainbow vest, £78, Wildfox at Selfridges; sequin trousers, £28, Boohoo; sequin sliders, £25, V by Very; tassel earrings, £6, Asos
These sequined trousers from Boohoo may not be for everyday, but make a great show stopper at a festival, or would make a stylish alternative to a gown or for a black tie do.
Either dress them down, Ibiza style with a logo T-shirt like this one from Wildfox or wear with a classic tuxedo jacket to make an entrance, Met Ball style.

Model wears: Sequin dress, £100, V by Very Unique
All that glitters is…. every colour of the rainbow with this sequin dress from Very. It’s not for the fainthearted, but will certainly get you noticed.
When it comes to accessorizing, take note, this dress will do all the talking, keep it simple with black courts and a small scale clutch.
Smartie sequins, our favourite treat!
Model wears: Sequin cover-up, £50, V by Very; jumpsuit, £29.99; earrings, £5.99, both Bershka
If you want to try out a little sparkle and not sure where to start, a jacket is definitely the way to go.
Sequin jackets have always been a Christmas party favourite, but this year the hero piece was the gunmetal sequin blazer complete with eighties style shoulder pads.
It’s winning formula? Just throw with jeans and a white tee for instant, easy glamour.
If you dare to bare, a sequin bralet is the way to go
Model wears: Sequin bralet, £20, Boohoo, ruffle skirt, £42, Topshop; sandals, £57, Bimba Y Lola; earrings, £10, Asos
Here we’ve livened up a simple black jumpsuit with this smartie sequin kimono jacket from Very.
Worn with oversized earrings and flat sandals, this is a great easy holiday look.
This bralet from Boohoo is perfect for that totally tropical party vibe.
For a beach to beach-bar look, throw over a wraparound skirt like this handkerchief hem style from Topshop.
A slick of glitter on the eyelid will pull the trend together
Model wears: Dress, £17.99, Stradivarius; sequin clutch, £19.99, New Look
If you want to keep your sequins really low key?
Then why not try a tongue-in-cheek bag like this sequined watermelon basket or encrusted clutch, both from New Look.
They will give a simple outfit nighttime status so always pack one in your case for holiday nights out.
