Adding sequins to your favourite dress styles is all the motivation you’ll need to fully embrace party season.

Sequins may be the biggest cliché of party season, but they’re a festive perennial for good reason. Not only do they work for any occasion and uplift your mood in an instant, they also have the innate power to make you look as though you’ve made an effort, with no actual effort needed.

Whether you go for a little black sequin dress for the work Christmas party or would prefer a silver sparkly number with a blazer and boots for after-work drinks, these are the dresses that’ll suit every style and budget. 

Although Team Stylist is very much all for staying in with our very fanciest luxe PJs, nothing quite says Christmas like a twinkling sequin frock. Scroll on to see the best 11 sparkly dresses from some of our favourite brands.
