As conversations turn to what to wear to your festive parties, Christmas lunches with the girls and NYE, there’s only one fashion item everyone’s shopping for – a sequin midi skirt from the high street. Sequin skirts have become as synonymous with Christmas parties as an LBD and a lukewarm Prosecco and there’s good reason; they can be dressed up, toned down and are universally flattering. *Chef's kiss*

How to style a sequin skirt
A sequin midi skirt is far easier to style than you might think - just look at Holly Willoughby, Alexa Chung and a host of street style influencers who wear theirs with knits.
Influencer Gitta Banko styles hers with a slouchy tonal knit - we love!
The sequin skirt is the cool girl’s alternative to a traditional party dress, looking as stylish with a silky cami and heels as they do a chunky roll-knit jumper and hiking boots – wearable, affordable and universally flattering are just some of the reasons we love them so. Party time? Add a sheer blouse, satin tee or clashing sequins. For Christmas Day, we'd add a lightweight knit or an oversized sweater and brunch calls for a hoodie or cable-knit sweater with sneakers.
Anything that can be dressed up or down season upon season gets pride of place in our wardrobe. Trust us, the cost per wear will be pennies because you’ll be wearing it SO often.
