Sequins aren't just for Christmas, everyone needs to remember that! Sequins are for life, and that's why I've been searching for the best sequin dresses to hang in your wardrobe for years to come. 

There's always a time and a place for a sequin dress - whether you're looking for a sequin mini, maxi, midi, midaxi or ball gown. Quite frankly, whatever style you choose, you simply cannot go wrong with a bit of shimmer and shine. 

As HELLO!'s resident sequin obsessive (ask anyone!), I wanted to scour the virtual rails for some of the best sparkliest frocks for you all to enjoy. 

How I chose the best sequin dresses

  • New In: I'm not here to show you dresses you've probably seen before. I have scoured all of the new-in sections on my favourite fashion brands to find the latest and most exciting sequin dress for your big event. 
  • Modern Styles: This is a modern edit of sequin dresses. It's an edit that showcases various styles and for various ages. Though, in my opinion, fashion is age-less and sequins can suit anyone of any age. 
  • Cost-Per-Wear: I don't want you to waste your money on a sequin dress you'll only wear once. The beauty of sequins? They never go out of style. 

The best sequin dresses for 2023

Are you ready to be bedazzled?

    M&S Sequin V-Neck Midaxi Cami Dress

    Editor's Note

    I adore this dress. I also think it would make an incredible bridesmaid dress, especially with the sizing and the options for petite and tall. 

    Wow, would you look at this?! Bring a little glitz to your party wardrobe with this sequinned cami dress. The length is great, but it also comes in petite and tall.

  • Warehouse sequin dress of dreams

    Editor's Note

    Wow! This is giving me red carpet vibes. I want the life that this dress will bring. It's very Carrie Bradshaw back in her Sex and the City days. 

    If you're looking for the perfect dress to get you noticed, this is it. The pink fringing, the metallic sequins... it's just phenomenal. Get ready to shake it on the dancefloor. 

  • ASOS sequin dress of dreams

    Y.A.S Sequin Mini Dress In Retro Floral

    Editor's Note

    If you're on the hunt for a fun mini dress for your sequin number, let me present you with this beauty from Y.A.S via the ASOS website. I would love to pack this for a holiday - it would look stunning during golden hour. 

    A floral sequin dress could be too much for some, but if you can handle the drama, go for it!

  • Karen Millen sequin dress of dreams

    Karen Millen Sequinned Bandeau Woven Midi Dress

    Editor's Note

    This is giving me major Kate Moss-in-the-nineties-vibes and I'm not complaining. A sensational dress, this is one you'll be wearing year-round. 

    This bandeau sequin bodycon fit calls for metallic stilettos and matching jewellery for an event-ready outfit. Keep hair and makeup as fuss-free as possible.

  • Mango sequin dress of dreams

    Mango Asymmetric Sequin Bow Dress

    Editor's Note

    Ok, this is selling out fast so be warned. I know it's not cheap but this is one of those standout dresses for a momentous occasion. Don't forget - you're worth it. 

    Sequins and shoulder ties - two trends in one fabulous dress. The tailored design is a work of art and is part of Mango's Capsule collection. 

  • Coast sequin dress of dreams

    Coast sequin and beaded gold dress

    Coast Sequin & Bead Midi Cami Dress

    Editor's Note

    This. Is. A. Dress. The model is giving newly single Sofia Vergara! This dress is for a bombshell - and yes, the bombshell is you. 

    Whatever the event in your diary, if you've hesitated over this dress, it's the one. Style with va-va-voom hair, glossy makeup and the highest shoes you own. 

  • H&M sequin dress of dreams

    H&M Blue Sequin Dress

    Editor's Note

    A mini dress isn't for everyone but the beauty of this dress is that you could tuck it into jeans or trousers if you'd prefer to wear it as a top. That's what I'd do wearing this. 

    Festival season may be over now but this dress would be great for a holiday or worn casually with boots and a leather jacket. Sequins aren't just for glam nights out. 

  • Nadine Merabi sequin dress of dreams

    Nadine Merabi pink sequin dress

    Nadine Merabi Lara Pink Sequin Dress

    Editor's Note

    Anyone who knows me knows I'm a huge fan of Nadine Merabi - it's one of the best brands out there for occasion wear. This dress is proof - isn't it just fabulous?!

    The Lara dress is figure-hugging dress with an underwire bustier with boning to the front, back, and sides to compliment your shape. 

  • Zara sequin dress of dreams

    Zara silver sequin dress

    Zara Sequin Strapless Dress

    Editor's Note

    As a sequin expert, I'm obsessed with Zara. The brand always brings out the good ones and would you just look at this masterpiece?! 

    Just you wait until you see the back of this dress. Absolutely phenomenal! 

  • Needle & Thread sequin dress of dreams

    Needle & thread sequin dress

    Needle & Thread Violet Shimmer Ankle Gown

    Editor's Note

    Someone please invite me somewhere fabulous so I get to wear this wonderful Needle & Thread gown. I don't know whether it's the hot pink hue or the swishy design, but it's got my heart.

    The Violet Shimmer Ankle Gown in Azalea Pink is a wonderful romantic style delicately scattered with shimmering sequin artwork.
