The dazzling radiance of sequins in evening and cocktail dresses hit the runways 2016-2017 with their size and multiplicity. Last year we could not think that this trend could return, moreover, so massive and ambitious.
Remember two-three years back, when rhinestones, crystals, sequins and other “glitter” were strongly associated with faux glamour, cheap style and weird desire to attract attention at whatever cost. What has changed now? Today brand designers are flipping through pages of fashion history and restore different trends that were in the limelight in the past decades.
In the case of sequins and other glitter, it was almost forced oblivion, when stylists prohibited decent girl even to cast a look at this kind of outfits. You want to look like a Christmas tree or a disco ball – then go for sequins. If you want to look properly, then please, do a favor, never wear glitter and unload your fashion looks.
Fall-Winter 2016-2017 set back in fashion velvet dresses (and other velvet and corduroy clothing items), which were forgotten for a long time and we were hardly thinking about them. And the second fashion resurrection is sequin trend. Long and short, cocktail, party dresses and evening gowns, embellished with small and bold sparkling sequins hit the runways.
Dresses with sequins are always welcomed as the party attire. Many of them are monochrome, but there is a great number of outfits with multicolored prints and patterns.
The other side of actual trend is evening dresses with sequins. They are long, adjacent, made from lightweight fabrics, moving while you’re walking, with thin straps and off-shoulder. The most daring dresses combine sequins with gold and silver. These gowns have appeared in the collections of Alexander McQueen, Guo Pei, Tommy Hilfiger, Giulietta, Michael Kors, Rachel Zoe, Roberto Cavalli, Jenny Packhan, Naeem Khan, Ulyana Sergeenko.
