Five Favourite Sequin Jackets for Partying In –Product Reviews

It’s that time of year again, although I always hate to admit it at the start of November as the year just goes too too fast, however, here we are, on the brink of Christmas, and getting ready to party until we drop.

Sequins were very last Christmas but then sparkle is any Christmas so there are lots of them around again, perfect to add some shimmer to a simple LBD and of the ‘I’ll take you anywhere’ type. These are my five favourites from the collections online and (and I seem to say this a great deal) if you find something you really like at this time of year you shouldn’t hesitate – go for it, or it’ll probably be gone and also preferably don’t go for a one season wonder. Sequins are perennial favourites for partying in and will keep for year after year, provided you go for quality, rather than just the ‘look’.

As usual, because she is just about my favourite designer, I love love love the Diane von Furstenberg midnight/black sequin cardigan/jacket, the last one pictured – perfect for wearing over just about everything. Sequins are inevitably hard to photograph so it’s well worth clicking each to see the alternative views.
