Q. I love crystal and sequin detailing on my dresses and tops. Is it possible to wear this trend during the day without looking too OTT? Jennifer, Doha
A. I love this look and wear it during the day – but you need to be careful that you don’t go out feeling like a disco ball! When wearing either sequins or jewel detailing, make sure you keep the rest of your look low key. Try simple cuts and plain colours, keep your make-up light and your hair in a casual style.
If you’re wearing sequins during the day, the more matte, the better. Leave the shiny ones for night-time. You can also team a sequined dress with nude shoes or a simple nude scarf.
A sheer sparkly dress or top with minimal makeup and accessories is a look that’s not only elegant but timeless. You can add a wrap, blazer or cardigan to give it a more day-time feel, and remember to roll blazer sleeves slightly for a more casual finish.
Finally, denim is an instant way to dress down and works well with a bit of sparkle.
