Our favourite sequin pieces to buy now
As we get closer to Christmas Day, the amount of twinkling fairy lights increases, as well as the amount of mince pies we consume. People begin to get into the party spirit, baby sitters diaries rapidly book up and it becomes considerably easier to justify another drink, or two. Aside from your Christmas jumper, there is only one thing which can compete with the fairy lights and is suited for the abundance of Christmas parties: sequins.
If there was ever a more appropriate time to adorn yourself in sequinned items, it is Christmas. Here is our selection of sparkles currently available to ensure you don’t get outshone by an array of tinsel.
