Tis the season to sparkle! ✨ To be honest, I'll find any reason to wear a sequin, but especially so over the holidays. There are a lot of plus size sequin options out there right now, and in my experience, I've learned that if I think too long about a dress, it will inevitably sell out before I can snag my size.
In that spirit, I wanted to share some fun plus size sequin dresses and tops available right now. I specifically wanted to include dresses that go to AT MINIMUM a size 26. There are a lot of options for size 22/24 and under, so I wanted to focus on the slightly harder-to-find sizes.
- Mini golden sequin dress
- Long sleeve short sequin dress, available in 15 colors
- Two tone colorblock sequin dress with puff sleeves
- Full sleeve sequin maxi dress
- Intricately sequined deep v mini dress
- Green sequin party dress
- Champagne sequin top with split sleeves
- Rainbow striped short sequin dress
- Striped sequin maxi dress
- Black sequin faux wrap top
The biggest question I get when wearing sequin pieces is if they're itchy. I get it – it's not the most tactile of embellishments on the outside. For the most part, sequin pieces are lined with mesh or some other soft and stretchy lining that shields the skin from anything uncomfortable. I do suggest before deciding to keep an item to do a sit test. Sometimes pieces with larger sequins on the bum can give you quite a poke, so make sure you'll be comfortable.
Also a random practical tip: If you're driving at nighttime with sequins, you might want to cover up with a shawl or coat. While a disco effect is fun in theory, it can be quite distracting when headlights shine in the car. Safety first and sparkle on!
Just for fun, here are some of my favorite sequin pieces from years past:
