Disco ball chic

Herve Leger square-neck sequined bandage dress from Bergdorf Goodman $2,600If you’re looking for a glamorous, show-stopping dress for New Year’s Eve or some other big holiday gala, think “sparkle”. This season designers embraced embellishment in a big way. So if you are looking impact, then usher in the New Year with a touch of “disco ball chic” in a body-conscious sequin sheath.
 
There are many to choose from at all price points this year. Make sure the one you select will not fall apart while you are wearing it. Check the seams on very inexpensive sequined and beaded clothes as they can be fragile. This type of dress should be fitted but not too tight, or you are risking exposure. Sequined and beaded dresses can tear from too much pressure and tugging. And they will ride up, so get one that fits with some ease. The look is already very sexy, so don’t push it with a too-low neckline or a panty-grazing hemline.
 
The only jewels you need with this type of dress are earrings. Wear dressy pumps or sandals in a neutral patent, or satin. Shoes in a matching metallic finish also look chic.
