I don’t know about you, but I’ve got six events coming up in my diary (from a fancy friendsmas dinner to my work Christmas lunch and then a bottomless birthday brunch on NYE) and I’m so keen to mix it up and not end up wearing a different LBD to every single one.
I’ve dabbled in sequin dresses, but I felt far too fussy in them. A pair of sparkly trousers however feels much more in tune with my normal looks, and they’re big news this season. From Warehouse to River Island to Zara and Mango, the high street has gone all out with its sequin trouser offering. We have the unstoppable rise of the co-ord to thank, and the fact that since this year is our first chance for proper festive celebrations since the pandemic, the partywear selection has come back with a bang.
So whether dresses aren’t your thing, or you just have so many events packed into December that you want maximum choice, allow me to introduce you to the sequin trouser. The statement style that magically feels slightly low key (OK, in comparison to all the super-glitzy dresses), and works for day and night.
Now that you’ve seen the best on the high street right now, here’s what to wear with sequin trousers…
Logo t-shirt + blazer
How chic are these silver trousers? Thanks to the simple cut, they give off a minimal vibe, which means they’re ideal for desk to dinner dressing. Of course, we want to get maximum wear out of the pieces in our wardrobe – sparkly trousers included – so by day, pair them with a logo T-shirt, an oversized blazer and white trainers. The result? An It girl look that I could easily imagine Kate Moss in.

Sequin top + platforms
Go hard or go home, I say, which in this case means a matching set for what to wear with sequin trousers. Tis not the season for a pared-back look, and if you’re keen on making a statement and dressing like a literal disco ball, this is the month to do it in. I love the shape of this top – the brand have called it a dress, but I think it looks super chic and flattering paired with the matching trousers.
Team with black heels and a velvet headband and you’ve basically won at party dressing.
Blouse + dressy flats
If you’re staying in for NYE (I don’t blame you, it’s already freezing), then it’d be rude not too get a little bit glam, wouldn’t it? I’m not saying you throw on your highest heels and a dress though. Sparkly trousers with a statement top (perfect for Zoom calls with grandparents come midnight) will see you through, and if you do head out, throw on a pair of embellished flats.
Knit + boots
A texture clash always adds interest to an outfit, and what better pairing than sequin trousers and a super-soft knit? A cream crew neck tones down the glitz of the trousers, but not so much that this isn’t still a dressy look.
