SEQUINS COVERS SPRING/SUMMER 2020 RUNWAYS

Fashion’s obsession with sparkle is still going strong. If you thought your glittery garments were reserved for ringing in the new year or a disco-themed party, it may be time to reassess that belief for spring. For too long, we’ve collectively restricted our sparkliest ensembles for special occasions. Sequins are for birthdays, holidays and New Year’s Eves only; they are never to see the light of day, and certainly not to see the light of night unless that night is designated as some kind of Big Deal.

As of Summer 2019, everyday sequins are not only acceptable—they’re veritably trendy. Summer sparkles have pervaded designer collections and fast-fashion stores, alike. And they’re poised to pervade our closets, too. No longer must we closet our extra AF sartorial selves 362 days each year. We’re now invited—nay, encouraged—to unleash them on the daily.

Summer sequins are here, baby. And it’s time we all shone as bright as the summer sun. On the Spring 2020 runways, designers are having more fun with sequins than floral prints, proving the shiny, glistening detail can be worn for absolutely any occasion and season. This summer’s sequin trend is throwing a wrench into everything we thought we knew about sparkles, about propriety, about life.

Summer 2019’s trendiest sequin pieces are as bright as its matte ones and they are also as dynamic. Sequin fringe is on the menu—so are sequin ruffles and sequin-covered floral prints. Call to mind any piece you’ve been eyeing this summer, and odds are, it’s now available in a veritably sparkly iteration. A wise woman once said, “Shine bright like a diamond.” And summer 2019 is making it easier than ever to heed her suggestion.

It seems that 2019’s approach to sequins is less about high-octane glamour; instead, it concentrates on high/low styling—a sentiment shared by some of our favorite Instagrammers. Think sequinned slip dresses layered over knitwear and embellished tops worn with cycling shorts. Indeed, it seems that just about anything goes as far as accompanying pieces are concerned, but you can’t go wrong with sequins and blue denim.

Marc Jacobs closed out New York Fashion Week on a sparkly note with a chorus of shimmery gowns, setting the tone for what would be a very shiny stay in London. In the British capital, Michael Halpern presented his vision of old-school Oscars glamour, which consisted of floor-sweeping glitter trains and a bedazzled flared pantsuit. At David Koma, there was a sequined zebra-stripe catsuit and a lot of sparkly fringe. Designer duo Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida jazzed up an asymmetrical dress with twinkling red and blue sequins. And at Roland Mouret, the beaming embellishment appeared on a slew of garments, from a seafoam green bodysuit to a fitted cream-colored blazer.

Italian designers also got in on the glimmering action: Emporio Armani showed glitzy daywear with clear sequins, creating a see-through effect. Shortly after, Fendi debuted vacation-ready clothes featuring the glistening adornments — think an easy-to-throw on mini dress and a beach cover-up. The shimmer continued at Bottega Veneta on two smoldering sleeveless frocks; both of which we’re sure to see at some after party during awards season.

The 80’s are a huge influence on 2020’s fashion scenario. This winter’s obsession is the 1980’s glitter and shoulder pads and night-club style à la Studio 54 or Palace.

The trend lends itself well to beauty products infused with alcohol, like wine for its antioxidant properties, as well as luxurious ingredients including edible gold and glitter, silk and diamond dust. Glitter effects (made through new sustainable processes), self-illuminating sparkle and easy glitter applications are on trend, Hago said. Nail art is inspired by street art and hair color takes on cartoon-like vibes. Old school hair techniques, like hot rollers, are modernized with more efficient versions. Moreover, On trenches, across trousers, and even splashed all over bags, metallic hues – more specifically silvers – were everywhere on the SS20 catwalk.
