It’s an urban myth that women post 40 can’t wear sequins. (Did I just hear you gasp in horror?)

In the new fashion-era of mix-and-match and anything (almost) goes, sequins are no longer restricted to floor-length gowns for formal evening events, but have made their way onto the street in the broad light of day.

In this day of #ageless dressing, sequins are perfectly fine for all ages but there are a few adherences to avoid looking like a disco ball from Studio 54.

To add sparkle to your style, here are a few style tips to make a shining statement:

A Classic Silhouette 
The number one rule for wearing sequins over 40 is to opt for chic silhouettes paired with classic pieces. Avoid anything trend-driven that belongs on a twenty-something.

Avoid Overkill
The KISS rule is so important. Over-sparkling will catapult you into Tina Sparkle territory. Certainly evening events call for shimmering sequins but don’t overdo accessories or styles.

Sequins by Day
Sequins by day is all about classic styles and only one sequin item. Avoid anything that belongs in a nightclub.

Evening Sparkle
Effortless, classic silhouettes in tonal colours is the best option.  Avoid anything to fussy or overly embellished and keep accessories simple and classic.

Too Tight, Too Revealing, Too Much!
When it comes to sequins, leave the skin-baring to Cher and avoid at all costs super-tight leggings (especially with high heels).

Avoid Trends
Again leave trend-inspired ensembles to the 20-somethings.
