Prom is a very special night in your high school experience. And, what says special occasion more than sparkles and sequins? If you're considering a sequin dress, keep reading to find out if it's the right choice for you.

A Brief History of Sequin Dresses

The word 'sequin' comes from the Arabic word sikka, which means 'coin.' People would sew small, coin-like discs onto their clothes as a symbol of wealth and status.

When King Tut's tomb was discovered in 1922, he was covered in gold discs, that can only be described as sequins. It's guessed that this was to ensure that he would be wealthy in the afterlife.

And between 1480-1482, artist Leonardo da Vinci envisioned the first sequin machine. He sketched a concept for a machine that would use levers and pulleys to punch small discs out of a metal sheet. This was essentially creating sequins.

Sequins have a long history in fashion. A sequin garment symbolizes wealth, class, and luxury.

Sequin Prom Dresses

There are many options when considering a sequin dress. A recent trend has been shades of gold for sequin dresses. You can choose the standard sequin gold prom dress or a shade of rose-gold is very popular.

If you want to go off the "typical route," you can choose a black sequin dress to stand out. Everyone expects gold sequins but black will shock and stand out! Silver prom dresses with sequins are also popular.

Celebrities in Sequins

Need some inspiration? We recommend looking up Ciara and Jennifer Lopez in long sleeve sequin dresses. They show two different variations of the long sleeve dress, with Ciara in a formal, long gown and Jennifer Lopez rocking a short, long-sleeve sequin party dress.

And for those that need some plus size inspiration, check out Kelly Clarkson in a gorgeous red plus size sequin dress. Or, Adele in a long-sleeve sequin dress that hits the floor.

Wearing Sequins to Prom

Sequins feel like a celebration dress. It's a great choice for a prom dress, or as a dress for any special occasion like homecoming or a winter formal. A sparkling sequin dress is flattering on all body shapes and sizes. Just make sure that you feel comfortable in your dress, that it's representative of your style, and the color compliments your skin tone and hair color.
