Sequins and pleather/leather are what's in for fall 2023. Glamor never dies when you shine above the rest, especially in the most elegant or even more scandalous ways. This week, we at Melrose are excited for the weather to change finally and for October (spooky season). If you're the type that needs an excuse to find pieces you wouldn't usually purchase, spooky season is your sign, and we have the fashion you're looking for, featuring full-on sequin sets, tops, and pleather pieces; don't forget to add some rhinestones and silver for the trends this season. Check out our styles below for some nightlife and party outfit inspiration.
Sequin sets and dresses are a perfect bold yet elegant night out look; whether you're going to the club, a high-end bar, or a party, you'll make a statement and catch the attention of everyone graced with your presence. Sequins were a piece of the fall fashion week trend, with silver as the preferred accessory color. While sequins stand out independently, styling around them can be tricky, but we've got you covered.
When styling sequin sets, you want to keep everything else sleek from head to toe. Straight hair, nude makeup with glossed lips, and heels are staples to pull off these looks. Our first two sequin sets are the "Chocolate" Solid 2-Piece Sequin Set in black and mocha. The black set we pair with our "Legend" 4" Rhinestone Snake-Up Faux Fur Heels, while the mocha set has the champagne "Top" 2 3/4" Glitter Ankle Strap Heels. For the ladies leaning more toward the black sequin set, take it to a rooftop party and play with an oversized classic tailored outerwear piece, a matching sequin jacket, or a perfectly poofy faux fur jacket for added comfort and luxury flair. The mocha set is a perfect look for a cocktail party, especially since it's in a somewhat nude color palette; the subtle base color, added with the shimmer of the sequins, elevates your style without being overtly flashy. Choose a white wine as your beverage, and you'll have aesthetic goals Instagram and TikTok-worthy. You can do the same with the third look, our "Chocolate" One Shoulder Sequin Crop Top.
The final look features our black "Chocolate" 31" Sequin Spaghetti Strap Dress and black "Wild" Satin Snake-up Rhinestone Heels. This author is more biased toward the sequin dress being the more fun and versatile all-sequin piece to work with. You can do everything mentioned with the two-piece sequin sets, but there's so much more to dresses. The Len Parent Style on Pinterest has a red sequin dress (trending color and fabric) accessorized with a large belt. Or get creative like @graceowxn and pair your sequin dress with a blazer and tights.
Glitz, Glam and Pleather
Not too big on the all-sequin look, but still enjoy some shimmer and shine? Combine the sequin trend with the pleather/leather trend. In high fashion, all leather looks are the current trend, but there are never fashion rules, so combine what's in instead. At Melrose, our "in" colors are magenta/fuschia and hunter green; we mix our popular colors with current trends here.
If you want to be one of the most bold women in the room, our first outfit screams you. Here we feature the fuschia "Chocolate" Sequin Spaghetti Strap Crop Tank, black "Chocolate" 1-Button Bootcut Pleather Pants, and silver "Forever" 3" Thick Heeled Rhinestone Booties. This look is great for a dance club or a big house party.
The happy-go-lucky girl knows how to be the most exciting person in the room. Take our "Chocolate" Glitter Geometric Tank Bodysuit and pair it with our "Chocolate" Pleather Pants and silver "Forever" 3" Thick-Heeled Rhinestone Booties dancing, especially at a country club with your hat. You'll be the trendiest gal with your silver accessories and pleather pants.
Though champagne/gold is not a trending color this fall, the sequins invite the hues to the party. Be different than the others with our champagne "Chocolate" Sequin Spaghetti Strap Tank, and make it your stand-out piece. Finish the look with our black "Chocolate" 15" Slit Mini Skirt, and black "Top" 3" Wide Patent Pleather Ankle Strap Heels.
This next look is for the baddies who know they have gorgeous figures and want to show off. Here we feature our fuchsia "Chocolate" Draped Glitter Tank, black "Chocolate" Black Pleather Side Tie Shorts, and silver "Dodo" 3 1/2" Rhinestone Glitter Buckle Ankle Strap Heels. You're a high-dollar girl who only goes for the most exclusive parties. Level this outfit with our white "Ambiance" Faux Fur Cropped Hooded Jacket.
Finally, we present the last look with a pop-star inspiration. Live your dreams of fame and glamor in our hunter green "Chocolate" Rhinestone Spaghetti Strap Tank Top, "Nesso Jeans" Satin Lined Pleather Pleated Skirt, and silver "Forever Link" 4" Stiletto Heeled Rhinestone Pull-on Boots.
