Sequins get a minimalist makeover


The 1000-watt shine of sequinned outfits have been predominantly reserved for evening looks. No doubt these paillettes add stop-and-stare intrigue to a look, but they don’t always need to spell loud and OTT. Designers are now offering up these high-shine embellishments in softer palettes for a maximalist look but with a minimal twist. Aashni + Co brings you the lowdown on these muted glittery looks. Take a dip into this summer wedding-friendly dose of bling.
