With every fall formal event, we run into the question of how to dress appropriately and still remain warm. The weather is quickly getting colder with temperatures dropping by the day. In summer and springtime formal dressing, all you need to think about is your dress and your shoes, and a cute clutch bag. Statement pieces like a gold sequin dress can speak for itself in the summer without a heavy sweater taking away from the look.
Yet when it comes to fall, there are many important factors that have to come into consideration. You’ll need a jacket, of course, but also other warm accessories like tights or sweaters. When it comes to something like a gold sequin dress, your immediate thought will always be that the look can’t work for fall. But the truth is that if you plan your outfit right, you can make a bold look work for fall dressing.

We love this long-sleeved dress for a fall daytime look. Dress the sequins down with a trendy denim jacket, preferably in a dark wash, then team the outfit with ankle boots and an easy crossbody.
For a formal look: Bariano Embellished Maxi Dress with Cap Sleeve in Rose Gold
But then, of course, rose gold sequins are an excellent selection for a formal event, as they are inherently elegant. The sequins on this dress by Bariano are arranged in an intricate and exquisite pattern throughout the floor-length gown, starting with cap sleeves and a V-neckline at the top, and ending just at the ankle. For a complete look for fall, pair this dress with a cashmere shawl or cape and gold shoes with a gold clutch.
For an unexpected look: La Femme Sequin Party Sheath
While this dress is perfectly designed as a semi-formal attire look, it can also be a fashionable accent to an everyday fall look. Its rose gold sequins add a playful touch to an otherwise average look. Pair this dress with an oversized knit sweater and Chelsea ankle boots with knit socks for a cozy yet sophisticated fall daytime outfit.
For an elevated look: Nina Ricci Sequin Embellished Pleated Dress
This dress by Nina Ricci is an elevated yet somewhat unorthodox take on the rose gold sequin dress. It is designed with a rose gold base and overlaying sequins mainly in red, green, yellow. With these multicolored sequins in a playful array of colors, you should save this piece for your upcoming holiday parties. We suggest pairing this dress with a long cardigan and flats.

Closer to gold on the sequin spectrum, this dress features a bloused top and soft pleated skirt. With its pretty yet simple nature, this dress speaks for itself in just about any outfit. Wear it with a leather jacket and ankle boots to complete a great fall party look.
For the not-a-dress look: Dress the Population Sequin Wide-Leg Jumpsuit
So this rose gold sequin piece isn’t really a dress, but jumpsuits have almost the same effect as dresses in most settings. With a long, wide-legged look and a cinched-in waist, this jumpsuit from Dress the Population is a stunning piece. Its rose gold sequins are accented with multicolored sequins for an ultra-glam look. Pair this style with a leather jacket and heels to complete the look.
For the Classic Look: Jay Godfrey Sequin Midi Cocktail Dress With Full Skirt
With an A-line, pleated skirt, a V-neckline and an accentuated waist, this dress by Jay Godfrey has a classic appeal. The rose gold sequin finish gives it a highly contemporary touch, making this piece a stunning choice for a cocktail party. Wear it in fall with a trench coat and nude pumps.
For the Red Carpet Look: Dessy Collection Sequin Off the Shoulder Gown
Heading to a swanky event? Then slip into this gorgeous off the shoulder sequin gown. The sequins are so miniscule that they create a metallic shimmer effect, giving it a glitzy, photo-ready finish. Pair with a simplistic clutch and sparkling heels for a style that would put Cinderella’s iconic look to shame.
For the Cocktail Party Look: Vince Camuto Sequin Embellished Cocktail Dress
Cocktail parties lie on the fine line between formal and casual, and this dress hits right on that mark. The luminous rose gold embroidery creates an eye-catching glimmer, and the shorter style adds a fun and flirty touch. We know the fall weather can get chilly, so pair this dress with a comfortable blazer to keep cool, while staying warm.
For the Floral Look: Dress The Population Collette Sequin Fit & Flare Dress
While most people reserve their floral attire for the warmer spring season, we think this botanical pattern can be worn anytime of the year. Give this shimmery A-line dress a glow up by layering with some (faux) fur outerwear and these shiny metallic pumps.
