Get your sparkle on with these chic embellished dresses

Taylor Swift’s red carpet looks have been nothing, if not glamourous. This year alone, the singer has been experimenting with plenty of bling and shimmer. Take, for example, this stunning diamond and jewel-encrusted Oscar de la Renta mini dress that she wore to the VMAs earlier this year.

And while we absolutely love this look, it was Swift’s ensemble at the MTV Europe Music Awards that we cannot stop gushing over. Dressed in a David Koma ensemble, Swift wore a black bodysuit fixed with a bold caged skirt adorned with emeralds. The dress was an obvious shoutout to her hit “Bejeweled.”

Continuing her bejewelled moment, she switched into another shimmery dress also by David Koma, later that night.

Embellished dresses have been a major style statement this year with celebrities donning some very impressive iterations on the red carpet. This year alone, events like the Met Gala and Cannes had some truly awe-inspiring looks. And while dressing in a heavy gown might not be a viable option, you can always opt for a short, chic embellished dress. Take a look at some of our top picks below.

Gold and glitter are a match made in heaven. If you’re someone who enjoys the all-out glam chic look, then this Abhishek Sharma creation is perfect for you. A  full-sleeved, form-fitted dress, the outfit is decorated with ornate molten gold embroidery stitched over a bed of pearls. The work is done in a neat geometric pattern that creates the impression of an intricately detailed bejewelled ensemble.

For those who love the classics and stray away from sparkle, this pearl-embellished Balmain Revival dress is for you. It’s neat and simple with an elegant silhouette, enhanced by a ton of pearls in different shapes and sizes. Considered to be one of the favourites among the designer’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection, the dress is a tribute to the label’s favourite adage “there’s no such thing as too many embellishments”.

This crystal-embellished dress highlights two of Dolce & Gabbana’s favourite elements, the baroque aesthetic and the colour black. The muted black hue of the dress is enhanced with a collection of delicately embroidered crystals and with shiny jewel details. The sparkly contrast of the dress against the muted black gives the ensemble the signature Dolce & Gabbana aesthetic, perfect for any event.

Pick any ensemble from Oscar de la Renta’s collection and you can see the designer’s love for glitz and sparkle. This shimmery cocktail dress is our current favourite. It features a halterneck with an open back and cinched waist design. The dress is generously covered in decorative silver crystal embellishments, stitched on a mesh fabric to create a smooth appearance rather than a contrasting tone.

Another one of this year’s hottest trends is the hot pink shade popularised by Valentino in his Autumn/Winter ’22 collection. Among them was this masterpiece which he considered a ‘manifestation of the unconscious and a liberation from the need for realism.’ Made from a blend of silk and wool, this short-sleeve mini dress features a lurex-detailed jacquard design embellished with shimmering sequins and waist darts.
