If there’s one lady we can count on to break the status quo, it’s Alexa Chung. In a sea of frothy couture gowns at the Met Gala, Chungers guaranteed she stood out. Enter this dazzling PJs-esque two-piece.

Custom made by Thakoon, the sequinned suit consists of a tuxedo jacket with a silk tie-belt and ankle-grazing trousers. Alexa amped up the menswear vibe with slicked-back hair, barely-there makeup and simple strappy heels. Naturally, I’m obsessed.

It also made for a perfectly glittering homage to David Bowie at the star-studded event in New York on Monday night. Or an “electric eel” as Alexa wittily captioned this Instagram snap.

If you too are bored of your standard tux jacket and trousers, you need some sequins in your life. Below, I’ve rounded up some sparkling alternatives for your shopping perusal. Because I’m nice like that. It’s basically a no-brainer. For the good of your happiness. Naysayers pipe down.
