Tis’ the party season and the trend for festive fashion sparkle! Whether it’s a Christmas lunch, office party, drinks with friends, visiting Santa’s grotto with the kids or out shopping for gifts, there is always time to sparkle and shine in December. Here’s my favourite sparkly picks ♥
French Connection isn’t shy of a little sparkle now and then, these tuxedo leggings have satin panels down the side and make a great statement piece. ASOS has more than a few party dresses for the ultimate glittering season, a shimmering gold babydoll by True Decadence, a 1920s style all over embellished shift and a blush pink red carpet worthy mini dress should see you into the new year. However with so much sparkle on offer, it’s best to bag a couple of extra pieces as you can’t be tagged in the same dress twice!
The sequin dress from the Somerset collection by Alice Temperley is another favourite find of mine, with her signature style of whimsical embroidery. Selfridges obviously house some amazing party dress for celebrity fans, the sequin bodycon dress by Joseph has to be a timeless classic. Of course for Christmas day, Boxing day and New Years Day embellished knits are a must and I have the perfect three! All you have to do is decide which one to wear when. With a sporty feel yet sparkly sleeves, the Michael Kors knit would definitely quickly become a favourite in my wardrobe, even after the festive period. The oversized embellishment on the Markus Lupfer knit will definitely get you noticed, dress it up with a skirt and heels or dress it down with skinny jeans and a scarf. Reiss take a laid-back approach to sparkle, this relaxed batwing knit emphasises their trademark style.
Of course accessories with a sparkle finish off any outfit! Starting with the gorgeous Kate Spade clutch from Selfridges, it glitters, it sparkles and it fits in all your party essentials for a night out. Black high-heeled courts are a must-have for every woman but at this time of year sparkly ones are a wardrobe staple! I love these embellished beauties from Carvela. Even though heels look amazing, once you have been dancing all night and your tired feet see 4am it could be an idea to pull out your trusted folded flats! The best bit…they still shimmer in the night as these little pumps from Dune are still embellished ♥
