Shimmer and shine

Embrace shimmering fabrics this season and shine bright in your carefully selected metallic pieces.

Not only is the metallic craze taking over our favourite high street stores and boutiques, but we are also seeing the return of the sequin.

With sparkles and shimmer overloading the shops don’t get swamped by the trend – here are our top tips on how to conquer the look.

Intensify the look

If the shine and sparkle doesn’t faze you then go head-to-toe in metallic or sequins. Simplifying your make-up but adding a darker lip shade will compliment your shine.

Inject the shine

Like the look but don’t want to dedicate your whole outfit to the trend? Opt for a metallic skirt and wear it with a black bodysuit or top. Or chose a shiny top and team it with a neutral pencil skirt or a pair of black denim jeans.

The subtle addition

Ok, so you aren’t convinced! Add subtle accessories to your outfit to ease yourself into shimmering.

Metallic shoes and boots are also hot right now and teamed with your Little-Black-Dress they can add the perfect amount of shine without overpowering your look. Add a sequin bag in to the mix for a gorgeous amount of glamour, and why not accompany your look with the hottest accessory of the moment: the choker necklace?
