When in Doubt, Sparkle
It’s fair to say that autumn has finally arrived, and winter is fast approaching. You’ve probably already noticed the darker mornings and the gradual decrease in temperature; but don’t get too down about it. The winter season means one big thing for your wardrobe; it’s party time. With the countdown to Christmas on, you might already be keeping your eye out for the perfect outfits to add to your collection.
So, to make sure your collection is full of the latest party dresses and other seasonal pieces, Parisian are here to offer a little inspiration. Whether you need a style overhaul or just a few key garments, it’s time to start thinking about your partywear.
The last few months has seen an influx of sequins that show no sign of disappearing before Christmas. The perfect embellishment for 2017’s party season, sequin dresses are in full force. From all-over sequin shift dresses to patterned bodycon dresses, sequins add an element of glamour that’s hard to beat.
Whether you feel safer in black, or you want to be daring in gold or silver, sequin dresses are a guaranteed way to add some glam to your collection. With those Christmas and New Year parties coming up in only a matter of weeks, you’d be hard pressed to find something that makes as much of a statement as a sequin dress.
For something a little more understated without losing that element of glamour or luxury, metallic shades are a perfect go-to. Metallic fabrics allow you to stand out from the crowd and add a sense of occasion to your dress or playsuit.
Whether you opt for a shimmery silver or even the ever-popular rose gold, metallics are a party favourite and were spotted across the catwalks in this year’s AW17 shows. Making sure you bring in the festivities with an added touch of indulgence, metallic dresses come into their own in the winter season.
While velvet fabric may not sparkle or catch your eye as much as sequins do, it’s still a force to be reckoned with for this year’s parties. Velvet brings an element of luxe to any outfit and, let’s be honest, will probably keep you a little warmer as you hit the town. A timeless addition to your collection, velvet party dresses have the ability to help you step out of your comfort zone and opt for something unique; perfect for any big occasion.
Pair your velvet with a striking print or extra embellishments, such as a ruched effect, to make sure it’s different to anything else out there!
