The expression, ‘sugar, spice and all things nice,’ has long been used to encapsulate what all young girls are made of, but we think ‘shimmer, spice and all things nice’ could be used to sum up the sentiment of the sartorial season.
Blazing a trail, both figuratively and literally, the fashionably elite have been hitting the catwalk and the red carpet dressed almost head to toe in the shiniest of sheens, from metallic sequins to glistening chainmail.
There are endless interpretations, with an option for every occasion. Dazzling diamantes and floor-skimming metallics traditionally reserved for evening attire have been liberated from their after-hour confines and are sweeping into sartorial consciousness as appropriate attire for, well… anytime!
Cut loose in a suitably summery micro-mini, step into the limelight with a heel encased in glitter or bedazzle your tee-and-jeans combo with the sparkliest of accessories.
Minimalism may have dominated the catwalks for the past decade, with its muted colours and shapeless garments, but ‘70s-inspired silhouettes have trickled down from high-fashion and the last couple of seasons have seen a resurgence of high-octane glamour, glitter and sequins.
Take the opportunity to shine and add the Midas touch to your wardrobe this season.
