I know that Summer has barely started but I’m here to keep you ahead of the trends. This Autumn/Winter I will be bringing you the best tips to keep you looking great and sparkling in the snow all Winter long.
Jewel It Up!
Heavy jewels are a must this coming season because they shimmer, sparkle and glow, no matter what the unpredictable weather might decide to do. When dressing up a Little Black Dress you can always achieve a glorious, glamorous outcome as the LBD is THE must have every Winter. By teaming a LBD with a chunky statement necklace that’s dripping in jewels creates a show stopping outfit that is sure to turn heads. Many people will attempt this look but only few will get it right. A necklace isn’t the only gem-y thing you’ll need to add to it… add some dangly earrings to match and maybe even a bracelet or cuff. They seem big and clunky at first but wearing that alone without other armcandy will create a clean and classic look.
Style is Eternal.
Remember that clothing can be covered in jewels too, many people over look garments with gems and diamonté embellished onto them becuase they think that they might fall off easily, but keep in mind that some fashion items are ‘disposable’ by this I mean we might wear it 3 or 4 times and then throw it out, give it to charity or even sell it. As Yves Saint-Laurent once said- “Fashions fade, Style is eternal”, don’t spend a fortune on pieces that you know won’t stay in your wardrobe for long… but if you see that one glittery and gorgeous clutch bag that you just have to have, go for it!
Sweatshirts and dresses that are highly embellished with gems/diamontés don’t always need the added accessories, saving you money and time. These items are a great investment even if we do only wear them a few times. Teamed with pair of skinny ripped jeans, an embellished sweater looks glamorous yet casual and is also perfect for any occasion and girls, don’t forget your baby pink coat as it is set to massive this A/W!
Fashion isn’t just about the clothing they’re so many other ways to express ourselves- make-up, nails and accessories all play a massive part. Wearing a simple glittery nail polish looks equally beautiful and has the same effect as a ring, it may be a pain to remove but the end result is worth. A simple sweep with a metallic-y or glittery eyeshadow or even eyeliner can brighten your eyes and draw attention to your face. If none of the above takes your fancy just add a sparkly clutch bag or statement watch and you’re good to go!
