An explosion of glamour has hit the shops. With the excitement of the festive season, it is time to think about party outfits. Your little black dress is a safe and classic option. This season why not opt for affordable luxurious pieces to stand out. From elegant jumpsuits and sequin skirts to glam tux and figure enhancing dresses, here is what to look for to dazzle on a night out.
The new evening elegance will make you feel amazing. The jumpsuit comes in all sorts of hues — purple, red, emerald or navy, charcoal and black, with embellished details. In the high street Topshop and Warehouse have some great options. I have spotted a navy number at Warehouse, a colour that looks superb with metallic or coloured accessories.
Skirts are great style alternative to dresses and enable greater style combos. Try a sequin pencil skirt with a loose shirt tucked in and classic heels and clutch. If straight skirts are not for you, an A-line style or full skirt paired with a neat top are equally flattering. Look for taffeta, lace, or silk in bright hues. Pair the ensemble with a cropped jacket or a coat.
Colour suits in vibrant hues are in vogue for the season. You can wear the full suit with classy pumps or wear the ensemble separately and go for the trousers with an elegant top, or pair the jacket over a navy dress.
One of the most coveted look right now is the white tailored trouser. River Island has a stunning jacquard white trouser that looks striking with coloured sandals and embellished top. Or go all monochrome and pair it with a black top and heels and finish with bolder accessories. Speaking of white, swap your little black dress with this white number from French Connection and balance the look with nude accessories and contrasting makeup.
A coloured dress is another alternative to the classic LBD. Go for intense hues of pink, red or green and choose a figure-enhancing style such as this beautiful dress by Micheal H or this emerald number from TK Maxx. Complete the look with more muted accessories and let the dress do the talking.
