Christmas is synonymous with glittering fashion and it’s time for us to shine. Here are 10 show-stoppers you can buy now
Last week we put together an edit of dresses for women who don’t do sparkles during this season.
This week, however, it’s time for the females who do glam to shine. If you can’t wear magical and flamboyant outfits at Christmas, then when can you? Well, every day of your life if you wish, but Christmas allows us to run that extra shiny mile.
These dresses are made to make an impact. From sequins to prints to feathers, this is sartorial hedonism at its finest. Indulge in the glittering swish of a sequin midi dress and roam free in the wild in a flowing high-low hem dress such as the rust satin beauty from Asos below.
If you are scared of the intensity of these dresses, pare back your accessories. Go without jewellery and keep your bag and shoes neutral. If you wish to sparkle like a Christmas tree, then don’t be afraid of chandelier earrings and diamante-adorned heels and bags.
Either way, you can make this look work for you. It’s Christmas. Go forth and have some fun – in life and fashion. Don’t be afraid of the light. It’s time to go big or go home. It’s time to shine.
