Time to shine: The fashion trend to embrace this party season


Time to shine: The fashion trend to embrace this party season
Shine, shimmer and sequins reign for party season and beyond as runways embrace a little (or a lot of) sparkle.

There’s plenty of restraint and quiet luxury in fashion offerings from the world’s top designers right as well as more accessible fashion chain stores now. If you love the careful cut and simple drape of a minimalist look you’ll certainly be well served.

But there’s also great news for those in the mood for a bit of razzle-dazzle: shimmer, glitz and metallic gleam is also in abundance.

Blame it on Beyonce’s platinum-obsessed Renaissance tour (she even asked guests to her show to don the shimmery shade) but silver fabrications are particularly popular.

Shiny metallic finishes in gold, silver and pewter in particular are also runway highlights the fashion world seems to have run with and it’s perfect timing with seasonal parties and the approach of New Year’s Eve soirees on the calendar.

Sequins are a staple for party season and there’s plenty in every shade here too, but if you really want to show off your trend nous, choose from the sheer, crystalised-mesh offerings out there, be it knee-high boots, slip dresses or flippy skirts and plenty more accessories besides.

L-R: Leo Lin Dress; Shona Joy Dress; Sass & Bide Dress; Louis Vuitton Dress; Coach Bag; Gucci Bag; Kathryn Wilson Heels

Don’t want to go full disco ball? Seek out heels, a mini bag or shoulder-strap purse in a sleek and chic metallic finish.
