FASHION MATHS: Sparkle
When it comes to the endless stream of social events over the coming weeks, there really is only one trend for the job: Sparkle. Taking typical party dressing and turning it on it's head for round-the-clock sequins, embellishments and sheer, this trend is all about upscaling your look for every day. Seen on the AW16 catwalks, the likes of Alexander McQueen, Saint Laurent and Markus Lupfer sent their looks down the runway with a 'more is more' mantra, piling studs, appliqué and embellishments on everything from leather jackets to sheer skirts. All in? Take one part festive spirit, add two parts glitter and welcome sparkle into your wardrobe. Dip your office day-to-night look in sequins and add OTT embellished accessories to a simple shirt, or add a sparkly sock to your favourite metallic heels for extra disco-ball details.
