She’s like a star:

All things shine are massive this season and are set to stay that way through spring/summer '12. Metallic fabrics, sequins, glitter… everything goes! I've loved this trend ever since I first spied that D&G dress (A/W ‘11 collection) a few months ago, and I still adore it now.

The dress that sparked it all for me: 

The shimmer soon spread to the high street as well, meaning us normal folk can afford to wear starlet style as well and let’s be honest a bargain is never a bad thing. One of my favourite buys in the New Year sales in fact, was a pair of metallic brogues from Newlook. It was love at first sight. They’re so versatile, which is something I didn’t think would be the case with metallics. They go with everything…well almost everything anyway. They look great with shorts, skirts and skinny jeans. Just call me “twinkle toes”. 

Walking on the sunshine: 

I know that for a lot of people the idea of wearing metallic or glitter clad clothes can be extremely daunting, and it is a trend that’s hard to get perfect. So here’s how I think the trend should be worn. The first outfit I created is based on sequins and glitter, the second is on metallic fabrics. 

What a sparkler:

Well, it looks to me like this trend’s here to stay, so it’s worth investing in something fabulously shiny in preparation for it. I will be!
