My Favourites

If you’re after glitz and glamour though, I’ve picked out three of my own personal favourites for the new season.

Vince Ring Sequin Tunic Dress

The Vince Ring Sequin Tunic, pictured above right, is a tunic which has been embellished all over with large, ring shaped sequins in antique silver and gold. It’s so easy to wear – it just pulls on over the head to fit, and it is fully lined. You can cinch the waist for a different look if you choose.  You can also wear the dress on its own, or over leggings so there are lots of options. Don’t expect it to stay on the shelves for long.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Panther Lurex Shift Dress Marc by Marc Jacobs Panther Lurex Shift Dress

I’m a fan of Marc by Marc Jacobs anyway, but I have to say, that this lurex panther dress ticks all my boxes. This navy jacquard dress has a funky all over panther design in bronze, making this a shift dress with a difference.

Team it with towering metallic heels and a clutch for an enviable cocktail outfit.

Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Sequin Dress Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Sequin Dress

This Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Dress is perfect for the party season. The all over shiny sequin embellishment gives the dress a great texture and a look of pure luxury, and a simple pair of black heels completes the look perfectly.

I like the multicoloured sequins – they are different shades of purple and black and there is an exposed silver coloured zip fastening centre back. The dress is also a little stretchy for a perfect fit.

Vivienne Westwood Lurex Dress
