Its that time of year when we all start to feel Christmassy and look forward to a bevvy of Christmas parties. I have my first of many gatherings this weekend and have spent most of the last few weeks looking for a perfect fitting pair of silver sequin trousers. I had the whole outfit planned out in my head and absolutely loved the H&M offer but, on trying them on they just didn’t fit me that well. Tis’ the season for sparkle and outfits you wouldn’t wear any other time of the year so I really wanted to go for for it! After the trouser debarkle it was back to the drawing board and so V7: Sequins and Sparkles was born!
The high street is full of LBDs, jewel tones, textures and sequins. Now don’t get me wrong there can be such a thing as too much sparkle or at least the danger of looking like a Christmas tree fairy. For me, the best sparkly outfits are an even mix of masculine and feminine, the overtly sparkly with a chunky oversized knit, or a sequin skirt with thick black opaques. Even a simple bit of glittery accessories can maketh the the outfit.
Below are the looks we love, the combinations we covet and the styles we want to copy! Over the next few days we will compile a round up of the best of the high street. We love slightly different, individual styling so our selections are all items which can be dressed up or down. We love H&M, Zara and there a few great buys at Marks and Spencer.
