Styles That Shine

You may have seen an unusual bright touch among the looks of the most popular fashion icons lately. But in case you missed it, we are here to tell you: sparkle has been a major trend in recent seasons. And if we are 100% sure of one thing in life, it is: everything is better with a bit of glitz! So if you're looking to sparkle this year, that is your chance: Sequins, embellishments, shimmer and metallic fabrics and anything that shines bright are huge trends popping up on the runways. 

And you don't have to save the glam piece for parties; everyday glitz will definitely be the norm. From sparkling skirts and pants to sequined tops and jackets - get ready to see them all day long.



We can't start talking about sparkles without talking about sequins. Sequin has always been synonymous with occasion wear or party dressing - and still is the extra glam for your special event outfit. But we are here to bring this season news: you should also incorporate a little shine in your everyday wardrobe. One way to integrate shine during the day without feeling over the top is to start with a sparkling piece paired with another basic piece for a clash that works. Think of your sequin piece as the hero— a versatile pair of shiny trousers or a statement jacket/top with sequins will become your new staple.




The metallic fabric is another trend that certainly made an impact, with iridescent fabrics being a hit on the runway. For a bolder take on the trend, try adding a metallic statement piece to your wardrobe: a long gown for special events and gleaming pants and tops for a night out. Bold metallic tones work best with block colours like gold and silver. Statement accessories will also help you stand out. We know we often struggle with investing in style trends that may be around or relevant next season. But fortunately, with the metallic fashion fad, there are plenty of pieces on the market that will last forever in your wardrobe. 



Time to level up! Hand-beaded dresses are no doubt the pinnacle of a dressy gown. Beaded fabrics are a luxurious option often favoured by wedding couture. From lavish and extravagant heavily beaded fabric to fabrics with a modest smattering of beads, there are dresses for every occasion, age and style. With a vast range of colours such as blue, sage, and mink, there are plenty of options for mother-of-the-brideformals or evening wear
