Partywear From Wallis

The dark nights can almost be used as an extra excuse to sparkle and shine (have to get the Nativity pun in there as I watched it last night!). Winter is almost here and it is dark and cold by 5/30pm, but after dark is the perfect time to break out the high octane glamour. It’s time to party!

Wallis is always a good destination if you are looking for a party outfit, and this season they have some great dresses that could earn their keep in your wardrobe all through party season and beyond. Coco Chanel would be pleased that her chic ‘Little black dress’ is well represented, remaining the epitome of style and elegance almost 90 years since Coco decided that it was fit for so much more than formal mourning dress. The presence of so many dresses with sleeves will also be music to this ears of those that hate their upper arms due to real or imaginary bingo wings.

But if you wear every colour except for black, your wardrobe needs are covered too. Navy, purple, red and berry shades all add colour to your ‘sparkle and shine’ (yes, that phase again), and there are also elements of Christmas’s favourite fabric, velvet, in my personal favourite gown, the purple velvet puffed sleeve shift dress.

Wallis is great in that there are a good selection of dresses in the petite selection, as well as dresses of midi, mini and maxi lengths, giving you the choice that suits your style and body shape.

If you want to add your sparkle and shine (last time I promise) to your daytime wardrobe, then a glittery knit, teamed with skinny or boyfriend jeans, is a great way to become a queen of daytime sparkle. The pink and pearl effect jumper is absolutely gorgeous, in a 1950s vintage kind of way – I love it!

Wallis New Season Picks

September has often been called Fashion’s favourite month. With all the new season collections, the various fashion weeks, and of course, the September issues of the glossy magazines, September is a wonderful month for those who love clothes and style.

I am going to be taking a look at some of the new season ranges that are hitting the High Street as we speak, and today I am starting off by looking at the just in pieces from Wallis. Wallis has always been a stylish destination on the High Street, both for casual clothes, workwear and evening wear, and in recent years, it has more fully embraced trends without losing any of the style and quality it is renowned for. This season is no exception, as the brand introduces some great transitional pieces that your wardrobe is just crying out for.

Top picks this season have to be the range of coatigans and duster coats that make the perfect cover up as the days start to develop a chill in the air. It is too early to reach for a big heavy winter coat, but, on days like today, with storm Aileen lingering around the edge of the morning, we certainly need something to add a bit of cosiness. The monochrome texture duster jacket in particular is a glorious piece that will look just stunning worn over coated skinnies and a crisp white shirt for everyday wear, or layered over a black shift dress for a night out.

Colours are fairly muted, a neutral palette with lots of classic black. But there are splashes of primary colours in the shape of cobalt blue and a little bit of regal purple too. And, I have to say I love the baby blue shade of the blue waterfall coat which is so pretty and will certainly add a softness to the day as the weather turns harsher.
