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.
Little Black Dresses
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.
A splash of Colour
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!
