THE IMAGE ANGEL
Brace yourself…this season everything is getting BIG!
More is more this party season! Think luxury and shiny. From reflective detailing such as sequins to reflective materials and colours. All manner of golds through to silvers, and bling a plenty in accessories. Here is our rundown…
FABRIC - LEATHER AND VELVET
Gorgeous buttery leathers can be found in all colours. How about a racing car green, or inky blue to jazz up your neutrals. Waterfall lapels or biker styles can add interest to your look.
Velvet has been around for some time, but for the party season you will find a variety of lengths and shapes of dresses and tops. Ensure that the fabric skims but not clings, and be mindful of where you will be wearing it as it is a heavy fabric and could make you hot. For dresses why not invest in a corselette underneath to help the fabric follow your silhouette.
PRINT - ANIMAL PRINTS
(Leopard and snake mainly) are huge right now. Keeping it simple with black or metallic accessories will ensure that the focus is on that print, and bring out your wild side.
DETAIL - SEQUINS AND FEATHERS
If you are drawn to detail like a moth to a flame, then you will love this season! Consider matching the size of sequins to your frame e.g smaller frame = smaller sequins to keep you in proportion. Feather details give a feminine edge and a reminder of the Hollywood Golden era. Become a femme fatale!
