I am not usually one to follow trends, but with trends like these it is hard not to. Voloptious velvet, sparkling sequins, striking shine, timeless tassels, plush pleat and fabulous fur are all materials that can not go wrong on the eventful nights of the last months of 2017. Have you not found the perfect pieces for your party look yet? Then you are in luck. In this post I will share (and link) some of my favourite wears in the materials that own the nights this season.
Joining us from last year is Miss Velvet herself. Whether it is crushed or smooth, the material will speak for itself so that you can devote your voice to singing instead. To enhance the luxuriousity of it you should go for dark, gemstone-inspired colours such as emerald, saphire and ruby. And let’s not forget that black rarely goes wrong.
Outshine the stars by wearing sequins from head to toe or just have them peek out from underneath a blazer. In both ways you will look as lush as ever. Combine with garments in mesh for a more balanced look or add some additional shine to take it one step further. The choice is yours.
If you think sequins are a bit much but still want to shine bright like a diamond, these metallic pieces are here to save the day. The shades are inspired by natural elements and will rock things up (geology joke) in the most elegant way. Mix the colours for a bold look.
Representing the 1920’s are the fringes and tassels. This trend has especially been seen on earrings during the fall but is slowly making its way onto other garments as well. Wearing a fringed top, bottom or onepiece will, other than your look, certainly make your dance moves a whole lot more interesting.
If you want to keep things simple but still wish to add a little twist I would recommend you to look for pleated (also called plissé) pieces. They have that festive aura around them, especially if they are made of velvet or satin, but are rarely of an extravagant model or pattern.
Fur (all faux)
We are all familiar with the fur jacket by now, since it has been seen in every corner for the past two years, but in times like these they are almost a necessity to complete your party look. If you want to go for something a bit different though, you could try a fuzzy top or furry bag such as the ones below.
That was it for today, I hope you found something of interest. Stay original, gorgeous! xoxo
