Strictly Come Dancing may be over for another year but if you’re already missing the showstopping outfits how about introducing a little festive sparkle into your wardrobe just in time for the party season? Think sequins, glitter and tassels…and not just for evening; you can work a little embellishment into your daytime outfit without looking over the top. One of the easiest ways to sparkle your way through Christmas Day without getting too dressed up is to wear a sequin jacket; you can throw it on over a plain top paired with jeans for a festive and comfortable look.
I’ve had this sequin jacket from Next in my wardrobe for years, unworn and with the tags still attached. It’s so easy to forget about items of clothing when you have every coat hanger layered to the max. The material is stretchy so it’s really comfortable to wear. Plus, the sequins aren’t too scratchy (one thing that can put me off wearing them). I’m keeping the look casual with boyfriend jeans, while adding a feminine touch with the court shoes. I found the sparkly ring in a charity shop…like a magpie I was drawn to it! It’s like my very own personal bauble!
