Make like a modern starlet

As you may have already noticed, the new-season favourites for women’s designer clothes appear to be both lace and sequins. This may be partly to do with fashion’s current obsession with a gothic twist but also, let’s face it, lace and sequins are a perennial favourite in the autumn and winter party circuit.

When considering this trend, it is however important to choose wisely. There is a fine line between sophisticated party romance and lingerie.

A white lace blouse is the perfect addition to an existing autumn wardrobe, as it will instantly update a large number of outfits. Although it appears in a pretty light manner, it has just the right amount of gothic luxury to tie in with this season’s most sought after trends. Team with a pencil skirt or cigarette pants in order to personify modern romance.

A red lace dress may seem like an extremely bold statement, it can however be toned down with the right accessories. The Christmas party season is probably the only time you can get away with proper blow-your-socks-off glamour. In order to style such a trend to other occasions, team with paired-back simplicity. The high street is currently showcasing a number of red-lace variations, a simply cut and style is however the key to nailing this trend.

Stay away from frills, unless you wish to veer in flamenco territory. Instead make like a modern starlet and keep hair and make-up minimal and to the point of invisibility.

Those that are little more daring when it comes to fashion may wish to team items together that shouldn’t work. This season’s suited and booted trend boasts both a little bit of prince and a little regal princess. A trouser suit is most certainly the final word in modern rococo glamour. In keeping with the military trend, this exact style is the epitome of power dressing. Wear to the office and then on to a number of after work social events. Getting what you want will come naturally.

Sophisticated seductiveness is another proceeding that has landed on a number of this season’s runways; winter being no exception. A heady mix of sequins and lace makes for the perfect party attire. Such a style shouldn’t however be worn by the shy and retiring wallflower.

Sequins and lace are certainly having an enduring love affair this season and many of 2012’s trends are revealing a certain element of vintage style. Mix it up a little by teaming cashmere, over sized sweaters with sequin shorts and high top trainers. This 1980s feel will most certainly turn a few heads at any Christmas events you may have marked down in the diary.
