Oh La La!

With Christmas right around the corner, there is no better time than now to inject your wardrobe with a little glitter and sparkle to keep you shinning throughout the holiday season.

Glam, glitter and sparkle are just a few key words you want to keep in mind when preparing for any event this season.  This glam couture look is an essential trend for upcoming seasons thanks to an endless parade of sparkling sequins, glitter, metallic, appliqués and fringed fabrics hitting the streets of late.

From Elie Saab’s sequined dresses through to Miu Miu glittering boots, this high shine trend has reinvented itself yet again making it a big hit on the runways.



A-lister stars who favour the revival of this gleaming 70s disco trend are Kate Moss, Rachel Zoe, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Connelly, Nina Dobrev, Mila Kunis and Brooklyn Decker.


To avoid looking OTT, stick to the motto “less is more” to ensure you make the right fashion statement.  Modern tailoring and mixing matte fabrics can be paired with your dazzler piece to ensure this never occurs.  The aim is to ensure that you come across as sophisticated yet dramatic.

Another favorite making its way back is the ever so cute mini.  Even shorter than ever, this little number (in either metallic or a sparkling sequence) will most certainly make you the centre of attention.

If being the centre of attention isn’t your thing, then how about adding a little sparkle with embellished tights to your wardrobe in the upcoming cooler months?

This Season’s Hottest Men’s Fashion Trend

Military remains in fashion for both men and women in Autumn/Winter 2010-11, with inspiration drawn from the 1940s and 50s military.  A particularly popular military-themed trend is the army and air force influenced combat boot for men’s fashion.  These shoes come in a variety of styles, from military to motorcycle boots, that can match any sense of style.

Re-introduced by Christopher Bailey’s Burberry Autumn collection in 2010, the trend of the combat boot remains chunky and utilitarian essential for the colder seasons. 

Perfect with this season’s chunky knits, checked flannel shirts or a pair of Diesel jeans, this timeless rustic vintage style can pretty much be worn to any occasion.  As shown below, actor Hayden Christensen was recently spotted in Los Angeles wearing a pair of military side zip boots that are right on trend.

This look can easily be dressed up or down and incorporated into many different styles. Pair a sleek military-style jacket with dark jeans and a sweater for an outfit that is simple and nostalgic, yet still masculine.
