 Sequins bring a festive spark to any outfit. Even the simplest of little black dresses, like those worn by Olivia Palermo and Abigail Breslin, look party-ready when covered in glitter. Just remember to keep the rest of your accessories to a minimum; a pair of pretty pumps and a classic clutch is all you need to shine all night long.

Get this season’s shimmer and shine trend just right and you’ll look oh-so awesome. Get it wrong and, well, you’ll look like Tinkerbell from the local panto. Never has it been so important to master the art of balancing muted clothing with accents of statement-making. Ladies, get your note pads and pens out. It’s time for a trend masterclass.

The new way to shine goes like this: your outfit needs to be a base of understated, well-tailored pieces and then turn on the fashion charm with one magic accessory, or key-piece that turns heads. An understated LBD will be set alight with a glitterball clutch and dazzling heels. Alternately, a dress that shimmers head-to-toe requires easy-going accessories in complimentary colours. It’s a balancing act between sophistication and sheer devil-may-care dressing.

The main ingredient for success with this trend? Confidence and a glass of Champagne. Sante, sweetie!
