A little sparkle goes a long way, so make sure you stack up on some shiny pieces for SS2017. Add a little disco to your #ootd. Opt for metallic (Haider Ackermann, Balmain), choose for sequins (Kenzo, Gucci, Marc Jacobs) or wow in crystal beads (Proenze Schouler). Taking the trend a little further you can of course add some shimmer in the shape of jewelry (Kenzo) and make-up too (eyes and nails deserve some extra spark too). Oh and of course then there are Gucci’s crystal encrusted glasses. What ever you do, don’t hold back. Shine on and, for everyone who’s looking; make it worth their while.

If you look around at what shoes the cool girls are wearing to a fashion event these days, you’ll notice all shoes are shiny and sparkly. And that’s not just a coincidence. It’s high times for velvet boots and glitter boots. Philip Lim and Dries van Noten already felt it, the high street shops are seeing it now. And why wouldn’t a purple velvet bootie become the shoe of the year? It’s super chic under a pair of patched denim trousers and it’s the highly elegant matched with a slipdress too. Just pick the color of your choice (we say green, purple, gold or silver) and start parading. Sparkling and glossy footwear at Victoria Beckham and Tommy Hilfiger too. Walk into the holiday season with these shiny booties worthy of a true Cinderella moment. Shine bright like a velvet bootay.

Trend Report FW2016: Shine your way into the new year

Fall season represents the end of bikini’s and other sexy summer wear, but it has its charme on its own. And that brings a noticeable -and likeable- shift in the amount of clothes and fabrics we wear. Of course, we need to get more warm and comfy, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still be alluring. For the women who love anything shiny, the designers haven’t let you down. On the contrary, the catwalks were dripping in shiny fabrics. Some went for full-on, dazzling (Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton and Cavalli) others more demure and sophisticated (Margiela, Philipp Plein and Liselore Frowijn). Translated through metallics, satin, brocade, soft silks, sequins and sparkly embellishment. But the main thing to remember for this trend: it’s highly wearable. You don’t have to be a model to pull this one off. You don’t have to pretend like you’re walking on a catwalk or you’re about to attend The Grand Ball. Any of that, most of these looks are suitable on a daily basis (okay, the dresses might be quite challenging at the office) and especially this december month. So don’t be afraid to throw on a shiny bomber jacket as seen at Alex Wang or a toned-down shiny wintercoat spotted at Valentino. So chop chop, get on it and make some space in your wardrobe for this holiday-ready fashion statement.
