Glitzy Winter

The time for dressing up and partying is fast approaching, and this year fashion has politely accepted the challenge and given in to glitzy, sparkly glamour.

There is always a little sparkle at this time of year, but this season you can go all out and glimmer the night away. You will see celebs in dresses seemingly made out of sequins & oversized crystals, but how does the normal curvy woman pull off such a flamboyant look?

Firstly, keep the silhouette simple with a basic cut tunic or t-shirt which is embellished, to avoid full on glitz. For a special occasion choose a shimmering dress with a classic but simple cut which skims your curves and flatters your shape.

Keep your accessories simple - this season sees a huge rise in geek chic extras such as school style sock and shoes. You will also need to minimise the make up and keep hair sleek to balance the look.

Pictured you can see Fern Britton looking fab in a classic cut little black dress which shimmers from head to foot, paired with a matching shimmery shrug. If you aren't brave enough to go for top to toe sparkle, try pairing a plain dress with a sparkly shrug.
