Autumn Winter Catwalk trends - Oversize Sequins or Paillettes at Christopher Kane

Trend Alert: Oversize Sequins

Sequins have been around for a while now – witness the huge success of those 60s style, French Connection dresses last winter – but this autumn/winter, they're getting super sized!

Large sequins, or paillettes as they're known in fashion-speak, adorned the edgy creations on the catwalk at Christopher Kane, and Italian label Krizia, also seemed to have caught the glitter bug.

For a Christopher Kane look – hot from the runway – pair your paillettes with contrasting fabrics, such as sheer chiffon or leather. Add chunky-heeled sandals and an arm cuff and you have your new season party look sorted.

On the high street, look for sequin-embellished clutch bags, belted cardis that are part Burberry, part Christopher Kane, at River Island and Topshop, and paillette encrusted party jackets at Monsoon.

Keep hair simple and sleek to avoid glamour overkill, or work the gothic look with smoky eyes and va va vamp lips. Shine on.
