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.
