The inspiration for your next Christmas party look comes directly from the catwalk. Get ready to shine with these playful and glam trends.
Fringes became a popular trend in the 1920s, the flappers' era, and they have been trickling in and out of fashion. Fringes made their huge comeback in 2016 but eventually faded away. In 2021, the trend has returned from the rise of social media. Celebrities and influencers such as Tess Holliday and Bella Hadid have adopted fringes in a glamorous and appealing form. Pick fringes made of pearls, rhinestones or beads and pair them with a simplistic outfit to add a glamorous touch. To channel quirky vibes, find a fringe jacket, skirt or purse.
The balloon sleeves trend popped up in Spring 2018, on the 2020 runway, and it has carried onto 2021. There is no denying this trend adds a romantic and regal look without you even trying to. Experiment with different balloon sleeve shapes and size as they are an excellent statement piece to spice your wardrobe up.
Sparkles and glitter made their way onto the runway and shops. Versace SS21 and Tom Ford SS22 flaunted sequins, exaggerated metallic ruffles and shimmering fabrics. Search for a sequin and glittery co-cord if you wish for a dazzled look. For a subtle disco look, buy glittery shoes or a sequin top.
The cheeky, sexy and attention-seeking 1930s backless trend made its way back to the mainstream by celebrities such as Beyonce and Hailey Bieber with jaw-dropping backless gowns. Backless garments are a subtle statement that creates a long, elegant silhouette. There are endless ways you can style your backless dress. For an elegant look, add jewellery to cascade down your back. If you want business at the front and party at the back, find a fully open back.
Fishnets tend to spring up on the runway season to season. In 2016 fishnets started to appear frequently. This construction, rather than pattern, has transformed from simple fishnet tights to layering over clothes to add texture. Look for a fishnet top to layer under dresses and tops. Decide if you want to add fishnets to add an extra edge to your ensemble.
Silver and Metallic
We have seen silver in many designer runways for the last ten years. Think, for example, at Chanel and Louis Vuitton FW21 collections. This trend gives us a luxury vibe combined with mystery and retro chic. The silver trend encourages us to mix colours, patterns, and textures with silver. Silver captures the attention, so make sure you pick out a good quality silver. Opt for a silver dress for a total glam look or a silver mini skirt, belt and shoes for a modest version.
