Trend Alert: metalics, sequins, silks and all things shiny!
Alexander McQueen, Givenchy & Giles s/s 2012 shows all showcase how the use of sequins and metallic shades can be super sexy and glamorous! Metallics are great as they can be dressed up or down and are suitable for all occasions and are perfect for summer! (when we eventually have one). Not sure how to wear all this glitzy fashion? Simple – team them with your essentials and basics to instantly update your look. Now we all wish we could afford a McQueen garment (my dream come true), but unfortunately not many of us can – so I’ve pulled together some of my favourite pieces from some of the leading High Street stores which are much more affordable.
