Doing Christmas

Who knows what this year’s festive season is going to look like but as we near the end of lockdown and as we all cross our fingers that we’ll have more joy and fun in our lives, I thought I would have a little look at some sparkly bits and bobs to light up your life. Christmas parties may be off the agenda so all my picks are items you can dress down as well as up . Admittedly there are a couple of items that are a bit less dress down-able but are for those of you who will be having your own kitchen disco in full on sparkles!

The Sparkly Sweater

Scoop Back Sparkle Jumper £89 Hush

A nice, subtle starter that you can wheel out for everyday or for more special occasions. In addition to the black, there is a silver colour coming just in time for Christmas and also a bright pink.

Luci Crew neck Sparkle Jumper £69 Hush

Another goodie for dressing down with joggers for the school run or up with heels and any sort of bottom half from leather joggers to culottes, midi skirts and denim. They also do the same style with a lower scooped neckline also £69.


Ryker Sequin Sweatshirt £89 Hush

A more full on sequinned option that despite being heavy on the sparkle factor, can easily be dressed down with a pair of boyfriend jeans or as here with some leather.


Sequin Polo Neck Top £99 Mint Velvet

Or you can go for a more fitted style with a leather trouser, a pair of culottes or midi skirt.

The Statement Skirt

Jose Metallic Skirt £65 Hush

Now this is a good buy – it’s not too much sparkle that you will look over the top for a more low key occasion, but you can certainly also up the ante with a strappier top and different footwear.

Cassidy Pleated Skirt £98 Boden

This is selling super fast and out of stock in both regular and petite in many sizes and it’s easy to see why – with the pleats starting lower down, this will be more flattering for many than a regular pleated style.

Thea Pleated Velour Skirt £65 Hush

The sheen on the fabric will give you the right amount of lift for any party and still not look out of the place at the supermarket when dressed down. This also comes in black.

Simone Slinky Skirt £55 Hush

Or go for a satin instead and pair with a fluffy knit for the daytime or vamp it up with a lace edged cami and tuxedo jacket for the evening. This also comes in a leopard print.

Venetia Skirt £60 White Coco

This comes in one size which will fit 8-1, so if you want to go for it on the sparkle front, then this one is for you .

Sequin Pencil Skirt £89 Hush

Or try this one from Hush.

Sparkly Trews

Sequin Trousers £99 Hush

And here you are for dressed down glamour again.

Black Sequinned Jogger Trousers £89 Mint Velvet 

Black Sequin Wide Leg Trousers £89 Mint Velvet

Both these Mint Velvet options handily come in three different leg lengths.

The Sequin Blazer

Sequin Blazer £129 Hush

Gold Sequin Blazer £149 Mint Velvet 

I love these but appreciate this might look a touch out of place at the park…

And finally…

Amy Embellished Flats £140 Boden

I defy anyone not to feel like a modern day Cinderalla in these gorgeous shoes which will be just enough if you want to liven up leather joggers or just jeans.

I have really had to hold back and have stopped myself short of pulling out all the party stops – full on bling dresses and tops your time will come (fingers crossed). But do get ready to bag your bling this Black Friday.
