AW14 Fashion Trend #3

Ciao ♥ It's just gone past midnight and I'm currently snuggled up with an oversized blanket as I sip on a hot cup of cinnamon tea. Rather than doing the norm of heading off to bed, I want nothing more to do than to get this blog post published. So guess what... I'm back today with the third installment of my AW14 Fashion Trends blog post series. Can I get a whoop?

So far I've received an amazing response to the first two installments which fashionably focused on the swingin' 60s and faux fur. Hopefully Trend #3 will go down just as well with you guys although I do have a slight inkling that some of you will be thinking, ERM REALLY? :/ Roll your eyes at me not as I can assure you that once you've read this post, you'll be scanning the websites of your favourite high-street stores, hoping to update your wardrobe in accordance to this trend.

The third trend of this series is ever so sparkly and glitzy as it's glitter. I'm sure that isn't quite what some of you expected to hear, nor is it something that many of you would ever dare to incorporate into your everyday outfits. Don't worry, I get it. None of us ladies want to resemble a six year old after they've been handed some PVA glue and glitter tubes. However, this is a trend that you are sure to see more and more of as it's perfect for the festive and Christmas party season which will be upon our doorstep within the next couple of days.

For those who are still in doubt as to whether glitter is actually trending in the fashion world (I promise I'm not making this up) feast your eyes on a selection of my favourite looks from the catwalk. Yes! Glitter was sprinkled all over the runway as it appeared in the AW14-15 collections of Christian Dior, Marc Jacobs, Mary Katrantzou, Rochas, Rodarte and many more. Convinced now? :)

 

The glitter trend is not something that needs to be excessively worn in order to receive an instant wow factor. Glitter, no matter how much or how little, can instantly glamourise any outfit and helps to transform it into something that is dressy uppy. For those who wish to incorporate just a hint of this trend, why not opt for some glitter embellishment jewellery or glitter accessories such as a hair scrunchie, clutch or belt.

Below is a collection of my favourite glitter finds from the high-street and online stores, all of which are currently available to purchase. What are you favourite pieces from this selection? I'm loving the glitter jacquard pelmet skirt and the metallic pointed courts

Ciao ♥ Xx
