Stop, Drop & Sparkle: The Party Edit

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With Bonfire Night, Christmas events and New Year’s Eve right around the corner, sequins, glitter and sparkles are popping up everywhere. When you’re wearing one of our new styles, there’s no outshining you this party season! 

So if you’re wanting to turn heads at your next event, look no further. Our style guide will give you all the inspiration you need to sparkle all night long. The belle shall go to the ball! 

Sparkly Midi Dresses

Sparkly dresses are the embodiment of glam. There are lots of options when it comes to midi dresses, depending on your style. If you like a tighter fitting dress, opt for one with ruching and an asymmetric hem to compliment the figure and make sure you’re contoured in all the right places. The asymmetry will help to balance out the glitter for more contrast, creating a more dramatic effect. This perfect party outfit is bound to create some style envy at your work Christmas party or on a girls night out. 

Don’t want a bodycon fit? No problem, you can always go for a midi-length dress with more flow. Wrap dresses and dresses with delicate sparkly overlays are also great options. 

If you can’t decide what colour glitter dress to go for we recommend picking a colour based on your hair! For example, If you have darker hair, go for a red, silver or rose gold, if you’re a blondie or a redhead, try black or green - this will help to create a natural contrast. 

The perfect way to glam up a midi dress is with jewellery, dig out your gold jewellery and your favourite pair of heels to complete this absolutely stunning party outfit.

Glitter Shirt Dresses

Glittery dresses are sure to make you stand out from the crowd, but shirt dresses really take the cake. Creating a contrast through interesting shapes and features, the perfect balance of casual and dresses up, glitter shirt dresses are going to get heads turning. Going against the traditional black, gold, or silver sparkles, we recommend going for colours such as blue and green to really stand out.

This is an ideal party outfit for winter events, whilst the sequins or glitter will dazzle those around you, all eyes will be on you. If you want to accessorise, just don your favourite pair of heels and a simple bag, or you can use a waist cinching belt. If you want to style it up, go for a complimenting pair of earrings or a headpiece such as glittery pins or clips. You could even add some glitter thread through your hair for extra sparkle!

Sequin Jumper Dresses

A sparkle jumper dress is a dream come true for those times where you don’t want to look too smart or too casual. Perfect for daytime and evening parties, this outfit is easily dressed up or down, no matter where you’re going! 

A black jumper dress is contrasted by the sequined shoulders for a dramatic look, and is perfect for those who like a more casual look with a little glam. If heels aren’t your thing, you can rock it with a pair of boots and a statement handbag. 

If you want something a little more festive and a little brighter try a festive red or green sequin jumper dress, sure to give the sparkle of the Christmas tree a run for its money.

Perfect for casual wear, you can still sparkle away at day drinks, brunch, or even just at the office. There are so many ways to wear a jumper dress, with a pair of leather leggings, a pair of knee high boots or even with heels and a belt. This versatile piece could be just what your winter wardrobe is missing.

Pleated Glitter Dresses

A pleated glitter dress is usually more toned-down. The subtle sparkles will glimmer all night long, so you’re sure to feel like a princess as the flowy dress moves with you as you dance the night away.

Vibrant colours are perfect for the winter, as they’ll stand out in the cold nights and frosty weather, and of course you’ll be the most colourful person in the room! Dress it up or down, and wear this colourful gown to weddings, parties, day drinks, or anywhere else you can think of. 


  We recommend going for a long-sleeved dress to keep you warm. A dress with glitter woven into it is best for a more subtle shimmer. If you want to stand out with just a little bit of glitter, opt for a dress with an interesting print. For example, a geometric print gives off major style vibes, and you’ll be sure to compete with the disco ball when the light catches you just right. 

We recommend you accessorise with a simple belt, heels, and a small clutch bag. Shimmer your way into the new year with a dream pleated sparkly dress.

Glitter Coats & Sequin Jackets

Don’t let the cold stop you from shining. If you want even more glitz and glam, add a sparkly coat to your outfit, perfect for travelling to and from parties or drinks. There’s no reason for you to dull your shine! Find a coat woven with glitter thread to add that extra bit of sparkle. Wear it fastened up to keep you warm, or open to show off that glamorous outfit underneath. 

Alternatively, you can add a sequined coat or jacket to glam up an otherwise plain outfit. Pair a little black dress with a dazzling jacket to create a festive look.
