I love a bit of metallic at the best of times, but I reeeeally love indulging my love for all things that sparkle, during the festive season, and that includes my passion for champagne too! What with the bubbles and reflective metals, it makes me feel all misty-eyed and wrapped in a lovely warm glow.

So, I couldn’t resist a little retail therapy by selecting a few keys pieces for you to shop, and that will ensure you shimmer during the Christmas party season:

I’ve kept this look on the low-key side, by mixing just pewter and rose gold, then balanced with black jeans, cape and clutch, but you can build-up the effect with metallic nail varnish and eyeshadow.

I often find myself going from work to drinks and/or dinner, and so I would wear this look to the office, but swap the sandals for a stiletto boot or a metallic pump, and pop on a little knitted jacket or a blazer. And then, when you’re ready to go out – pop on the necklace, sandals and cape, then put all your essentials into the clutch purse (don’t forget phone and house keys!), and leave your ‘day’ bag at the office. If walking in heels is not your favourite pastime; then pop some little plimsoles into the clutch, so that you can change for the journey home.

Happy shimmering!
