The party season has started and boutiques and shops have amped up party wear with a high glam factor. Expect to see an abundance of sparkle and shimmer, lace, dark florals, and velvet.

Sparkle and shimmer

Sparkly garments are always a feature of party season collections, but this time around it is a dominant trend and comes mostly in neutral hues of black, navy, or white and nudes, and as a dress, a skirt, or a jacket. To best wear the trend, keep the accessories to a minimum. A plain clutch or pair of shoes will finish the look perfectly.

If you prefer to stay away from too much sparkle, try to incorporate the look in your accessories and jewellery. A sequinned bag or shoes can glam up any outfit.


This party season collections will see beautiful pieces in vivid tones layered on textured dark backgrounds. The elegant florals are found in dresses or accessories and can be worn with more edgy accessories such as dressy ankle boots or a bright coloured handbag and jewellery.

Statement lace and velvet

This season lace and velvet pieces are feminine with a fierce edge. These modern cut outfits come in luxurious shades of green, burgundy, black, and midnight blue. Whether you are going for trousers, jacket, or skirt, wear these trophy pieces with equally luxurious accessories. A sparkly necklace or clutch will complement the look.
