Trendsetter and Shopcade Curator, @NatalieCorner gives us an insight into her Electric Embellishment list and how she plans to work the look this season.
Over to you, Nat…
What I love about this trend is there are no rules. When it comes to embellishment; you can go big and glitzy or small and delicate.
Gone are the days when you reserved your best sequin top to go with your best skirt for your big night out. Nope, these days a sprinkle of those sequin charms goes fantastically with a soft knit to bring the tone down for work, or that perfect blazer to smarten you up but to keep you from bedazzling clients too much.
Add a smattering of beads for your day-to-day wardrobe, and that extra sparkle on your clothes will make you feel a million dollars inside. Ramp up the jewels on your big night and glisten like a Hollywood star on the red carpet, it’s all about how the glitz and glamour makes you feel.
When it came to making my Electric Embellishment list for Shopcade, I was inspired not just by the Christmas party season fast approaching but also the different ways in which I could inject a little glitter in to my normal wardrobe.
I’m not necessarily someone who likes to pile on the sequins head to toe but by pairing one embellished piece like this Cross Front Embellished Bralet from Topshop, with a different texture like these Velvet Suit Trousers from Mango and topping it off with these amazing Gold Leather High Heels from Office, would make me feel electric at a party!
Or for something a little more understated? These ASOS Slippers with a bejewelled heel would work perfectly with this cute Grey Jewel Flower Crop top from New Look a touch of structure with a Contrast Lapel Blazer from ASOS and a pair of jeans from my Denim Delight list.
The best thing about creating Shopcade lists, is that once you have all your lists you can mix and match trends to create a brand new one, or just become more individual and unique when you’re putting a look together.
And of course you have a record of everything you’ve ever wanted and you can keep coming back and adding more, there’s no limit – well maybe only my bank balance… 😉
