Starlight, star bright
It’s time to shine, ladies—literally—as Autumn/Winter 2015 runways were resplendent with all things sparkly.
It’s time to shine, ladies—literally—as Autumn/Winter 2015 runways were resplendent with all things sparkly. From sequin stripes to lurex prints and tinsel knits, designers like Valentino have tapped the casual-glam side of star-crossed style, creating shimmery looks that effortlessly move from day to night with a focus on fabric and texture.
But if the thought of excess sparkle has you shivering in your biker boots, fear not. We here at Tu have put together a guide to shimmer to suit every shape.
By the time we’re through, we’ll have you wishing you may, wishing you might, rock the first starry style you see tonight!
For the more curvaceous gal, opt for a curve-flattering pencil skirt in shimmering rose champagne. Your figure will literally light up (in the best possible way) in this hip-skimming number, so much so that the rest of your look will require demure pacing.
Luckily, this elegant black vest and these sling-back pumps in a matte-glittery pewter will do just the trick.
For flattering shimmer on boyish figures, try dressing up your denim in shades of champagne, midnight and pewter, like with these bronze glitter skinnies.
Play to the softer side of this gritty look by emphasising warmer tones and team the jeans with a foil tee in champagne.
Go for quirky in the finish by slipping into these androgynous patent-toed suede monk shoes.
One shine fits all
Let’s face it, ultimately, there’s no girl glitter can’t glamify. Any body type can work this lurex tee-shirt mini dress in metallic midnight, a universal number which can be styled in as many ways as there are stars in the sky.
For a tougher look, pair with tights, boots and a biker jacket. Otherwise, streamline cosmic elegance with clean pumps, strands of pearls and a velvet wrap.
