AW12 Trends: Winter Jewels & Metallics

Looking glitz and glam can be difficult during the winter season but some trends this winter can help us shimmer and sparkle! Metallic and baroque fabrics, as well as studs, spikes and jewels are all major current trends, which will see you through day and night. Remember metallic hues and jewelled collars aren’t just for Christmas party dresses; these trends have the flexibility to be dressed up and down.


The Embellished Collar

It’s definitely worth checking out Missguided’s delicious selection of embellished collar shirts; in particular the Sequin Collar Vest Blouse. A sleeveless blouse in a seasonal deep green shade with a sparkling gold collar priced at £20.99 from Missguided’s exclusive Peace and Love range. Dress this down and wear through the day with some denim shorts or jeans or dress this little shirt up with a black leather skater skirt to ensure you’ll steal the show.


The Baroque Dress

If you’re looking for a statement dress this Autumn/Winter then look no further than ASOS. The ASOS Dolly Dress in Baroque Print priced at £75.00 oozes elegance. The sweetheart neckline and cut-out upper back combined with the striking gold print makes this a top must have for AW12.


The Metallic Shimmer Jumper

You are sure to find all your metallic winter needs at Boohoo. The Alexa Metallic Foil Jumper (£25.00) is the most shiny piece of knitwear you’ll come across this season. The jumper is available in black or gold and will make those worn-out jeans look utterly fabulous.


Gold Disco Pants

Let’s face it…there is no bigger statement essential this winter than metallic disco pants. Wet look leggings are a bit of a marmite product, love them or hate them? At Ark Clothing you’ll find high waisted, high shine leggings (£29.99) a key item that’s wearable all day, night and morning long!


The Studded Clutch

Investing in a statement accessory is way more important than any piece of clothing. If you can’t afford the whole on-trend wardrobe or simply love your studs and want to where them with everything, take a peek at Miss Selfridge’s collection of clutches. The Black Suede Stud Edge Clutch (£35.00) is sure to compliment your disco pants, denim shorts and even your winter maxi party dress.


The Spiked Hat

And finally, if you are loving the grunge trend and live in your leather jacket, you have to get yourself onto They’ve got some amazing ultra-jewelled, heavily embellished snapback caps at the moment. My favourite? It has to be the Sasperilla Silver Spike Snapback at £20.00.
