Razzle Dazzle Trend...



Textural and sparkly, this trend instantly makes us think of the circus. It’s busy, exciting and show stopping. The catwalks featured this look heavily, choosing glittering embellishments, tassels and heavy detailing centre stage.

Textured accessories are a great way to integrate this trend into your wardrobe. When choosing accessories, more is more, so pick bags covered in beading or jackets with ruffled embellishment.
The awards season certainly saw this look take hold where glitz and glamour is never too much. Ball gowns head to toe in lace, beading and intricately sewn patterns were very popular on the red carpet.

To get the look, choose simple shaped clothing like a shift dress or capped sleeved top and let the razzle dazzle do the talking.

Often combined with the Sports Luxe trend, this look was worn all over on bomber jackets and tailored skirts. However, it was also given a feminine edge by adding small areas of beadwork and combining lace sleeves with sequins for a smoky evening look.
