Well party season has arrived and there is no better season to get your glam on! Sequins, sparkles, glitter it’s all going on in the shops and you can go as subtle or as dramatic as you dare!
So here’s me last Saturday night as I headied out with hubby and friends for the evening – everything is quite typical of me… apart from my new sequin top – it’s a subtle nod to acknowledge that it’s time to step it up… for dare I say…. Christmas.
If you are on Instagram then over the next few weeks use the hashtag #getyoursparkeon when you are wearing your sequins and sparkle outfits, and I’ll repost my favourites on my Instastories.
I shopped for this top as part of my recent shopping trip to Rushden Lakes, all the tops you see where in store at the time. And for once it was nice to have some help in the changing room!
The brief for this blog was it had to be top that you can easily wear with jeans or trousers just to add a little sparkle on a night out. Apart from one top below, all of them have sequins, sadly New Look didn’t have any that we felt were nice enough to show on the blog, however the top we selected was a lovely colour and would add some sparkle to a night out.
I’m also particularly loving the purple sequins, I felt this was a lovely alternative to just gold or silver, and the purple one from River Island is still a potential on my hit list! You will probably also notice that the H&M and the NEXT look exactly the same (believe me I had to do a double take with the photos for this post) but they are not; I purchased the NEXT as it was a much better weight of garment, and the quality was unbelievable for the price of £20! Yes £20 – and it’s an item that won’t date, you can wear party season to party season.
I also spotted the silver River Island sequin top on the catwalk at Stylist Live last week, I think this looks much better tucked in, as you will see it was quite long in length – and I think it looks pretty cool with velvet trousers – a real glam vibe. Love it!

Was £45, Now £25
Black sequin embellished frill sleeve top
They say black, but it was multi-colour with a strong hint of purple. I think the shorter sleeve makes this more versatile with jackets to wear it with. Love this a lot, you could easily size down for a more fitted look.
Top with sequins
Black & Silver
This may be cheaper than the NEXT tee, but it’s no where near as good in quality but fit was absolutely fine.
Sorry ladies, I couldn’t find it on the website, so if you love it, you’ll have to head in store. There is a knot tie at the front, making this a short top to wear, either for those of you who are happy to show off your midriff or you’ll need a high-waist pair of jeans or trousers on.
And the one I bought….
My version is black/silver, they also do it in blue, blush and teal. I sized down one size and it’s still a loose fit.
