The Staple Sequin
Miu Miu’s Fall 2017 Ready to wear collection includes plenty of sequin adoration to get those creative juices flowing for this must-have piece. Ok, so we don’t all have £3,580 in our back pocket but there are plenty more options out there to channel this trend through this summer.


Missguided are fully embracing the sequin trend and this number is just £25. Pair with denim shorts for a summer festival look. (Available here)

Glitzy Tassels

If you haven’t noticed, tassels are everywhere this season, including on the Phelan Spring 17 Ready to Wear collection catwalk, and the more the better. So why not go all out in show stopping metallic, glitter tassels? It’s a brave look but one that’s sure to get you noticed and Instagram ready.

An up and coming brand and a rising star in festival wear, this is the place to go for loud and bold tassels and tinsel. My fave is the ‘Disco Dreams Jacket’. For an added touch all these pieces are made to order – £200. (Available here)

For a slightly more subdued look, try this vegan leather jacket with a shimmery multicoloured fringe from Nasty Gal. Pair with a simple white tee and blue jeans – £50.(Available here)

The Metallic Shoe
Not ready to go full on glitz? Not to worry, why not give a subtle nod to the trend instead with some stand out metallic footwear?
