Christmas party season is upon us and the fateful time has come to choose yet another black dress to wear to yet another Christmas party. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE an lbd: classic, sophisticated, but arguably boring?
Christmas is probably the only time (apart from Glastonbury) that we can wear whatever sparkle, glitter and twinkle the fashion Gods up in buying heaven dare to let loose on their websites. And I am 100% THERE.
I’ll wear your bodycon dresses, playsuits and wrap-around maxi dresses literally any other day of the year (pm me for my address yo) but if it’s not got a sequin on it at Christmas, I’m not touching it. I think my biggest regret in life is not wearing some form of glitter on my face every day of the year. Doesn’t it make you happy? It makes me happy.
That’s why I’m totally invested in Warehouse’s party dresses collection*. They just know that there are some women out there (i.e. – me) who will not be leaving the house between November 1st – December 31st unless they look like a giant Christmas bauble has thrown up on them.
There are 3 types of se-queens and fortunately Warehouse has provided for us all. What legends.
1. The ‘on-the-verge’ se-queen
You’re all for a bit of sparkle at Christmas but you’re not quite ready to throw in the lbd and commit to looking like Dame Edna Everage (understandably). You love a twinkle here and there but maybe not combined with a bright colour. You’re discreet, classy and I LIKE you.
You are: a sheer sequin panel dress!
2. The ‘halfway-house’ se-queen
You are a se-KEEN but maybe not so keen that you have diamantés adorning your toenails. You’re more than happy to commit to some sort of sparkle, but maybe not sequin on sequin on sequin?
You are: a rainbow sequin cami top!
3. The absolutely committed ‘I only wear sequins don’t @ me’ se-queen
You are here for it. The words ‘too glittery’ are not in your vocabulary and you’d give Strictly Come Dancing a run for its money the amount of glitz you own. You will wear glitter with jacquard with lurex with leopard print with sequins and that’s just to get milk.
You are: a sequin catsuit!
Which type of se-queen are you? Let me know!
