Metallic Moment

Every autumn/winter there’s a metallic moment in fashion, right? It kind of goes with the territory, especially around the festive season. This year is no different. Well, actually, it is a wee bit different.

Some of that metallic moment this autumn/winter will be heavily influenced by the 1970s trend – and lurex is the fabric you are going to love! Fabric that incorporates a glittery thread, that’s lurex, and you are going to love it.

Like this gorgeous midi dress from French Connection (£75), for example? How can you not love this dress?
