Razzle dazzle, glitz and high shine are having a moment again this season with designers incorporating metallics, sequins and molten silks in their collections. 

The flamboyant trend feels fun, radiant and uplifting – so deck the halls with shimmer and wear high shine head to toe, or pick out one sparkly item and pare it back with subtle denim or suiting.
