It’s almost Christmas, and I love using the festive season as a time to try out different looks and add a bit of sparkle when I’m catching up with friends. Bon Marche has a great selection of clothes perfect for the festive season which look great and offer good value, leaving you with plenty of money for a mulled wine and a mince pie!
I recently had the opportunity to review an item from the Bon Marche range, and after much thought, I chose the Lurex trailing top by David Emanuel. At quick glance this is an average top, it’s a dark knit with some flecks of gold, casual enough to wear on the school run or whilst doing your weekly shopping.
However, when it catches the light the magic happens, it really sparkles making it really eye catching, and perfect for the festive period! I wear a camisole underneath it for comfort, and incase I get too warm as it is quite a thick lurex – perfect for draughty festive events – of which I know I attend several! The sleeve lengths are 3/4 and really flattering with the sparkle ending half way down the sleeves and body of the top to create a slimming effect – perfect if like me you worry about a tummy bulge. I teamed it with dark denim jeans, and a pair of black wedges for a comfortable but festive look – perfect for drinks with friends.
I really like my new sparkly top, and I can see me wearing it to my friends Christmas drinks party while sipping a glass of mulled wine!
