So yesterday I hit the shopping circuit for our annual now-broke year ending wardrobe oh-I-don’t-have-anything-to-wear crisis management. When I hit bed at 1.00am having trapezed from Andheri to Crawford market to Lower Parel to Chor Bazar, wolfing down falooda and home-made ice cream at Badshah, mutton shawarma and Parsi goodies at Persepolis Colaba…yes, crash course in bargaining will be charged please. Do comment 🙂

There’s something about the holiday season that makes us want to dress like a disco ball, and sequins serve as our preferred method for doing so. We choose to go about it in good taste, of course, opting for clean lines, vintage pieces and classic silhouettes.

For a showier moment, we love a shimmering dress with pared-back accessories like a satin pouch and simple sandals —classic. If not a head-to-toe look, tempering a sparkly top with denim is also a favorite. What’s cooler than a one-shoulder silhouette with high-waist jeans and a killer party shoe? A simple T-shirt tucked into glittering high-waist trousers is likewise achingly chic.

Reaching beyond gold and silver is important—choose glimmering black for subtlety, or colorful sparkle for a bolder moment. If you go the vibrant route, be sure to keep your accessories and beauty streamlined—you don’t want to OD on the dazzle.

Here’s our pick of High Street Fashion where we shopped and came out top satisfaction guaranteed: Forever 21, Zara, Mango, Forever New, Splash Fashions, Lulu & Sky, The Label Life, Isharya. 

Happy Shopping
