90s fashion, 80s fashion

Party season is here and what better way to get into the festive spirit than with some sequins and sparkles? Vintage clothing makes the perfect party wear and not simply because you aren’t in danger of someone turning up in the same outfit as you.

Whether you want to bring the disco to your office Christmas party or want to add a little sparkle to your festive date night, there are hundreds of ways in which you can add a little bit of glitz to your festive looks through vintage clothing and we’re here to talk you through some of them.

If you’re looking for some serious Christmas sparkles, the 80’s are definitely the decade for you. 80’s fashion is all about excess and glamour, so it’s no surprise that when we’re looking for a show-stopping look, this is our source of inspiration.

A sequin top is a classic look that will never go out of fashion and in a vintage boutique like ours, you’ll find them in a range of colours and styles to suit every taste. From pink to silver and every colour in between, you’ll be sure to find the perfect sequin top for your Christmas and New Year parties. Pair it with a black skirt or jeans for a sophisticated look or for a more relaxed outfit, vintage Levi’s jeans will make the perfect companion.

If you’re looking for a little more glamour then vintage boutiques often have sequin dresses. These dresses make the easiest way to dress for the festive season because you don’t even need to accessorise them, just throw it on for instant sparkle.

For those of you that would prefer a more subtle approach to sequins, try a bolero or other cover-up. This adds a little sparkle to your outfit without making you feel too much little a glitter ball. Incredibly easy to style, these pieces are a must for any wardrobe as you can wear them again and again, whenever you want to add a bit of glitz to your outfit.

Glittery accessories are another easy way to get into the festive spirit. There is no easier way to make a statement than with a sequin clutch bag and it’s more than likely that they will match whatever you wear. When it comes to shopping for vintage accessories, you’ll find plenty that have beading or sequins so you’ll definitely be spoilt for choice.
