Bold embellishment brings a touch of glamour to the collection; sparkly shoulder details transform simple tees while staple knits and jersey tops are adorned with sequin floral prints and cute slogans. For ultimate glamour a stunning full sequin shift is the party dress of the season, finish the look off with an elegant cropped fur jacket to be the belle of the ball.
