Dorothy Perkins Have The Best Sparkly Outfits For Every Body Type
Sequin dresses, glitter knits and plus size going out wear? Dorothy Perkins are throwing a party and every body is invited
Newsflash: it’s party season. And whilst the endless calendar invites for long overdue catch-ups and Christmas parties are seriously fun, the shop for that all-important outfit in the lead up can be anything but. Every season we see old favourites and new trends emerge that promise to be the answers to our going-out woes but, as we’ve learnt over the years, it can sometimes feel like some partywear trends were made to favour some bodies over others (we’re looking at you, cycling shorts). But luckily, Dorothy Perkins have stepped in to prove that everyone’s favourite party look – sequins and sparkle - is perfect for every body type. After all, the ability to standout and sparkle at Christmas isn’t a luxury, it’s a basic human right. Tall, petite, curvy or slender: if you want to shine at your next festive get-together look no further than our edit of the best sequin dresses and glittering outfits from Dorothy Perkins for all body types.
Best For...Enhancing Curves
Accentuate every curve you already have or create some in a flash with a sequin bodycon dresse that hugs and carves the figure in all the right places. The movement of colour from dark red to light and shimmery draws the eyes down to create the illusion of a mini waist before skimming the hips for a gorgeous hour glass shape.
Go boldly over the rainbow in a sparkling two-piece that’ll give the disco ball a run for its money. Whilst Dorothy Perkins boast a Tall party range, we think this sparkling sequin co-ord is a great bet for those over 5’9. The top is a little longer in length already, whilst the midi skirt can creep up above the knee and still look fierce. Better still, you can wear them separately long after the party is over too – trust us, the skirt looks incredible with a chunky knit and trainers.
Best For...The Super Slight
This simple slip shape looks best when it hangs a little loose for the ultimate 90s supermodel vibe, so it may be worth scaling up a size for an effortless look. Short and sweet, it looks great on taller women with a black stiletto boot. But don’t worry, those who lack height can lengthen the leg with a barely-there heel and look just as sensational.
Best For...Plus Size
This sparkling Bardot dress from the Dorothy Perkins Curve range is all you want for Christmas and more. Where bright sequins can sometimes prove a little noisy for some, this glittering skater shape draws the eye in and holds its gaze for longer thanks to its elegant neckline, nippy waist and flattering flared skirt. The sparkle accentuates rather than distracts, meaning you can go bolder with your lip colour or accessories.
The best things come in small packages, like this Petite all-over sequin dress. The capped sleeves define the shoulders and contrast against the nipped-in waist so you get a great hourglass shape whilst the mini length shows plenty of leg to create the illusion of extra height. Give yourself an extra boost in metallic block heels – a flattering finishing touch, and a sneaky way to pace yourself on the dance floor.
