Strictly Come Dancing is back with a bang this year, and as always we’re smitten with the stars on our screens. From Alison Hammond’s infectious laugh to Scott Mills’ perfect impression of a crab, it’s been a rollercoaster already. Plus, the dancing prowess on offer (most notably from Pixie Lott, Frankie Bridge, Caroline Flack and Jake Wood) is divine. If you’re anything like us at Littlewoods HQ, you’ll be veering towards sequins and glitter as of late.
In fact, we can’t wait to inject our wardrobes with a little more sparkle. Our Definitions Sequin Bandau Dress is a fine choice with its elegant cut, burnt red shade, and overall glimmering aesthetic. It would be a perfect choice for a Christmas party this season. Alternatively, there’s the Myleene Klass Sequin Maxi Dress. It reminds us of professional dancer Iveta Lukosiute, who is very rarely without leopard print in the training room. Plus, with sequins all over and a figure-hugging shape, this bandeau number definitely gets the Strictly stamp of approval.
We’ve been loving everyone’s take on the jive (seriously, where’s Jake been hiding those flexible hips?) so are particularly embracing fifties-inspired dresses. Our Definitions Jacquard 2-in-1 Prom Dress is an amazing choice thanks to the hot pink colour, but we also love the wonderfully metallic Little Mistress Stripe Dress. Frankie Bridge’s bandmate and pal Rochelle Humes has designed a fifties-style number for us too – check out the Rochelle Humes Mesh Panel Floral Print Prom Dress.
If you’re after graceful, sweeping, floor-length numbers used for elegant ballroom numbers, then look no further. Our Definitions Petite One Shoulder Turnback Maxi Dress is a winner – the bright colours are favourable, plus you’ve got the dancer’s favourite one-shoulder design. There’s also our Definitions Sequin Top Maxi Dress, which allows for beautiful movement across the floor.
Would you like to go the whole hog? Embrace the Charleston with our Purple 1920’s Flapper – Adult Costume. Insanely good for a fancy dress party in the pipeline, you’ll just have to perfect that signature swivel.
