The party season is under way and it's time to add some bling to your closet. The runways were full of all sorts of festive attire from Great Gatsby-inspired frocks to little black dresses and tuxedos.

Embellishments were also a big trend as beads, pearls and sequins decorated tops and dresses at Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana (left). Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton chose feathers, while fringing was another favourite that will continue through to next season. The right fabrics can also take an outfit from drab to fab so swap classic lace for metallic leather or jacquard as seen at Dries Van Noten.
