They say all that glitters is gold and, this season, it certainly seems to be true – with partywear at Debenhams showcasing stunning gold, with the added infusion of classic black…
Gazing over the gorgeous gowns on offer across Debenhams brands at the moment, there’s more than a twinkle on the dresses, but one in our eyes too. If simple gold is a favourite of yours, then we’ve many glamorous options – with two tone numbers for those who wish to funk up their festive attire.
Spotted on celebs such as Emma Stone, Jessica Alba and Taylor Swift – plus on the catwalk for Salvatore Ferragamo and Dolce & Gabbana, the combination of black and gold is a head-turner fit for any red-carpet moment.
Available in a vast array of styles, golden delights – some with a touch of LBD glamour – are available as bodycons, jacquard designs, embellishment and sequins, maxi and peplum. Well, isn’t Christmas supposed to be about gold, frankincense and myrrh?

Our Designers at Debenhams have all jumped on the gold and glittering bandwagon this year, with Julien Macdonald, Jenny Packham and Henry Holland all demonstrating why their style instincts are worth their weight in gold.
What’s more, Phase Eight has recently launched a brand new range, Collection 8, a line of premium occasionwear that presents luxury fabrics and beading, culminating in dresses that ooze Hollywood glamour. Our favourites are the sequin mesh golden maxi (as seen above in feature image) and the beaded design that merges black into gold – an on-trend look with timeless appeal.
If you aren’t looking to be a full-on golden girl, then why not opt for a few statement accessories? A beautiful statement necklace, bedazzling clutch or sexy shoes can go a long way to vamping up an outfit. Think of Rihanna at the MTV music awards 2012 – during her blonde phase – when she wore a sleek black maxi dress, complete with the simple accessory of a shimmering gold clutch bag.

Remember that this season – all that glitters, doesn’t have to be just gold…
