New season trend alert: Rich & Regal
BY LIZZIE, WOMENSWEAR EDITOR ON 28 AUG 2012 15:12 TRENDSCOMMENTS
Dare to be decadent this season with luxe lace, bold brocade patterns, rich colours and shimmering metallics. This autumn/winter Debenhams is bringing on the glamour and vamping it up to be Rich and Regal.
A huge trend for the colder months, this of course means the party season. With Rich & Regal all about the look of luxury, be sure to shimmer in golden tones by dressing it up in a metallic number. Coast and Quiz offering some fabulous styles to get you into the party mood.
Alternatively, opt for a lace overlay design, such as this Phase Eight dress with tulle underskirt, guaranteed to swish and sway to the point it makes all other girls green with envy.

Over at Jonathan Saunders/Edition and Star by Julien Macdonald, fashion is on red alert with a gorgeous brocade print and lace detail, respectively, sure to get you noticed and bring you bang on trend. For a classic, traditional take on this look Betty.Jackson.Black offers a gorgeous lace prom dress that combines discreet and decadent to delightful effect.

To ‘top off’ this trend, H! by Henry Holland has fashioned an irresistibly sheer lace top, with baroque prints courtesy of Star by Julien Macdonald. Always a style staple for any autumn season, lace detail at Red Herring takes the classic blazer and turns it modern.

When it comes to accessories, it’s easy to luxe up your look with a stylish clutch, a sexy pair of stilettoes or a sparkling piece of jewellery. No. 1 by Jenny Packham is definitely a one-stop-shop for anyone on the hunt for the latter, as is Erikson Beamon, while Debut occasionwear is a brand guaranteed to provide you with rich colours and regal handbag and purse designs (we love the Debut deep red clutch) and, for a pair of show-stopping heels, J by Jasper Conran is perfect for red carpet-style glamour.
Remember that this trend is all about looking lovely in lace, with a pair of Phase Eight evening shoes and a Dune clutch bag both catching our eye and, subsequently, currently heading straight for our wardrobes.
The phrase ‘all that glitters is gold’ is worth keeping in mind here, with gorgeous golden clutches available at Butterfly by Matthew Williamson and Carvela – not to mention some delectable ballet pumps from Red Herring, perfect for working the Rich & Regal trend into your everyday style.
Be glamorous and graceful, in Rich & Regal glamour, only at Debenhams for AW12.
