All-over sequins may be a bit Christmas party season, but the coming spring and summer is going to be more highly embellished and sparkly than any you've seen before - so brace yourself for bling! The best ways to wear summer sparkle involve lots of bright colours and an emphasis on gold, mimicking the splendour of the sun in the sky.

These black platforms, with their cool summery peep-toe will be perfect for the long days and nights, and the star-shaped sequin panel gives them a really cheerful, celebratory feel. They are made by Nine West and currently available for £115 at Debenhams where they are part of the new season's collection. A gently sloping platform gives them extra elegance, style and wearability points - a hit!
