Everyone has an extra special pair of heels in their wardrobe, reserved for only the most prestigious events in one’s social diary, which during the 2021 Covid lockdown resulted in little to none for over a year. It may be the reason why 2022 is seeing a new trend, or what I like to call “The New Trend in What I Like to Call” ‘Daytime Diamanté Dressing’.
Keep you deliciously warm in the icy days of winter, in great style!

Not waiting on your diary to be filled with an event to take your Manolo Hangisi’s for a spin, but instead wearing them at 9.30am to a breakfast meeting teamed with classic relaxed 501’s and a crisp white tee. The result? The result? A lasting impression on your breakfast date, a head turner, and a happier you that you finally got some cost-per wear out of those heels.
‘Daytime Diamanté Dressing’ isn’t solely dressing from the feet up. Brands have bedazzled a range of pieces this season from Prada’s shimmering mules and Benedetta Bruzziches cult-favourite sparkle bag’s, which took Instagram by storm earlier this year, to the less ordinary items such as encrusted swimwear and scrunchies. Read more below for must-have diamanté items to work into your everyday outfits.
The finishing touch
Oversized earrings, day-to-night handbags and mules, as well as sunglasses, are all good options. These are the investment pieces that will last you and your outfit selfies for many seasons.
Style tip: Wear classic wardrobe staples with your high-low styled outfits for effortless day-to-night dressing.
The Diamanté Denim
Is your wardrobe filled with 15 pairs of similar plain cut-off’s and jeans? Then it’s time for a denim upgrade. Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander Wang, and Dolce & Gabbana lead the crystal-encrusted jeans revolution. Wear denim separates with an oversized shirt and chunky boot during the day, then switch to a sleek evening look with pointed shoes and a red lip.
The Rainbow Effect
Who said silver was the only place that sparkles could be found? Cult favourite’s Mach & Mach this season have unearthed classic styles in a range of colours featuring their statement diamanté bows, the sold out Bottega Veneta stretch sparkle heels are back this season in an array of summer hues and Balenciaga’s rhinestone encrusted Le Cagoule bag is a guaranteed head turner.
The Less Ordinary
Hints of sparkle can be found this season in even the unlikeliest of places – from Miu Miu’s phone cases to crystal encrusted bikini’s for summer vacations, you can even give your mundane up do an upgrade with Prada’s diamanté scrunchie. These items will instantly lift your mood and feature on your Instagram Stories.
Marylin Monroe, style queen, sang ‘Diamond’s are a girl’s best friend’ this is the season to invest in some sparkle.
