Little Spend Trend...

(Find links below)
'Little Spend Trend' is a feature I've decided to start doing to show how to incorporate the current trends into your wardrobe for less! All of the items shown will be under £25 so it's perfect if you're on a bit of a budget.

This week's trend is 1920s Glam which is of course inspired by the release of The Great Gatsby earlier this year. This look is all about more is more - more sequins, pearls, rings and glitter! Even if you can't afford to buy a new outfit you can incorporate this look with accessories alone. It's such a great look for winter and screams Christmas party outfit!

1. Cream Glitter Crop Top, New Look, £14.99 
New Look has lots of great items for the 1920s trend at the moment. This top is perfect because it has both lace and glitter, which is great for pairing with a plain skirt that you already own. I would team it with number 4. It is also available in black. 

2. Gold Glitter Clutch, Dorothy Perkins, £7
I love how Christmassy this bag is! I think it looks a lot more expensive than £7 and would easily dress up any outfit. It would look great with both the dress and skirt & top combo. 

3. Cream Lace Dress, H&M, £24.99
This dress is only just in the £25 budget, but I'm so glad I could include it! The lace pattern is so perfect for the 1920s look and I think it's one of those dresses you'd wear again and again. It's also available in blue and black.
 
4. Black Chiffon Skirt, H&M, £14.99
This would look so great with number 1 - a whole new outfit for under £30! I love the simplicity of this skirt, it would look great with loads of accessories and some sky-high heels.

5. Barry M Glitter Nail Varnish, River Island, £8
These nail varnishes are a set sold in River Island, although you can buy them individually in Boots for £2.99 each. It's easy to forget about nails when thinking about an outfit, but with the 1920s look it's about adding glamorous details wherever you can! 

6. Gold Tassel Pendant Necklace, New Look, £5.99 
I love the unique style of this necklace - it would immediately add a 'Gatsby' feel to any plain dress.
 
7. Rhinestone Cascade Earrings, Dorothy Perkins, £7 
These are also great for adding glamour, any dangly, glittery earrings are perfect for this trend. These would look amazing with a 1920s up-do for a Christmas party look!

8. Black Sequin Headband, H&M, £3.99
If you want an immediate way to add a 1920s feel to your outfit then the headband is how to do it! These are everywhere at the minute, but I liked the simplicity of this one. 

9. Black Faux Fur Cape, New Look, £14.99 
This is a bit more special because you probably wouldn't get as much wear out of it as some of the other items here, but it's so perfect for the 1920s and for Christmas! These are great for adding luxury to an outfit. 

10. 17 Stay Pout Lipstick in 'Rule Breaker', Boots, £4.49
Don't forget the finishing touches with this look! A darker lipstick is great in winter anyway, but is also especially perfect for this trend!

Will you be trying out the 1920s look this Christmas?
