With party season in full swing, we gave Hear’Say star Suzanne Shaw a modern-day Cinderella makeover to bring you the best looks of the season with a little help from Bullring and Grand Central Birmingham.
The Statement Sequins
What’s a Christmas party without sequins? The trend of the season is back for its annual appearance and we’re loving it! Whether you’re wearing a maxi or midi, skater or bodycon, there are endless ways to wear this statement look.

The Leather Skirt
If dresses aren’t your thing, a leather skirt is a great alternative as it can be paired with tees, jumpers and bodysuits for a more laid-back approach to partywear. Comfortable, versatile and easily paired with boots rather than heels, a leather skirt can also be worn in the daytime!
