Glimmer in these beautiful gem-inspired dresses
Shine like a star with stunning gem-inspired dresses, says Maureen Coleman
Leave the little black dress at the back of the wardrobe this party season and strike out in sumptuous jewel tones instead. Just like real gems, these rich, dazzling hues have the power to make you feel fabulous, darling.
Names like emerald, ruby, sapphire and amethyst conjure up images of wealth and sophistication.
For maximum impact, step out in one distinctive, lush shade. All over the high street dresses have been given the gemstone treatment, with retailers like Miss Selfridge, Oasis, Marks & Spencer and Dorothy Perkins stocking pretty party frocks in rich red, gorgeous green and sexy sapphire.
Jewel shades never date and are always a popular festive trend so an investment made now will be well worth the money.
