Getting Glam For The Oscars
We all love the glitz and glamour of the Oscars and our team is very excited to see who's wearing what on the red carpet this year! All the women's fashion, gents style, and the performance drama - we hope this year there's just as much entertainment as there is every year.
The O&P are so inspired by the fashion and style of the Oscars, we wanted to share with you our top picks on how to get glam for the Oscars - whether you're celebrating on the couch with a glass of fizz, or hosting a themed party in your garden!
Our Top Style Picks To Get Oscar Glam
One of our favourite things about watching the Oscars is of course the celebrity fashion and the gorgeous outfits our favourite actresses wear. Inspired by this, we we choose our Duane dress by Sugarhill Brighton as the must have party dress for at home (or in the garden!) Oscars. Made for special occasions the metallic bronze Duana Dress features a figure-flattering faux-wrap shape, pleating at the waist, full-length sleeves and a tulip skirt - all in extra special sparkle infused fabric. So simple and easy to wear - simply pair with your favourite high heels and a clutch bag for Hollywood glam!
It's all about the sparkle at the Oscars - and we know sparkle here at The O&P! Our jewellery department is full of gorgeous treasures - like these Matthew Calvin gold earrings. These pretty little studs come displayed in a test tube which we think looks very trendy - and the gold studs sparkle beautifully when light hit them!
We love how this beautiful blue stone sparkles when it catches a bit of sunlight - the perfect companion to an LBD, or stacked for a trendy boho vibe. These beautiful faceted quartz bangles with a hook and eye clasp are handcrafted from Turkey on the outskirts of Istanbul by a small family firm who have worked in the same workshop for over 3 generations!
We heard that hair clips and grips are all the rage for Spring/Summer 2021! They are the perfect hair accessory - easy to use and look very glam if you go for sleek and sophisticated styles such as these large gold hair clips from Caroline Gardner. Simply slide to hold your side parting, or use to secure a half up half down look!
For The Gents:
Of course we couldn't leave the gents out - they all look so handsome in a tux! We picked a couple of accessories which would make the perfect presents for your leading man.
We start with this deco print bow tie from Fox & Chave. The Volute pattern is a really striking piece! In black and white, this eye-catching bowtie is hand made and self tie. It has an adjustable neck size with T-bar and is presented in a gift box that comes with instructions for tying. Trendy, yet classic, and definitely one to start a conversation at a party.
No black tie is ever complete without cufflinks and we love these peacock print cufflinks by Fox & Chave. They add a pop of colour to a monochrome suit, but also look great worn with a shirt and jeans for a more casual outing. The peacock feather represents kindness, compassion, good luck, patience & benevolence - what a lovely gift to give to your man!
Whatever you're doing, we hope you enjoy the Oscars in style - we know we will! Adding statement pieces not only to going out outfits, but also to more casual events (think sweater, jeans, glitzy jewellery) will make you feel ultra glam. And we leave you with a couple of tips on how our team at The O&P get themselves feeling glamorous!
"A pair of utterly fabulous high heels and a gown that has some serious swish!" - Tiggy, Owner
"Always a bubble bath, glass of champagne and Chanel number 5!" - Judie, Owner
"I feel like everything is better with a tan. When I am nice & bronzed I feel 10x better. I wear less make up, outfits look better, brown legs is always a win with shorts/skirts. I just feel like life is much better when you are glowing!" - Shelbie, EA to Tiggy
"Red lipstick, and deep side parted hair with vintage waves." - Lana, Digital Marketing
"Of course dressing up in a beautiful dress makes me feel glamorous, but what really adds that ‘glam’ feeling for me is some false lashes, freshly done hair and some blingy jewellery to dazzle in all lighting!" - Victoria, Social Media
