When it comes to style, I'm all about excess. I'm going through an OTT phase in which even my wardrobe staples have to have something a little extra about them. Maybe it's post-pandemic loungewear fatigue or the excitement of a new season, but whenever I'm scrolling online or browsing in-store, I find I'm always drawn to those eye-catching statement pieces. Just check my saved folder—it's filled to the brim with feather-trimmed trousers and those rhinestone-clad influencers who always happen to know where the after-party is.
If you're like me and also find yourself weak at the knees for a little full-throttle glamour, I implore you to head to the Karen Millen Pre Fall edit immediately. With more sequins than Cher's costume department, this edit is high-octane fashion that's good enough for Studio 54, Ibiza and beyond. Think serotonin-inducing hues, molten metallics and diamanté fringe. Wherever these pieces seek to make a statement, they are frankly unapologetic. Don't have a party trick up your sleeve? Lack a sense of rhythm? Fear not—nobody will notice if you're wearing this mirrored disc dress.

And if you're not a 24-hour party person (who is?), this edit includes a multitude of trophy pieces fit for every day: a pink leather blazer here, some jacquard knit pants there and so much more. (I have my eye on these knee-high beige boots.) It's an excuse to dress a little punchier for the office, school drop-off or whatever event your Google calendar has you booked into, and I'm all about excuses.
So pour yourself a martini, browse the Karen Millen Pre Fall edit and have yourself a sensory experience.
One thing I know for certain is that I will simply never tire of feather-trimmed trousers. They're so much more versatile than you think. I'd style these with a graphic tee and boots for casual occasions and a black crop and heels (as pictured) when I'm out out.
