    For a splash of Christmas sparkle and glamour I always buy a ‘Christmas’ jumper (no, not a knitted charity shop one) that’s got a sprinkling of glitter on it so I look like I’m getting in the spirit of the season, sparkle about it one with a little sparkle. I also add a pair of gorgeous leather gloves and a cosy bobbled hat for my winter wonderland look!

  9. RHIAN THORN says

    I add a little “sparkle” to my Christmas by using a body moisturiser such as Swarovski when dressing for a night out – this really looks effective!
    I also like to wear a special, sparkly top/ jumper on Christmas day when I have my lunch and then visit my family in the afternoon.

    I add a bit of sparkle to Christmas by telling my friends I’m not a fan of glittery christmas cards as I end up finding glitter on my face 7 showers and a week later after opening them! Oh course, my lovely friends being my lovely friends now insist on the most glittery cards to give to me! …So I’m always sparkly over the festive season! :)

  20. says

    What a wonderful giveaway! I adore Reiss, particularly their party dresses.
    I find that the easiest way to add sparkle, especially on an ordinary grey day, is with glitter nail polish.

  23. caroline Johnson says

    I add sparkle to Xmas by accessorising. Add a gold sparkly wrap to a simple black dress, or a deep purple dress with black heels that I have added purple glitter bows to. Of course Xmas is THE time to get the jewellery out for REAL sparkle!! Sparkly Swarovski embellished items are fab and glitter with the light – love it!

  24. Mrs Joslin says

    I embrace the sparkle that Christmas brings from shopping for that perfect christmas outfit, to getting involved with the festive cheer and celebrating with friends and family.

    I add sparkle to my festive season every Christmas by buying giant sparklers! On Christmas eve, the whole family goes outside to show Santa where to land his sleigh! The younger ones love it, and even the grown-ups are partial to a bit of sparkler-fun!

  38. AJ says

    Just dressing what you feel comfortable and not being embarrassed about it as you make your own style and sparkle. Also appreciating what is going on around you and thinking positive plus looking at the bright side of life always helps.

  39. Jayne Fisher says

    Understated with some glittery eyeliner for the Christmas party. That reiss dress is weakening my determination to not buy another new dress for said party!! Oh and lots of white Christmas lights to add sparkle at home too….love it.

  40. Barbara Bunning says

    I always dress up for xmas dinner and like to wear sparkly shoes or clothes, I also am quite fond of table glitter for the table and use lots of sparkly candles etc as decorations

    I got some disco ball lighting up the house for the festive season in addition to all the sparkly sequin gold shorts I have picked out to wear.
    I love the festive season.

  42. says

    Big fan of Reiss and I can see they have come up trumps again withis fab collection to a zing to your Christmas step. My sparkle comes from jewellery but mainly from the faces lighting up as they open their gifts whilst sipping champagne and munching on bacon butties.

  43. Lesley says

    I add sparkle to the festive season by having a winter wonderland theme in my home. Everything in white and silver with scented candles and bubbles chilling in the fridge.

  44. Cheryl M says

    I add sparkle to my festive season by wearing my vintage 1950s beaded cardigan with jeans. Of course I’m hoping that one day I’ll be able to add the sparkle woth diamonds, but until my lottery numbers come up, that’s unlikely. . .

  45. Kirsty Norton says

    I add sparkle to the festive season by getting very friendly with glitter – shimmery tights, glittery nail polish…basically the more the merrier when it comes to shiny sparkles!

  49. kathleen hooper says

    For me, the best way to add sparkle is with a bottle of bubbly. I also like to make sure I am wearing my gorgeous diamond engagement ring, which is often kept safe in my underwear drawer for the rest of the year!

  50. Katherine L says

    I add a bit of sparkle this holiday with an excited heavy hand! I’m like a magpie to sparkle … I absolutely cannot resist it.

  53. Farhana Haque says

    Glitter and sparkly things are the best thing about this festive season. I love gold and silver outfits.

  56. Ruth Grover says

    Reiss is so feminine….happily signed up to Newsletter. Add a bit of glitter to Christmas, I have a scarf I made of black with black beads that do glitter so much. It dresses up an outfit and I add some blingy earrings as I am usually so conservative in what I wear.

  57. Kerry Robertson says

    A nice glittery polish always does it for me although have just got some new sequinned gloves and will dress up all my outfits!

  62. Kim Barrett says

    Sparkly shoes, glitter nail vanish, glitter eye shadow and of course glitter lippy.
    It’s christmas and the perfect excuse to really go over the top a shine. Don’t forget the glitzy dress and bag…

    Great giveaway. I add some sparkle with my trusty Reiss gold clutch bag, vintage jewels & my favourite red lippie.

  68. Stephanie Mitchell says

    Once we’ve extinguished the Christmas pud, tbh that’s less of a sparkle & more of an SOS flare, I like to get out of my light knit after cooking Christmas lunch & get dressed into a sparkly dress & pour myself a large flute of bubbles, in anticipation of the party games which follow.

  69. rebecca denyer says

    I have a gorgeous gold sparkly dress perfect for christmas that i will be wearing with minimal accessories but gold nails and eyeshadow x

  70. Ruth mc says

    I add sparkle to Christmas with white and silver linen tablecloth with silver napkin rings and sparkling crystal glasses.

    A sparkly jumper and hopefully the massive hints being dropped to hubby about jewellery add some more sparkle and dear son telling cracker jokes is the cherry on top of the Christmas cake.

  71. says

    I think the sparkle of Christmas starts from the very first Christmas advert on telly, gets warmer when you are putting up your Christmas decorations and sipping your first glass of mulled wine whilst munching on a mince pie, and the tingling of excitement when you are wrapping up everyone’s pressies and listening to Christmas songs.

    Otherwise, these AMAZING leggings should do the trick: http://www.reiss.com/womens/womens-new-arrivals/carrie-sparkle/black/

  72. charlotte r says

    a little bit of glitter nail varnish on my ring fingers (nothing too ghetto fabulous) , pearl accessories, and fancy footwear

  73. says

    I’ve bought a sequin skater style dress all sequins! Also some kurt Geiger studded shoes

    Can’t be missed on the Christmas night out :-)

    . However I’m abroad for Christmas this year and need some versatile Xmas clothes!

    The sun will be my only sparkle this Xmas

  74. Carol Rowley says

    nail polish, eye shadow, earrings, shoes, the more glitter the better, Christmas is the only time of year where you can never over do the glitter
