Matalan AW12 Christmas in July event

Before Olympic fever completely consumes me, I promised you a peek at the Matalan Christmas in July event I attended a few days back. From stunning sequins to that beautiful blue brocade suit I’ve been coveting for months, Matalan surprised me again with some red hot picks for the party season. Take a peek…

Expect stylish, statement evening wear at cheapo prices
The high low skirt continues its reign
Oversize is another big trend for AW12/13
Faux fur is back again – in 3D!
Loved this dreamy cloud print
A touch of the 20s about this dress
Fabulous shorts for the party season
The plus size range is just as glam
The two-piece I’m still determined to buy
Had to snap this “Caggie shirt” for my Made in Chelsea readers
Gorgeous flats with tapestry detail
Electric blue is still big news
A winter version of the wedge trainer
Something a little more glam
Heavily embellished, perfect for parties
Matalan does a brilliant clutch
Kids clothes were smart and practical
How cute is the snow suit?
Love this for teen girls
Christmas bling creeps into the homeware
Loads of Christmas kitsch on offer
Awwwww
It is Christmas in July alright
Deck the tree out at Matalan
Traditional and sweet – merry Christmas!
