Metallic Fashion – Another trend to look out for this sumer is metallics! Yes, we are talking about golds, silvers, coppers, pewters, brights, and even pastel metallics. This trend is sure to escalate even further with it recently appearing on the red carpet at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. Celebrities that wore this trend that night include Nicole Richie and Karolina Kurkova.
Metallic fashion is known to be worn for nighttime or special events, but you can easily wear this trend for daytime activities! The simplest way to incorporate metallic into your outfit is through accessories. Try adding belts, handbags, jewelry. Another fun way to dress down in metallics, is using it in sporty pieces. Here are some examples:
I love those metallic silver jogging shorts. I would pair them up with a cool tee in a solid color, some neutral sandals, black fitted blazer, and minimal jewelry. Switch into some black heels for a quick day-to-night transition.
Since metallic is such a statement in itself, make sure you do not wear anything else that is “loud”. You can still mix-and-match with this trend! Of course, it is much easier to do when you are using neutral metallics. Here are some examples of metallic paired with denim. This supercool trend was spotted at this year’s Coachella Music Festival.
Here is an example of how you can mix-and-match metallics. Note that the pastel metallic ensemble is balanced off with some silver pumps. The see-through bag helps bring out the soft orange in the dress.
Selena Gomez wore this trend earlier in the year. Her outfit is well-balanced with the pop of color from her shoes not taking away from the shiny skirt and top.
