As you know, fashion trends go round and round. What’s out is in, what’s in is out and it all comes back around eventually.
This season the cycle continues with a resurgence of total glitz. The Metallic Trend is back.. again.
Maybe it’s in direct response to us all wearing leggings and sweats for the last few months or maybe it’s just metallics time to shine but either way a shiny pop of copper, silver or gold might be just what you need to feel oh so Glam again.
Wearing metallic pieces can seem a little scary if you haven’t worn them before. But it’s actually simple to pull it off if you know how to style and contrast your metallic clothing pieces with non-metallics.
The most important thing to remember with the metallic trend is that less is more. You’ll want to start with one statement metallic piece, and then add touches of other metals in your accessories. And by accessories I mean bags, belts and shoes- when rocking metallics go easy on the jewelry.
The key is finding ways to dress down glitzier items with more down to earth pieces. You can take a sequin skirt from holiday-party-uniform to model-off-duty cool instantly by pairing it with a band tee, leather jacket and combat boots, jeans a t-shirt can be elevated by adding a metallic boot and handbag, and a metallic moto jacket could be just what you need to liven up that everyday office trousers and blouse look.
This look would have had a totally different vibe if I wore a denim jacket and leather belt. By adding the metallic pieces this look transforms into something totally glam.
No matter what your personal style- from edgy to uber feminine or effortlessly boho- try reworking some of your go-to pieces by pairing them with metallics.
