Shiny, loud metallics will keep you noticeable this fall.
Step into the new season with this cool trend and make sure you sparkle all night long; metallics are here to give a twist to your wardrobe and wave goodbye to summer clothes. Sunny days are almost gone.
The 70’s made a huge comeback this year, no wonder metallics followed making a bigger appearance in the cold season. Whether you choose gold, silver, copper or bronze, it’s all about being shiny.
Designers such as Stella McCartney, Balmain, Moschino and Calvin Klein showed miraculous metallic dresses down the runway that would make a perfect outfit for parties, weddings and nights at the club. If you wear a metallic dress make sure to keep accessories simple and stick to neutral colors for shoes and purse, don’t over do it.
Another option for trying on this trend is the metallic pants, which just so happens to be one of the fall must-haves. Look for skinny pants or leggings in this shiny texture, wear them with chiffon blouses or knit sweaters in basic colors such as white, black or gray. If you’re a bit daring why not try pairing them with a bright red top. Red will be the primordial color this next season.Get inspired with the looks of Balmain, Alice+Olivia, Marc Jacobs, Miller and Gareth Pugh.
Tops, skirts, jackets, blazers… metallics come in all sorts of presentations; do not hesitate on this trend; just think wisely when it comes to accessorizing and pairing it up with other pieces; you can either go for an edgy rockstar look like the ones presented by Balmain, Ackerman and Etro; or keep it classic and chic like Lela Rose, Naeem Khan, Gaultier and Diane Von Furstenberg did, just to name a few.
