Since late summer, metallic influences have been a key trend observed at fashion week as demonstrated by models sashaying down the runways and sartorial globetrotters sporting the latest street fashion. Incorporating countless shades of gold, silver, and gunmetal, tops, bottoms, outerwear, and accessories remain the same, yet totally different. From copper toned sweaters to pewter skirts, metallic hues add a unique dose of fashion to even the most simple outfits. Subtle enough for work with a basic pairing of black, gray, beige or white, the sheen can be emphasized for some evening glamour.
Metallic skirts, particularly pleated ones, offer structure and sophistication this season. Most commonly spotted with neutral tops, metallic skirts elongate outfits while remaining a standout feature in their own right. Keeping the rest of your look minimal, a simple silhouette in a neutral color palette completes the look. Another option is the metallic sweater. Sparkly sweaters embrace the chic, relaxed aesthetic of the material, carrying both the style and fabric through the entire outfit. The reflective nature adds a little zest to keep the look modern and tailored. The shimmery style provides an eye-catching yet delicate touch that’s perfect for sunny days, adding some holiday cheer to every day wear.
Metallics create an instant focal point and easily present a great alternative designs. Pleated, long, short, flowing, or fitted, choose amongst a myriad of creations for different variations on this trend.
