How times have changed! Once upon a time metallics were only worn to Christmas parties or Studio 54! Now it’s perfectly acceptable to wear them not only all year round but day and night.
This trend has been with us for a few seasons and shows no sign of disappearing. I must admit I have taken to it like a magpie and so far, have acquired trainers, a skirt, a sweater, t shirts, a belt, and a clutch all in shimmering shades of gold and silver (not sure about bronze on me). The sparkle is still catching my eye and with the Christmas drop now appearing in store there is even more to tempt me.
The metallic top is a fantastic day to night option., instantly lifting a pair jeans or add heels and a red lip and you are party ready. The shine instantly lifts the face and so it’s my go to on days when I am feeling a little blah! Although a simple option is to pair with back, I love gold with winter white or navy and Silver with bright pink or Emerald green. Don’t be afraid of mixing your metallics.
