Many designers have taken to dipping their beautiful creations in liquid metal for Spring/Summer 2012/13, creating a wonderful mix of structured and floaty metallic masterpieces.
The great thing about metallic is that it’s a versatile trend that can be glammed up or dressed down. For a more casual look, this can be achieved by simply teaming a pair of jeans, a plain white t-shirt and blazer with a metallic clutch or metallic shoes. For a more glam look, a metallic dress teamed with a beautiful pair of nude heals achieves an effortless edgy look.
These are my key tips to wearing metallic without getting lost in a sea of metal:
- Keep accessories to a minimum. Since metallic packs a significant punch all on its own, there’s no need to go overboard with accessories.
- Pair your metallic with neutrals
- Wear one metallic piece at a time
My current obsession is rose gold (Michael Kors Baguette-Bezel Rose Gold Watch – you shall be mine!!!!) so I’m in heaven amongst the metallic trend that’s currently hitting the runways. These are my Top Ten Metallic Picks…
I’d love to hear your key picks too, so leave a comment and let us know where you’ve found your favourite pieces.
