Heavy Metal: Metallic Trend
Posted by Ashling Moss
The runways for Fall 2012 were ablaze with molten-like metals in gold, bronze, silver and jewel-tones. Metallics glimmered in the form of dresses, denim, skirts, shoes and bags. Interpreting runway looks into everyday life can be tricky. Embrace this trend with wearable pieces that will make an impact all season long.
Since metallics create such a bold statement, wearing too many at once can cheapen a look. Choose one key piece (cigarette pant, pencil skirt, statement bag) and let it be the star of the show. Pair these pieces with basic neutrals. Try a cozy knit sweater/slouchy boyfriend sweater for ultimate comfort and understated style. For a dressier look, pair with a structured blazer that will not draw attention from the showcased piece. Keep accessories basic or forfeit them completely.
Metallics offer a fun way to freshen up your look for Fall and update your wardrobe for a new season. Here are a few of my favorite pieces:
J Brand ~ 9202 Low-Rise Metallic Coated Legging: $249.00
Alice + Olivia ~ Connie Metallic Flounce Coat: $798.00
Tibi ~ Lurex Jacquard Strapless Dress: $485.00
AllSaints ~ Metal Pencil Skirt: $95.00
Diane von Furstenberg ~ Tonda Metallic Clutch: $395.00
Jimmy Choo ~ Anouk Metallic Leather Pumps: $650.00
Topshop ~ Jacquard Metallic Shorts: $60.00
