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

The classic black pump. Perfect for day or night, work or play. A shoe that will never, ever go out-of-style and with the right cobbler, will last forever. They might all look very similar, but not all pumps are created equal.
The iconic black pump is truly an “investment piece”. When considering the purchase of the perfect pump, there are several points (pun intended) to consider, including craftsmanship, quality of leather, toe shape, heel height and arch support. This is not an item that can be purchased online, one must kiss many frogs before finding a prince.
From a power suit or LBD, to a favorite pair of designer jeans, the classic black pump instantly creates a chic, put-together look. The reliable shoe is a vital component in every women’s closet. Here are a few of my favorites:
1. Jimmy Choo ~ Anouk Patent Leather Point Toe Pumps: $575.00
2. Christian Louboutin ~ Decollete Calfskin Pointed-Toe Pump: $625.00
3. Manolo Blahnik ~ Manolo Blahnik BB: $595.00
4. Prada ~ Leather Point-Toe Pump: $620.00
5. Zara ~ Leather High Heeled Court Shoe: $89.90
