Fashion Trend For Spring Summer 2014: METALLIC


You don't have to wait for that evening party to pull out your metallics! This season, try metallics for the day too.  One trend that I am falling for is wearing metallic clothing. Metallics instantly add some shine and girliness to your look. It adds a little edge to your look.  
Metallic used as accessories, like shoes and bags, has been a trend that has been going on for years and will continue for this Spring/Summer 2014.   For this season designers sent models down the runway looking like 70s disco dolls slash robots, draped in metallic fabrics from liquid textures to stiff structured thick ones.  Here are my tips for wearing the trend:

Don’t be afraid to wear it in the day. Pair metallic with denim.

Metallic skirts look ridiculously fabulous paired with basic topsstriped tees and a simple blazer.  For a night out, a metallic skirt is a great way to dress up a look. It's an elegant look is great for a night out where a formal cocktail dress isn't necessary but a slightly smarter look is needed. A metallic skirt can look great with something as simple as a basic turtleneck sweater, tights and boots.

Metallic jackets are a real statement piece. Worn night or day they can completely transform even an all black outfit into something that stands out from the crowd. It's better to keep the rest of your look subdued.  The metallic trend is given a new life with amazing shades, that's why you can combine it with ripped jeans, plain white tees, pleated trousers, plain dresses and other stylish pieces and accessories.

Metallic shorts and trousers, now these are perfect for a night out, for a fun casual but kinda glamorous evening when you wanna look effortlessly super hot. Metallic pants add a bit of luxury to the everyday outfit, taking your look from ordinary to extraordinary.  Make sure your metallic bottoms are not too tight.  Keep it simple. Your metallic pants should be the highlight of your outfit, no need to wear items that complete with them. 

Metallic Shirts are by far my favorites, in that liquid fabric with a half tuck, they’d even be office appropriate. A metallic shirt adds a bit of rock and roll bling to plain jeans.  keep the bottom plain and in solid colours. 

Metallic dresses Every woman should have at least one metallic dress. They are trendy and dressy which can be worn for a night out on the town, weddings, office parties and special occasions. Team with minimal accessories and the right shoe, you will sure to get heads turning. 

If you don’t want to go all out, try adding metallic shoes, bags or nail varnish to liven up a simple outfit.  Metallic accessories to elevate the effect of neutrals. Pair shiny gold or silver with black, whites, grey or beige and see the outfit come to life.

There's a fine line between tasteful and tacky. So when wearing a metallic, which makes such a bold impact on its own, leave the jewelry at home. Let nature do its work. When wearing shine, it's best not to compete.
