Sparkly, glittery, shiny, oh my! This season I have discovered the look of metallic styles and they are slowly starting to replace the sparkles in my closet. In the past, I’ve been a big fan of sparkles, but have noticed that after a few wears, I tend to get a little bored. I want glitter and glamour, but I also want longevity. With metallics for fall, not only am I getting my glitter fix, I am adding a modern element to my wardrobe that is unexpected and matches with almost any other color I’m wearing.
The muted mirror metallics are playful and unexpected, yet add the elegance to any look with a refined twist to your wardrobe. Unlike sparkles, metallics remain clean and light wear after wear, acting as a base for a unique glam look without looking too overdone.
The metallic shades speak for themselves, whether you are wearing a silver-toned sweatshirt, $70, high waist metallic leggings, $30, metallic zip booties, $140, an a-line leather mini-skirt, $160 or adding an iridescent halo to your manicure, the variety of hues to choose from are endless.
This trend is a serious ode to the early 2000s, but also a flash forward to the future of fashion. Metallics are not only showing up on the runway, we are also seeing interest and shine in the home in accent pieces such as a super chic silver metallic pouf, $90. Metallic pieces that act as a neutral will surprisingly go with almost anything and be a stand-out in any room.
This season, combat tired burgundys and beiges, which are repeated every single fall season without fail. Shine on in gloomy weather, and rock an everyday metallic hue.
