The amazing thing about metallic, is it can be worn with pretty much everything. No matter the hue, colour or shade, it will forever be considered a neutral. This means it will go with everything in your current wardrobe. From jackets, skirts to accessories and shoes, it can be styled in an array of different ways. Depending on what you pair it with, it can effortlessly go from day to night, work to play. From the office to drink with friends, metallics can easily be dressed up or down. Just remember, to help offset the high-shine finish, pair it with muted or neutral colours.
Of course, when we hear the word metallic, we instantly think of clothing. Pick one metallic item and build an outfit around it. To compliment the high-shine finish, look for pieces that are understated and simple. If you’re styling a metallic skirt, look for a pastel top in a lightweight material. If you’re rocking a metallic gold dress, keep your accessories and shoes simple and nude. Making a statement with a metallic jacket, try a monochromatic outfit underneath.
Looking to make less of a statement, try a metallic shoe. You can never go wrong with a metallic pump or heel. It’s an easy way to introduce the trend into your outfit, without looking like a disco ball. Play the metallic as a neutral and style it with every outfit in your wardrobe. It’s a fun way to add visual interest to your look without being too in your face.
Of course, metallic jewelry will always be in style. It’s the perfect alternative when you want to have fun with metals yet keeping your look polished and sophisticated. This can be a gold statement necklace, silver metallic hoops, or even a variety of stacked metallic bangles. It adds a touch of playfulness to any outfit, while still looking fresh and current.
Metallic handbags have been a hot item for the past few years. A gold metallic clutch is a sure way to elevate any evening outfit, while a sleek silver purse can instantly add edge to an otherwise simple and basic look. It’s an extremely versatile option that matches any colour in your wardrobe and is ideal for both day and night. Don’t be afraid to play with coloured metallics, as it looks amazing with both neutral and coloured outfits.
Finally, if metallic clothing or accessories aren’t your thing, you can still play with this trend in your makeup. Wearing gold, silver or even shimmery colours in your makeup routine is a sure way to add a hint of glitz and glam to your look. Adding a pop of silver on your eyes, a touch of gold to the high places of your face, or even a hint of shimmer on your lips is a sure way to bring out the natural glow in your complexion. It’s a fun way to play with metallics without being too over the top.
