Trend 2014 – How to wear metallics
We love metallics. Add a metallic detail in any form to your look and you take the look from ordinary to luxe.
As the metallic trend continues in 2014, here are some ideas on how you can wear metallics.
1. Don’t be afraid to wear it in the day. Pair metallic with denim.
Below is an example of a skirt with design details woven in metallic thread paired with a denim shirt for a stylish casual look. Team this with a black or navy bag with gold buckles and keep the footwear simple.
2. For a bolder day look, go for a completely metallic skirt in jacquard with a t-shirt top. Yes it works and the combination of different textures makes the look very interesting.
3. Match a metallic patterned trouser with a simple black top. Very chic.
4. Use metal 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.
Below are some style ideas of how celebrities have done metallics in the past:
Bold metallics worn by Elle Macpherson (note the gold accessories paired with the silver) and Nicole Richie
Subtle metallic accents on Jaime King, Jessica Alba and non other than Olivia Palermo who matched the metallic shoes with two different outfits.
Style it anyway you like, metallic is luxe.
