Today I realised that I need more metallics in my wardrobe! Need vs. want…same thing when it comes to the metallic trend.
However I still have enough to take a look at how to wear the metallic trend and do it my way.
Yesterday we learned that the two keys to wearing this trend is to keep the accessories minimal and to pair metallics with neutrals. Lets see how I go with what is in my wardrobe.
Metallic and Pastel – My Way: Here is my version of the metallic and pastel look. You probably remember that I don’t do a lot of pastels so this blazer is about as good as pastels get in my wardrobe. However, I think it works really well with the metallic sweater/jumper (thrifted both the jacket and the sweater), skinny J Brand jeans, hammered gold neck cuff, Samantha Wills bracelet (gift with purchase you may recall), finished with a bronze coloured make-up bag that makes a nice little clutch and my inspired by India shoes for a little more sparkle. The gold necklace/cuff over the gold sweater is very chic. I like that this looks allows me to wear metallics during the day and when being casual.
Metallic and Neutral: This look relies heavily on the metallic and neutrals rule. The dolmen sleeved sequined sweater is worn over a pencil skirt that has small gold threads woven throughout. Further little hits of metallic come from the bracelets, the statement necklace and the shoes. This metallic look means business and can easily be worn to the office.
Heavy Metal: Again this look relies heavily on the two keys. The accessories are simple and where the metallic has its chance to shine, thanks to the neutral background provided by the printed dress and leather biker jacket. The wide silver cuff bracelet and the metal capped toe shoes are from my lust have list. I have had the little silver leather clutch for about 12 years and the silver circles necklace is a recent gift from my family in the US. If you don’t have a leather biker jacket you could achieve a similar but softer look from a black shrug or cardigan.
After putting together these looks, I would like to add a metallic tank top and metallic skinny or Capri pants to my spring/summer options. But for now, that’s how to wear the metallic trend done my way.
