Of course if you are in the Southern hemisphere, where Christmas comes in the middle of summer, it can be a little more challenging to add sparkle to your holiday wardrobe. Metallics are hot right now in the North, so how do those of us here in the warmer parts of the world include this hot trend now?
I’ve become a fashionista obsessed with how to have current trends without dressing out of season, which sometimes can be a little challenging. However the up side means I get to roam the internet looking for fantastic finds that can be delivered to my door. So I have spent the morning looking over one of my new current online shopping favourites (Matches Fashion) for metallics I would love to add to my wardrobe right now…in the heat of the day, not the heat of the moment.
How fantastic is this tank from Rag & Bone?! It’s absolutely perfect for adding a bit of metallic sparkle to Christmas in the summer celebrations.
Okay, these adorable Raoul shorts aren’t hard-core metallic but with the slight shimmer of the pale pink and coppery colour, I think they are a perfect match for the sequin tank and a great way to stay cool but look hot!
I’m totally loving the copper colour of this snake-skin print bikini with its rectangular hardware. A nice way to make sure you have a little bling of metallic even in the water.
Not your standard heavy metal shoes! These Ancient Greek Sandals are perfect for summer.
Don’t be afraid to mix your metals. It will keep your look fresh and far from too gold-digger!
Just in case your summer evening cools off or is spent seaside, this fantastic jacket from Isabel Marant is sure to turn up the style temp.
There are lots of ways to add the metallic trend to our southern hemisphere Christmas Sparkle. What I like about these, 1) they are all summer appropriate and 2) they are available at one online shop that will deliver to me on the other side of the world.
