The AW12 catwalks were overrun with metallics; a testament to how playful fashion worldwide has become. Have fun ‘futurising’ your look by opting for obvious shimmery tones.
Oddly textured, metallic pieces have the appearance of being heavy, which makes the fabric fall in alluring ways. Never go overboard; choose one essential item per look.
You think metallic and your mind conjures up an image of silver. However, as the range of shoes will show, you can also rock shades of bronze, gold and pink. Wear the season’s hottest footwear styles with a metallic twist.
A metallic bag should be slouchy and spacious to really add to the urban feel of the trend. Choose a large tote or a sling a messenger bag over your shoulder and complete the look with a large, unfussy metal necklace.
