High Fashion Meets High Shine


This season, take your nighttime—or daytime—look up a notch by infusing some shine. From the runways to the racks, shimmer, sparkle, and sheen are taking the stage right now. From drapey satins and radiant sheers to polished metallics and glistening sequins, here are some of our favorite ways to add some lustre to your sartorial style.

Amped-Up Earth Tones
Say goodbye to muted neutrals and make a statement with a lurid glow. Some of our favorite earthy hues have gotten a shiny new upgrade and we couldn’t be more excited. Expect to see an array of classic warmer tones in luxe glossy finishes lining the racks this season. Burnished orange pants? Absolutely. A lustrous marigold frock? You bet. Whether worn as an accent or donned from head to toe, these bold-colored numbers are sure to turn heads.

Elevated Metallics
Metallics are nothing new, but they’re bigger than ever right now—and popping up in every shade, shape, and finish you can imagine. Great for parties, a night out, or anytime you want to feel a little glitzy, metallics are the perfect splash of shine to raise the chic factor of any ensemble. For a transitional look that can take you from day to night, try pairing a slinky metallic top with jeans and a blazer. Or go all out with a show-stopping party dress in your favorite metal finish.

Shimmery Sheers
The ultimate statement-makers, sheer pieces have long been the secret weapons of the fashion world. But this season’s twist? Combining sheers with shimmer. Whether adorned with sequins or coated in a subdued glittery finish, this of-the-moment combination is sure to take any outfit up a notch. Need something flashy for a party? Try topping a solid dress with a sparkly overlay to create your own festive gown. Tired of your 9–5 attire? Combine a twinkly translucent top with tailored suiting for a fashion-forward take on business casual.

No matter how you decide to sport your shine this season, you’re sure to bring a welcome splash of brightness wherever you go.
