Look We Love: Metallics

Silver and gold accents aren't just holiday staples; they're making a statement EVERYWHERE on the streets and catwalks this season. Here are a few ways you can rock metallics for any occasion:

For Daytime:
Bold Accessories

Get an edgy look without going over-the-top by adding a splash of silver studs to your everyday denim.

For Day-To-Night:
Balanced Drama

Pair shiny fabrics like chain-link or sequins with softer ones such as tulle or velvet. A plunging neckline should be balanced with a longer length skirt, while a flashy skirt is best matched with a modest neckline and thicker material up top.

For Night Time:
You Fancy, Huh?

Keep your dressed-up look modern by embracing two trends at once! Our favorites of the moment are off-the-shoulder sleeves, sequined jewel tones, wide-legged pants, and micro-bags.

With last week's unveiling of "Ultra Violet" as the Pantone color of the year (which we are ecstatic about for obvious reasons), cosmic vibes are everywhere right now--which means the future is looking bright for metallics, even after the holiday season.
