how to wear metallics

Knowing how to wear metallics during the day will help you make the most of one of this season’s hottest trends.  Not just limited to jewellery and accessories, metallics are now making their way into our wardrobes via clothing.  While you might be tempted to leave all your glitzy metallic pieces for evening-wear only, know that adding a little bit of metallic glamour to your everyday look is a fun way to liven up your daily outfits.

If you’re unsure start by keeping it Matte – Metallics can be showy, so make it daytime appropriate in a matte finish, these are a safer option, especially when it comes to clothing.  Things like metallic leather skirts or metallic trousers are much less in-your-face when they’re in a matte finish.

If you’re not quite ready to tackle metallic clothing, start with a pair of shoes or maybe accessories are the best bet to make this look work.  You could try something a little more bold than usual.

Knowing what to wear with your metallics can be tricky as they don’t always suit all colours.  Play it safe by pairing your metallic pieces with a neutral colour palette.  Generally gold and copper metallics look great with creams, pinks and greys while silver metallics are better suited to blacks, greys and whites.  Mixing a single metallic piece with neutral separates will still create an impact without being over the top.  Teamed with hard-edged black gold has never been so indulgent!
