Add a touch of opulence to a fall wardrobe with cropped metallic pants.
This season’s must-have garment will transform any outfit into something special.
The calf-skimming length is flattering on all leg shapes and appears to give shorter women some extra height.
The look was seen in Diane von Furstenberg’s Fall/Winter 11 collection. The designer paired thick, gold material with bright blue graphic tees and oversized print bags.
Models wore the pants over sheer tights, with gold-toed Mary-Janes, which added a smart, quirky appeal.

To steal this look from the runway pair heavy pants with fine, light knits or light cotton tops. Ensure the trousers have a brushed metallic look rather than being too polished.
In colder weather prevent chilly ankles, by throwing fine tights on underneath.
Keep gold and silver jewellery to a minimum and enhance the look with a smooth slick of red lipstick.
Accessorise the outfit with a large handbag in matching tones.© COVER MEDIA
