Shine bright like a diamond: 10 super wearable metallic pieces to have now
Shine bright like a diamond
Metallics instantly amp up the glam factor of any outfit, but can be tricky to pull off without looking like a disco ball. Try focusing on just one statement metallic piece and keep the rest of your outfit understated. Pieces that incorporate interesting metallic details are the way to go, so you can rock the trend without being too over-the-top.
Metallic striped t-shirt, $29.90 from Mango
This is a super chic piece you can definitely wear over and over again. We love the combination of mesh fabric and metallic stripes, which makes you look playfully sexy. Simply wear it over a black tank top, and go with tailored trousers on the bottom.
This dressy top is perfect for a day-to-night ensemble. Wear it with a blazer for the office, then show some skin when it’s happy hour. The softly draped neckline is a plus – pull back your hair and wear some drop earrings to emphasise your beautiful decolletage.
We don’t know about you, but we’d be way excited to flaunt our kicks if they came with a metallic finish. If you think coordinating a metallic #OOTD is too much of a hassle, just throw on these shiny trainers and you’re good to go. They add wow to even a simple shirt-and-jeans combo, and are comfortable to boot.
Forget the little black dress when you can have a purple glitter knit dress, which is a safe but far-from-boring number. We love that it’s classy without being too fancy. The peplum hem is a sweet touch, and with the loose fit, you don’t have to be conscious of your “food baby” at a party.
Metallic jersey skinny scarf, $21.12 from River Island via Asos
Here’s an oft-neglected accessory that deserves more love. It’s an ultra fuss-free and foolproof way of introducing some sparkle to your getup, no? Go with a black low cut top to highlight the metallic scarf and up the sexy quotient. You can also tie it like a necktie, a la Blair Waldorf.
We know, this head-turner is quite the daring option, but we’re really digging the rugged-meets-luxe feel. When you’ve got such a statement piece, you don’t need to put much effort into what you wear it with, because you’ll still look like you tried. We think this jacket goes best with a midi dress and some chic mules.
Metallic heeled sandals, $31.67 from Boohoo via Asos
If all else fails, a pair of metallic heeled sandals wouldn’t hurt (quite literally, because block heels are more comfortable than stilettos). Opt for these sandals to easily jazz up a plain dress. They’re perfect for any occasion – you won’t regret making them your go-to sandals.
