This summer was a blast from the past, throwing us back to the 80s with metallic trends all over the runway. Shiny statement accessories were huge this summer, in the form of sandals and spaghetti strap tops that are here to stay this upcoming season.
We aren’t shocked that metallics are back. They can transform any outfit from simple to dynamic, leaving you “shining bright like a diamond,” as Rihanna might say. LePrix is here to help style metallics into your outfits, both day and night.
Some people have no problem styling this lustrous trend for a night out, but don’t think to incorporate it in their outfit when the sun comes up. While you may not want to wear your metallic high heels and short dress to work or a coffee shop, it doesn’t mean you can’t wear the trend at all during the day. Metallics can be versatile depending on the color and shine!
The key is to make the bold trend more wearable. Try paring metallic items with more solid and simple pieces. This will balance out the outfit while adding contrast. The outfit on the left has our Reed Krakoff Metallic Rose Gold Gilet Vest and Metallic Gold Stuart Weitzman Point-toe Pumps paired with Isabel Marant Crochet top, Helmut Lang pants, and Fendi Leather Vintage handbag.
For those who are not into wearing bold metallic pieces or want to wear metallic in the workplace can still experiment with the trend by playing with accents, as seen on the right with our Dolce & Gabbana Metallic Gold Ruffled top, Gucci Metallic Shoulder Bag, and Chanel Gold Metallic Flats. The outfit is paired with our Michael Kors Suede Skirt and Gucci Sunglasses.
You can play with metallics a lot more as soon as sun sets by adding brighter pieces and to add texture and flare to your outfit. Our Chanel Gold Quilted Flap, Rupert Sanderson Silver Sandal, and Christian Wijnants Silver Paneled Skirt on the left are all metallic pieces and paired with our Blumarine Textured Sweater and Marni Black Metallic Gold Statement Necklace. This outfit is perfect for a night out on the town or even a date night.
If you’re feeling very bold, then the next outfit might be the one for you! You will be shinning bright in our Chanel Metallic Cocktail Dress and Christian Louboutin Metallic Peep Toe Pumps paired with Prada Pietre Evening Handbag. This daring look is perfect for a girls night out or for a New Year’s Eve celebration.
Styling metallics shouldn’t be reserved only for the evening, you can rock this trend all day and all night. Not to mention, the upcoming holidays are the perfect occasion to try out this trend.
