My Little Obsession With Metallics

about 3 years ago

I love a chic metallic piece. Lots of people save a metallic fabric for a night out but when the suns out there's nothing better than wearing an item that makes you feel like you're literally reflecting light.
Here are some of my current fave casual pieces from shimmering gold to sun-loving copper.

Match Made In Heaven


I'm really into this Bailey 44 sweater with attached choker. It's definitely got a casual vibe to it so I would pair it with blue jeans with a hint of metallic and why not throw in these beaut coppery slides?

If you're feeling the metallic jeans vibe as much as me, take a look at these bad boys. I think they shine best when dressed down with simple summer flats.

Double Up


I have zero problem doubling up on my metals. I would pick any of the above jeans and style them with a cute, casual, yet shimmering top.

Lovin' The Bikers


I'm confident I won't have to sell anyone on these incredible biker-style jackets. Team them with denim, skirts, dresses...whatever, they are AMAZE.

This Neiman Marcus biker is just SO wow. This caught my eye the minute they bought it out and I'm thinking it would be amazing thrown over a white midi dress and casual flat sandals.

This combo = #GOALZ


Firstly, this top is so pretty! I love the ruffle detailing and 90's spaghetti straps, plus it's black (my fave) with a gorgeous metallic shimmer. I instantly put it together with this Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag. The way she's blended all palettes of the metallic spectrum means you can style it so effortlessly. Finished with these high shine flat mules, this outfit just needs a simple black or white jean to complete it.

Take A Dressy Dress & Make It Casual


I really love this long-sleeve, slinky For Love & Lemons dress. However, I would strip the heels and clutch and team it with white trainers or even flip flop-style sandals and a bright crossbody bag and wear it for a sunny lunch date with the girls.

Mini - Midi - Maxi


Whatever kind of skirt I'm feeling, I want it to be metallic this summer. I love these 3 because they all do a different job.
Mini - I'd wear this with a graphic tee and trainers.
Midi - I'd wear this with a denim shirt and flat mules.
Maxi - I'd wear this over my bikini with flip flops.

Metallic is such fun to style. It pairs so easily with light-wash denim and I just love the pieces that you can throw on with trainers or flip-flops. Maybe next I'll try a full head-to-toe vibe. I'll let you know how it goes.
