Fast becoming the must have trend, metallics are back just in time for party season. But these glitzy garments are more than just one night stands; winter 2011 is all about embracing this incandescent trend and wearing your metallics loud and proud during the daytime too. Take a look at these ways to wear metallics from plus size women’s clothing retailer, Curvissa, and shimmy in silver and gold hues for a luxe look that’s entirely wearable.
On a Date
Men are attracted to women who feel confident with how they look, so dress to impress but make sure you feel comfortable with what you’re wearing. You can achieve this by incorporating the perfect amount of glitter glamour into your date night outfit but being careful not to go overboard. Keep your metallics to your accessories and just one garment; for example, a pair of black skinny jeans teamed with a gold top, black bag and statement gold earrings will provide the perfect level of shine without dazzling your date.
Metallics at work are all about striking the balance between office appropriate attire and fashion forward thinking. For many, this bold trend is a definite no-no for work wear but it is entirely possible to embrace the razzle-dazzle without foregoing your professionalism. Instead of a shiny top, wear your metallics on your legs, either with a figure hugging silver pencil skirt or tailored smart pants. By opting for bottoms with a traditional cut teamed with a crisp white shirt and black court shoes you’ll keep the look smart, polished and chic.
On a Night Out
Forget toning this trend down, if you’re on a night out embrace metallics in all their glory with a bold sequinned dress in glamorous gold or shimmery silver. A night on the town is the perfect opportunity to experiment with your personal sense of style and try something you might not ordinarily wear. So, if you normally play it safe in jeans and ballet pumps, go all out in an embellished cocktail dress teamed with killer heels and eye catching accessories. If you’d prefer something a little more subtle, go for a black dress paired with metallic accessories such as silver shoes or a gold clutch.
