As a true girly-girl, I've always been a sucker for shine. When I see a pair of gold skinnies or a stunning silver statement necklace, I lapse into a mini fashion coma and the world disappears for a minute. When I come to, my credit card's in the hands of the store clerk and I've bought myself something fantastic. I don't know how it happens..it's not my fault really - I blame it all on the sparkle.
From gold gowns to modern silver pencil skirts, designers showed loads of heavy metals on the spring runways. And though we're used to busting out our metallics only after the sun sets, it's now totally acceptable to wear them all day long. Whether you're bold enough to wear a full metal jacket or just want to go for the gold with your accessories, shiny silver and gold pieces add the perfect dose of rockstar chic to any outfit. For work, try adding a cool gold shirt collar or statement necklace to your basic white button-down. For weekends, throw a shimmery metallic tote or sandals to the mix to instantly glam up even the most casual look. And since metallics are considered a neutral, they will work with literally everything you own. Brilliant!
