Ever heard the saying “Everything old is new again”? That certainly seems to be true with fashion and Fall 2016 was no exception. With backpacks, high-waisted mom jeans, pinafores, and the ubiquitous choker back in style, is it any surprise metallics are also making a comeback? Yup, metallic shine is back and in a big way! From Alexander McQueen to Dolce & Gabbana, Zara to ASOS, metallic accents and accessories are everywhere, and I can’t say I’m mad about it. I love metallics!
There’s something so nostalgic about glitter and frost, sparkle and shine, you know? It takes me back to playing dress up as a little girl when glitter was a must, and then onwards into my teen years when nail polish was my primary weapon to express my style. My all-time favourite metallic nail polish back then was Revlon Nail Enamel in Wild, a gorgeous green with gold undertones. Fact: It’s the only bottle of nail polish I’ve ever used up entirely!
Today, I’m paying homage to dressing up the grown up way (no pretending!) by showing you a few sleek, chic and sophisticated ways of adding metallic accents to your everyday wardrobe.
So what do you think? Are you loving everyday metallics as much as I am, and what’s your favourite way of adding some sleek and chic details to your wardrobe? Leave me a comment and tell me! Oh, and if you’re in the mood to shop, this week I’ve rounded up my favourite metallic clothes and accessories under $300 on The Shop at So Fresh & So Chic!
