We can thank Alber Elbaz and the Lanvin runway for bringing back the shimmery metallics of Studio 54 to this year’s spring trends. But don’t limit yourself to wearing your metallics in the evening – this is the spring for daytime metallic and we’re here to show how to wear spring’s hottest trend in full confidence.
Daytime Metallic Shoes
Whether you’re rocking pointed flats or sky-high stilettos, as long as they’re in a metallic hue you’re good to go. Keep the rest of your outfit simple and really make your shoes pop with a matching skinny belt or metallic clutch.
Golden as the Sun
If you’re not sure how to rock the pastel metallics that are everywhere this spring, go for gold. Gold metallics are classy and even on a grey sweater, can make any outfit a little bit glamorous. Gold lamé shorts can be paired with sneakers and a white t-shirt for casual cool style. Or switch up your black pencil skirts for one in gold lamé to bring some shimmer into your office. Keep everything else minimal and clean for a very grown-up look.
Bring some shimmery metallics to your makeup for a really glamorous look. Gold is easiest for the eyes because it’s warm hue goes well with most skin tones but if you’re feeling adventurous, try metallic pastels on your eyelids for a bold look. For nails, anything that glitters is key but painting a gold nail will allow you to match your accessories to your nails and keep your outfit simple.
Feeling really daring? Colored metallics are everywhere from Philip Lim to Lanvin, Burberry to Haider Ackerman. Pair metallic blue pants with a white embellished tee for a rock-inspired look or look pretty with a metallic pink jacquard skirt perfect for a spring luncheon. Whichever color you choose, remember to keep your look balanced and don’t over do the metallic – you’re going for modern spring, not Studio 54. Keep your hair neat and your accessories simple and you’ll wish there were more days of spring to wear metallic.
