This one’s for all you magpies out there! Sparkle, shine and slay in Metallics.
The futuristic trend has been shining since the 60’s, back when the world was obsessed with the space age. High shine styles were spotted everywhere, from sparkly shades and belts to shimmering sequin dresses – who needs a disco ball when you can just be one?
The race to the stars inspired the look, while pop stars and runway idols brought it back through the decades. Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne have been rocking the trend from the streets to the red carpet. Metallics are bolder and brighter than ever, being worn as accessories, statement pieces, and most recently, footwear. Here’s our favourite ways to nab the trend:
Add a Hint of High Shine
The easiest way to inject metallics into your wardrobe is to accessorize. The most obvious choice would be silver or gold jewellery, but you can go even bolder than that. Reach for a shiny burgundy belt or rose hold handbag for a subtle pop of shimmer.
Make a Shiny Statement
If you’re feeling a bit daring, reach for a pair of melted metal bottoms or show some leg in a mini-skirt. Pair it with a tee that has a subtle pop of shine like the Nike Metallic Swoosh Tee. It really pulls the look together with a chic, bold edge!
Put Some Sparkle in your Step
Metallic trainers are huge this season in every shade. This gorgeous pair of New Balance 520S has a shimmering pop of silver while retaining a subtle look. If you want to score these you’ll have to act fast though – they’re running low! For gals who like a rose gold shade, check out the New Balance 574S. They’re bright, bold and super feminine.
