The Metallic trend is hot news for spring summer 2014. Now I’ve pointed it out, you’ll be spotting metal everywhere. Just about every clothing item and accessory can be found in metallic.
And I’m not just talking gold, silver, bronze and copper. Every colour seems to have been, metalised. Pastels meet metal is hot news. Purple metallic, pink and mint you’ll see them all in leather or pleather. It is trend everybody can indulge in and a way of bringing your outfit up to date in a single hit.
I’ve already seen fabulous rose gold biker jackets in the shops, mint metal skater skirts and minis but if that sounds a little bit OTT for you. And you’re a little afraid of looking more like you’ve covered yourself in glue and leapt into a box of Quality St wrappers than a silver siren. Why not accessorize with metallic heels or a fabulous shoulder bag.
1 Leather metalic Jacket River Island £185, 2 Greige metallic shoulder bag River Island £25, 3 Pink skirt missguided in the sale £18.00 also at prettylittlething for £6!, 4 Makeup looks from Chanel and Dior S/S14, 5 satchel bag (Made in Britian) £109 from Zatchel, 6 Rose gold shoes from Banana republic for £79
However easier still is look at it from a make-up trend point of view. Make-up and fashion always go hand in hand. Shimmering gold eyeshadows or subtle icey silver eyeliners are a fun way to experiment.
Better still ring the changes with a great metallic mani courtesy of our manicurist in residence Georgina.
