4 Fresh Ways To Wear Metallics

Start prepping for the party season by introducing metallics into your everyday wardrobe in unexpected ways.

Give your workwear a twist by choosing a two piece with a metallic thread, but keep the silhouette pared back and unfussy to balance the effect. I like this silver/grey option from Uterque. The classic shape and minimal detailing make it feel completely office-appropriate even with the metallic detailing.

A turtleneck is the most on-trend neckline of this season. Give your take on the trend a unique twist by choosing a sequinned piece instead of a traditional knit. This piece from & Other Stories is unapologetically sparkly. Pair it with tailored trousers to dial down the effect.


Something as utilitarian as a puffa jacket is completely reimagined in a shiny'silver. Create a further contrast by pairing it with a pretty pleated skirt and heels instead rather than traditional urban accessories.

I love the idea of something traditional being turned on its head and reinvented?for the modern woman. These gold trainers accomplish exactly that. Perfect with everyday denim or with a midi skirt for a more relaxed look, they deliver both form and function.
