Metallics are typically reserved for an evening out but this season designers galvanized the high shine trend by rolling out everyday looks with reflective touches.
Whether in the form of liquid-gold lamé or shiny sequins, the precious-metallic fabrics of summer are sweet and ladylike. These iridescent metals lend instant glamour to almost any look. Here are this season's prettiest sparklers that we can't wait to slip into:
River Island Metallic Skirt (Rs. 2094; Jabong.com):
The pencil skirt with its approachable silhouette will lend itself easily to a variety of occasions and outfits. Flaunt the sheen by teaming it with a casual top in a similar hue to add interest to a monochromatic look. For a polished meets flirty vibe pair it with a flowy blouse and ankle strap heels.
Aldo Metallic Clutch (Rs. 2300 approx.):
This clutch from Aldo is minimal and ladylike. It will turn any outfit into a streamlined look with a modern edge.
Mango Metallic Leggings (Rs. 3490):
These gleaming pair of bottoms can look spot-on for a work day, girls' night out or and a cocktail party depending on how you style them. Tone them down with an over sized black turtle-neck, black pumps and sleek satchel for a casual Friday. Give them a cool street wear edge by pairing a loose tee and a cropped biker jacket to transform them for evening.
Forever21 Metallic Top (Rs. 1089):
This metallic top in a soft neutral hue makes it easy to shine up any outfit (literally and figuratively, of course). It will look equally adorable with jeans and a skirt alike
Metallic Sweatshirt (Rs 1895; Koovs.com):
A little pop of metallic does the trick. Layer this over a lustrous miniskirt or a pair of white denims and finish with a pair of sneakers for a look that’s high on cool and comfort.
Zara Metallic Wedges (Rs. 2890):
The easiest way to garner a little extra attention this season may just be with a flash of metallic on your footwear. The walkable platform and the open toe says casual but the silver finish on them tell a slightly more glamorous story.
