Dress Code S/S ’14 Trends: Metallic Clothes
Hello loves! We’re back this week with another look at my list of the top five trends for this spring/summer season. Coming in at number four on my list is metallic clothing. If you recall, last year we saw plenty of metallic accessories hit the runways in designer shows for the fall/winter season. Chunky gold necklaces and menswear watches became staples to nearly every outfit. Silver pointed toe pumps and matching envelope clutches were the perfect exclamation to any outfit.
This time around designers have given their fabrics the Midas touch. From gold leather pencil skirts, to the sought after pleated metallic skirts seen by everyone from Moschino to Asos, it’s clear that we’ve taken glam fashion from evening to day. This trend is perfect for the woman who loves to stand out in a crowd, but this it’s still easy enough to pull off by more conservative ladies. Look for midi skirts (with or without pleats) in foil leaf or hologram finish. Box cut silk tops with a metallic shine can accent your favorite lightweight dress pants, while an acrylic neck scarf may be more suitable for the office. Whatever you decide, you’re sure to shine!
