Add Some Edge

‘Tis the season for toasting. A cocktail hour or party is a perfect time (and place) to add a little shimmer to your look. Take a cue from the cool crowd (aka our favorite influencers) and reach for a moto jacket to layer over a simple metallic slip dress. Then, accessorize with a texture-rich (and on-trend) sequined clutch. In this case, shine is a good thing.

Double Up on Trends

By now most of us have taken note that bell sleeves are trending and might just be here to stay. So try out two trends at once with a high-shine metallic top with bell sleeves. Keep the rest of your ensemble streamlined and simple by pairing your trendy top with staples like jeans and flats or tailored trousers.

Pair Bright Colors with Shine

What do you get when you pair a bright color with shine? One seriously festive (but chic) outfit. Grab a metallic piece like a midi skirt and pair it with a cozy knit sweater for an easy, comfortable look to celebrate all night long. As a rule of thumb, metallic hues like gold, rose gold and bronze pair best with warm colors and earth tones. Silver, grey and gunmetal metallics  look spot on with cooler tones like deep navy blue.  

Whether you’re entertaining at home or heading to the biggest holiday bash of the season, metallics are your one-stop-shop for adding that extra oomph to any look.
