My fall trend report isn’t over yet!
Like I said back in spring, metallics are a making a significant comeback alongside your favorite fashion trends. This time, it comes with a color block detail, bold patterns and even mixed materials that are sure to make a statement! Just add a few solid, sophisticated pieces and you’re ready for any occasion.
Of course, you need a little more direction than that. Here are the pieces you’ll especially want to shine in, plus how to wear them.
This time, go for the not-so-ordinary pleated skirts.
Metallics are great for helping you create a fun look with unexpected elements. But, what if you could take things a step further than the average hair piece?
Go for the patent, pleated skirts that have cool stripes, a brocade print, delicate sheen or just an unexpected color. It’s all about picking the one that fits your style. Believe me, having that stand-out piece in your closet can make getting dressed in the morning a lot easier. After all, if your skirt is already making a statement, the rest of your look can be more subdued with classic designs and easy silhouettes – i.e. instant outfit!
In case you want to try this out, here are four options for under $100:
Shine above the rest with an unexpected addition to your work wardrobe.
We already talked about modern suits and refreshed button-down tops in my last trend report.Why stop there? Now that you’re probably looking at your office wear from a new perspective, you might want to give metallics a try. They’re not just for night time, after all. Refresh that work wardrobe by mixing in a tailored silver top, sun-catching cami, or a sophisticated dress.
Your accessories will be the defining factor as to whether its a look for day or night. (Elaborate drop earrings and a fun clutch for night or a confident blazer and delicate jewelry for the office.)
When in doubt, use your shoes to brighten things up.
Work in a more casual environment? Or just want to play up these shimmering fabrics on your days off? A new pair of shoes can do the trick.
For a modern, fall-ready design, choose styles that mix metallics with more common tones and fabrics. (Think: Fyre boots or your favorite gold sneakers with the white sole.) The juxtaposition will give your new pair a fashion-forward look and, more importantly, make it more versatile for use in your current wardrobe.
