The Power of Metallic

metallic look

Holidays are around the corner, and so is my festive mood. Lately, I often catch myself choosing bolder contrasts and more metallics, like this skirt, and today’s look with metallic pleated top and neutrals.

Isn’t it amazing how metallic hues elevate a look? Adding a little bit of metallic glamour to your everyday look, is a fun way to liven up a basic daily outfit. I wore this top and I felt elegant and classy even though I dressed it down with a simple, off-white pair of pants and classic sneakers, finishing with grey glittery socks. That’s the power of metallic!

What’s more, thanks to fashion houses like Lanvin, Gucci and Givenchy, metallics are no longer exclusive to the holiday season and one of this season’s hottest trends.

The trick to mastering the metallic glam, is to wear it in small doses. You don’t need but a few minimal jewelries. For a daytime or more casual look, like mine here, you can pair metallic clothing and accessories with simple and understated outfits. By wearing just a touch of sparkle you will look refined instead of disco ball flashy. For a night time look you can add more metallic in your clothing and accessories. Whether your dressing up or down, it’s important to keep a classic color palette on your non-metallic garments and accessories like white, black, grey or navy blue to avoid looking overdone.

What about you? Do you wear metallics this time of the year or generally?

Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

    That top is from H&M? You always make everything from there look high fashion. Love the way you dressed your sparkle down. And especially how you complemented the sparkly top with the sparkly socks. A great way to bring the look full circle. Your style is always on point as usual girl!

    Dear Stella,
    this is my favourite Look of you at the moment! It’s a very noble kind of casual chic street wear with a touch of glam. I would wear it during the christmas days for sure. Maybe you know I love clean simple style and cold shades and this is exactly my “cup of coffee” Great capture my fried! your Martina

    I love how you incorporated metallics in this outfit without it becoming too “holiday soiree-ish”. I like metallics too but usually toned down, like in a bracelet or say a bit sown on a sweater. And keeping the color palette minimal is a great way to work metallics into any outfit! Truly inspired 😉 Xo~ Lena

      I like a lot your “holiday soiree-isa” term and I am glad I don’t look like that haha! Thanks so much for stopping by Lena, I am really glad you like it and congrats on your new blog and rebranding! Will check it out asap!

    I love that metallics have now become a part of everyday wear. I’ve seen some beautiful pleated skirts matched with oversized cozy sweaters and now this gorgeous metallic top matched with white denim and sneakers! I agree that you do have to be a little careful in how you style your metallics or you may end up looking like a disco ball and that small doses are preferable. Thanks for another stylish look and for your creative ideas! I always learn something!
