We’ve been around long enough to know that if there’s one thing consistent about fashion, it’s that a trend makes an upgraded reappearance every few decades. Case in point: the 70s throwback metallic trend has been amply sighted on the catwalks and in stores, but with an interesting, futuristic-without-trying-too-hard twist which we’re totally loving. Who doesn’t love shiny things, really? This Spring ’15, Altuzarra, Versace, DKNY, Richard Nicoll – all of them sent out a slew of reflective garments out for the world to love and glimmer in; some stunning accessories included.
What’s particularly exciting though, are the metallic offerings made with surfaces other than the staple silver and gold – iridescent seems to be well on its way to replace the staple gilded finish. There’s also shimmery champagne, matte black, cobalt blue; different textures branching out from the metallic family.
A loaded plus? For those averse to any kind of jewellery, a metallic flash goes a long way in dressing up any outfit, whether you’re going for a luxe-casual look, or all out club wear (thankfully, no one says discotheque anymore – except maybe your mom). The possibilities are endless – a streak on your eyes, a gilded phone cover, or Iggy Azalea style sneakers; below, we’ve drawn up a cool list for you. Shine on!
