Every season metallics take their sweet spot in the hottest trends lineup; this is a fact and will always be like that. However, this year has brought an interesting twist to the execution and approach in wearing this not-so-new trend.

Liquid metallic is the way to go; think dresses, skirts and blouses made of drapey, shiny fabrics. Glistening silk or more high-tech innovative materials with coating or straight forward with metal will be the fabrics to pull off your melted metal look. Pick shoes or handbags with a high-gloss finish that visually create an illusion of flowing fluid.

And don’t save all that glam for a special occasion, in moderation liquid metallics are very 9-to-5 friendly. Glimmer up your simple ensemble with a pair of metallic sandals or a sleek clutch, or go full-on day glamour with a shiny blouse or skirt. Style them with matte finish pieces or different textures (cotton, cashmere, wool); classic prints will also do the trick and tone down the flashiness of the metallic.
