With a liquid-like sheen and notice-me-now sparkle, metallic pieces are inherently glamorous and party-ready. But the trend, embraced by designers like Alexander Wang and Reed Krakoff for S/S 13, still reads casual when worn with the right pieces, as Sienna Miller recently demonstrated.While attending a press night in London for fiancé Tom Sturridge's play No Quarter, the actress wore an intriguing mix of luxe elements in Whistles' Noel Boucle Top ($117) and Ruby + Ed's Hooded Coat ($436) in Mink. Tomboy staples, like Finders Keepers' slouchy denim pants and Tabitha Simmons' buckle boots, offered the perfect foil to the sparkly metallic shirt.

Esteban Cortazar Lame and Stretch-Crepe T-Shirt ($270)
Metallic gets a feminine makeover in Esteban Cortazar's pretty pastel top, but its sporty baseball-style neckline keeps it from looking too precious.
Michael Kors Draped Fine-Knit Lame Top ($895)
Go for the gold in Michael Kors' glittery, drapey top--a chic going-out option paired with sleek, tailored pants and pointy-toe shoes.
Club Monaco Ainslie Sweatshirt ($80) in Black/Pewter
Even a boxy sweatshirt joins the metallic bandwagon with a lustrous pewter finish. Team this futuristic top with skinnies and flats for an off-duty cool look.
Style It With/Pants
Contrast the metallic top's shine with a pair of matte trousers, such as Piamita's Brigitte Pants ($285, 212.941.9656) in Nice. A relaxed silhouette is key too, as it lends this glamorous trend a touch of casualness.
Style It With/Accessories
Downplay metallic's glam factor with unfussy, low-key accents, like Aldo's Flojoey Boots ($110) in Black Suede, Zara's Quilted Citybag ($90), and J.Crew's Tortoise Mini-Barrette ($10).--Tiffany Tse
