By far one of the most exciting trends I'm embracing this year is bright and bold metallics. Eye-catching silver and gold hues, in particular, had a huge presence on the spring/summer 2023 runways—spotted on everything from outerwear and shoes to pants and handbags at shows such as Tory Burch, Nensi Dojka, Bottega Veneta, Paco Rabanne, Valentino, Gucci, JW Anderson, Jason Wu… the list goes on.
While metallics usually get their time to shine in fall and winter what makes metallics feel so fresh and alluring is the idea of adding them effortlessly to our warm-weather wardrobes. (And don't worry—they'll certainly be sticking around for the colder season too after spotting them far and wide on the recent F/W 23 runways).
How fun and refreshingly cool to pair your white tank top with relaxed silver pants, or your jeans with gold Mary Janes, or give a casual little white dress an of-the-moment touch with a silver handbag. Quite honestly, the styling options are endless and above all exciting—proving that metallics are versatile, modern, and cool for both day and night.
Of course, fashion people have been quick to take on the fun trend—we've already spotted silver and gold hues in full force during fashion month, as well as on celebs, and the fashion Instagram set. If you need extra encouragement to try the trend this spring and summer, take a peek below for plenty of styling inspiration from the runways and fashion crowd, and then shop our favorite silver and gold pieces that feel modern and fresh for the season ahead.
