After fashion week ended and all our favorite street style stars went back to their respective cities, they brought back a certain trend we can’t get enough of: Metallic pieces that make us all feel like the shining stars we are. A hint of metallic gold, silver, or even blue gives an outfit more interest and style points like no other. And while this eye-catching style may seem intimidating, we're here to tell you that anyone can wear these high-fashion pieces.
The key is to go for a luxe look and keep the fabric from looking like that cheap old New Year’s Eve dress hidden in the back of all our closets. Pair a metallic skirt with a casual button-down or cozy turtleneck sweater for a day in the office, or go bold with statement-making knee-high boots and your favorite plaid miniskirt. Whatever you choose, when looking to freshen up your style for the New Year, you can never go wrong with metallics.
