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.

Metallic boots are everything this season. Add a knee-high silver pair to a casual outfit for a runway-inspired everyday look.
Let your shiny top take center stage. Pair with slouchy jeans and strappy shoes for major '90s vibes.
Too cold for your going-out dress? No problem: Layer a long-sleeve top under an attention-grabbing frock, and complete the look with on-trend cowboy boots.
Sheer socks are perfectly dreamy when paired with your favorite metallic heels. Add a checked miniskirt and expect major compliments on your styling tricks.
Don't be afraid to mix two different metallic tones—it'll add the perfect amount of interest to your look. Finish the ensemble with a pair of comfortable boots.
Struggling to find the perfect outfit for your next holiday party? A matching set always looks polished, and the metallic sheen is perfect for the season's festivities.
Here's a tip to make your metallic pieces appropriate for the workplace: Tone down metallic pants with a classic black blazer and turtleneck.
