Metallics during the holidays? You're probably thinking groundbreaking… but there's something different about the typical holiday trend this year—it was huge on the F/W 16 runways of Michael Kors, Saint Laurent, Tibi, and more, and the fashion crowd was already wearing it during fashion week back in September.
Based on the number of retailers that have made metallics a benchmark of their fall collections, don't expect this trend to die once January arrives. The beauty of the gleaming fabrics is they can be swapped for (or paired with) neutrals. In fact, metallics complement practically every hue on the color wheel. Add to that the fact that it's an effortless way to dress up any outfit.
Since metallics aren't exactly for wallflowers (they'll get you noticed), if you're the more sartorially subdued type, there are a slew of sleek metallic accessories on the market if you just want to dabble in the trend. (We're particularly smitten with gold and silver block-heel ankle boots right now.)
