Bosworth’s most recent collection for Topshop heavily featured metallics, so she knows the territory well. Here she pairs her own Foil Wrap Skirt ($170) and Buttermilk Leather Sweater ($210) with Stella McCartney Brooke Wedges ($955) in White, showing that metallics can be daytime-appropriate as long as you keep the palette pale.
Never one to shy away from making a bold sartorial statement, Moss donned a floor-length silver duster recently in London. Note that she teams it with an all-black, high-necked romper and opaque tights keep the look grounded. The blue purse from her namesake Longchamp collection provides subtle interest.
While celebrating in Rio this fall, Delevingne donned a slinky silver tank with a pair of skinny white leather pants. Keeping the tank loose-fitting helps to counterbalance its sexiness, while her tousled hair and minimal jewellery provide a relaxed vibe. Similar tanks here and here.
During Fashion Month, Battaglia threw a short-sleeved crinkled coat over a jacquard skirt and gold Gianvito Rossi Pumps ($578). The textured topper and full jacquard skirt keep the look regal, rather than garish.
Madekwe cinches her simple, strapless Three Floor Jumpsuit with a metallic belt that matches her Moxham x Three Floor Mars choker. The evening look is finished with a pair of simple strappy sandals from Saint Laurent.
Donning a pair of metallic sandals over socks can add interest to a layered winter look as modelled here by Foley with her fluffy blue coat (similar here), red crossbody and all black basics.
Keeping the shape demure and the accessories minimal, this full-skirted gold dress is a wonderfully ladylike interpretation of the trend. Ong scores extra points for mixing silver pumps with her gold dress.
