How To Wear Metallic Pieces 24/7

How does one wear metallic clothing without looking like a Quality Street sweetie wrapper? There’s a delicate little line between looking a bit devil-may-care cool or just very, very shiny! What’s apparent from a study of the designer S/S 16 collections is that this styling concern needs to be confidently sorted out ASAP because metallic jackets, bags, trousers, and were all over the catwalks, and will be sparkling on rails, in ads and on your go-to sites with almost immediate effect.

We may have mastered the art of wearing a pleated maxi skirt thanks to Alexa (slouchy cashmere jumper plus ankle boots, got that, thank you), but what of the Loewe high-shine, unapologetic trousers that come with an in-built mirror ball, to speak in superlatives?! We leave no sequin unturned, and take to the street style photo archives for styling tricks for the day, and catwalk look books to find out how to get metallics on point at night, so you can wear it 24/7 throughout party season and into spring.
