Want to look as luxe as your fave celebrities? Inject a dose of metallic star power into your closet with our easy how-to tips.
L to R: Olivia Palermo’s shiny shoes; Kim Kardashian’s metallic velvet dress; Lauren Conrad’s metallic accents; Brooklyn Decker’s metallic mini skirt
Do: Make sure the metallic item is the focus of your outfit. Pair metallic jeans (7 For All Mankind skinnies are a on-trend pick) with wardrobe basics (think an easy tee and statement necklace), or let a metallic top pop through a leather jacket to show it off.
Don’t: Wear multiple metallics at once. It’s best to stick to one piece at a time (start by adding this faux leather H&M skirt) and build the rest of your outfit around it to let the embellishment steal the spotlight.
Do: From loafers (try this pair from Coach) to gold or silver manicures, look for ways to play up your look by accessorizing neutrals or brights with a metallic twist.
Don’t: Load on heavy accessories when sporting a strong metallic piece, like a dress or shiny blazer (this Topshop one is a standout). Instead, streamline your look with basic accessories, easy breezy hair, and clean makeup for maximum impact.
