Fashion Rocks Out with Heavy Metal
How to wear the metallic trend. No music skills required, just a lot of glam!
Fashion is rocking out with heavy metal but it sure isn’t about the hair bands. Just the hint of a rock and roll wild child with some big time designer edge!
We’re loving the elegant glitz of metallic fabrics and leathers for both day and night. They play out best when paired with something subtle, like khaki rolled hem pants and super platform bronze shoes or a metallic steel leather trench over a simple grey flannel pencil skirt. Black opaque tights tone down a lame or liquid bronze dress for something more date worthy.
The key to avoid looking tacky is to not pile too many metallics on at one time.
If you’re gun shy, simply revisit the iconic metal chain shoulder bag or fabric with a slick gunmetal sheen, like metallic denim, for an elegant touch. But it wouldn’t hurt if you mix in a strong dose of studs, nail heads, chainmaille, metal accents, and grommets galore to create some punky pizzazz to otherwise classic pieces.
