This summer it’s all about metallics, with all things gold, silver, copper and pewter stealing the show and making our style shine bright. For summer ’13, all that glitters is most definitely glamorous.
Forever a classic, metallic is actually bang-on-trend right now, currently enjoying something of a resurgence in popularity. We’re not surprised – it’s always been one of our favourite ways to ‘wow’ on summer nights – you can’t beat a shimmering fabric against a starry backdrop.
The fabulous thing about metallics is that you can opt for full-on maximum glamour with a statement dress, or sex up your style with a sparkling accessory – two ways to wear it, both with an impact.
When it comes to our accessory must-haves, we highly recommend snapping up the J by Jasper Conran gold clutch bag or Red Herring rose metallic clutch bag, set off by the Jon Richard gold mesh bracelet.
If you have a bit of a shoe obesession (let’s face it – who doesn’t?) then the Red Herring light gold pumps, Butterfly by Matthew Williamson metallic embellished sandals, Principles by Ben de Lisi silver heeled sandals and Faith gold wedge sandals are our absolute favourites to step out in this summer.
Naomie Watts, Diane Kruger, Halle Berry and Helen Mirren are just a few of the stylish names we’ve spotted in metallics recently – get Naomi’s look with the gorgeous Quiz silver maxi dress (above), or channel The Great Gatsby with flapper girl chic from the No. 1 by Jenny Packham peach metallic gown. Feeling a little blue? The Butterfly by Matthew Williamson metallic sequin dress should perk you up.
