The metallic look is a perfect style to play with – there are so many cool ways you can wear it. Metallic shines, no wonder it works so well in space, and it is funky. Therefore the look can only work in a good combination. Here you can see me wearing lots of metallic, but with casual pieces it works and looks spacey by not overdoing it. Being in Barcelona for a couple of days I like to try out special styles and to present them in the lively city. The people here are so friendly and open, they talk loudly and they enjoy spending time together. It’s great fun sitting in a tapas bar, eating delicious specialties of the area and watching the crowds.
Metallic looks have risen from a disco style in the 80´s, to a recognized color in the fashion world. It works with dark colors and with a funky attitude.
Here you can see me wearing a pleated skirt from Zara in a washed out silver metallic and black style. Pleated skirts are trending right now and in combination with the trending color it really sparkles. I love how it shimmers when moving around. On top I kept it casual with a long dark green knitted turtleneck pullover from Céline. The long cut makes it elegant and it is a cool contrast to the rest of my metallic look. Along with the sweater I put on my black waist belt from Hèrmes with a big silver buckle and silver stud details. It picks up wonderfully with the style. When it gets cooler in the evening I have the hot short cut silver leather jacket from SET Fashion. A piece that goes with so many looks, a casual jeans outfit, or a pretty short dress – it highlights nearly everything.
My large green Hobo bag from MCM is the perfect partner in crime for my outfit. First of all I love the size, it fits all my essentials during a long day in Barcelona. The piece is made of fine Spanish leather, and it carries a signature Laurel lock. The label MCM is known for designing beautiful leather goods made of greatest quality. The style is elegant and innovative and it goes with the trend. Every kind of woman will find a perfect handbag at MCM, no matter what occasion it is meant to be for.
For a big last metallic eye-catcher I slipped into my cool H&M boots. They round up a strong metallic look, shining among with the rest of my outfit. With all this shimmering I need my sunglasses from Le Specs.
The metallic look is great fun to style and it gets you a lot of attention – if you’re open for it try it out, or just start by wearing single pieces.
