Model on the Michael Kors Runway Wearing Metallic Accessories

Metallics will be a huge trend this upcoming fall, and accessories from handbags to shoes will be sparkling and shining with the iridescent shades of gold, silver, platinum, and others. Even darker shades, like gunmetal gray and bronze, will be in style for fashion accessories and can add a glamorous vibe to your outfit.

Metallics are now being considered neutrals and instead of your typical black, white and nude, you can wear these shiny accessories to neutralize a busier ensemble.  Simple metallic accessories perfectly complement bright colors as well, and can be used in striking combinations: with patent leather, bright colors blocks, bold prints, etc. Fashion lately has been all about minimalism, and luxury and metallic accessories expertly combines both trends.

Regardless of your fashion taste, one can easily find metallic accessories to be glamorous and modern but with a sleek and clean look.  They’re simple to wear but make bold fashion statements. Metallic finishes that are subtle can truly be worn anywhere, and there are so many ways to incorporate a metallic into your look.

Whether you’re rocking a pair of metallic shoes, a handbag or clutch, or jewelry, metallics will definitely add some sparkle and shine to your outfit. Wear metallics with your daytime look by pairing them with bright prints or a classic gray, white or black ensemble. Look for sandals or flats that come in metallic shades because they are great choices for relaxed weekend dresses or beachy maxis. Also, cinch a loose dress with a metallic belt for a sophisticated, fitted look or around a sexy LBD for a glamorous night option. Metallic heels would offer a sleek finish to any cocktail or evening dress and add just the right amount of sex appeal to get you noticed.  Carry a metallic clutch that strikingly complements your dress but makes a statement on its own and comfortably fits all of your essentials.

You can outshine everybody else this summer and upcoming fall with the trendy use of metallics. They will light up your wardrobe and prove to be investment pieces when you’re looking for accessories that can transcend across seasons.  When looking to buy metallic accessories, look for all kinds of materials; there aren’t any clear rules but the most popular and suitable options are usually gold, gold-tone, silver, copper, platinum, bronze, brass. For jewelry, metallics can come in a smooth, solid metal or any hammered metal which has a textured finish. This trend is clean, simple, minimalist, and modernist and it’s a strong look that will give you a sophisticated and glamorous appearance but with a touch of sexiness and boldness.
