Trend Spotting: Mixed Metals

The possibilities are endless with this season’s trend, Mixed Metals!  Whether it be mixing silver and gunmetal, or gold and shiny black, the sky’s the limit.  This trend extends to statement-making metallic embellishments such as studs, spikes, buttons, medallions, metal tubing and buckles.

Style Calling hails this trend as one that will compliment any skin shade and can easily go from night to day,  “On trend, this season, silvers, gunmetals, shiny blacks and crisp sparkling whites – a pop of metallic adds a sleek element to your look and can take you from day to night effortlessly.  Metallic shades have a special advantage when it comes to complimenting any skin tone and pair well with many colors.”

What are your favorite metals?

The unapologetic sass of gold?

The rich gleam of bronze?

Cool and bright silver?

Smoldering gunmetal?

The wicked shine of black?

Clean sizzling white?

Yes please, I’ll take one of each…

How should you flaunt the metals?

Step out in our Bazooka Thong Sandal with dressy capris, a shapely tunic, and piles of bangles for some sunny day style.

Or how about the Capetown Oxford Shoe?  An anything-but-traditional, Oxford-style shoe all blinged out with modern colors and metal accents.  Go ahead and wear that cardigan, and be sure to add your fedora with a metallic band, a few chunky rings, and that awesome gold bag

Big weekend plans require wardrobe planning.  But that planning gets super easy when you have a pair of Lauuriin Double Ankle Strap Wedge Sandals in your closet!  Pull on that slinky dress and dig out your boldest lip gloss.  You’ll turn heads all night!

Who doesn’t love a good sweater dress?  Not only are they smoking hot, but they are all-day comfortable and let you pile on the accessories!  Don’t forget your Gillen Stiletto Pumps, a sexy hip belt, some big hoop earrings and a pair of leather gloves.

Add some danger to the room with some skin tight pants, a bright off-the-shoulder top, your Jamily Peep Toe Wedges, smudgy eye makeup and a spiked baseball cap.  Crazy hot and unforgettable!

The fun you can have with metals is endless!  Wear them mixed or alone – they suit the dress code at the office just as easily as they ramp up your party look. The versatility of this trend has caught the attention of top designers. According to Marie Claire, “This season’s collections are full of silver, gold, and bronze, with gold and silver embellishment being a huge focus.”
