Sometimes, a metallic sheen looks far more sophisticated as compared to saturated shine. Add a statement blazer with a subtle sheen to your wardrobe to accentuate your evening-wear basics. Andrew Garfield swaps a regular tuxedo jacket for a metallic, gun metal one to stylise his red-carpet outfit.
T-shirts never go out of style and a good way to give your T-shirt collection an update is to pick ones with a metallic graphic print. Whether it is writing or a motif, if you’re sporting a mid-sized print, a metallic one makes for a good alternative.
We aren’t suggesting you opt for shiny shoes. Instead, you can pick a pair with a metallic cap-toe or a slight sheen. Whether you choose a shiny finish or a matte one is entirely up to how avant garde you want your outfit to be. However, restricting the metallic element only to the caps of your shoes makes the trend wearable and unique.
For someone who is willing to experiment with metallic hues in a measured, restrained manner, opting for fabrics with flecks of metallic colour running through them makes for a great start. A basic grey T-shirt with silver flecks is must-have if you want to transform your everyday jeans and T-shirt look. Similarly picking a bomber jacket with a bronze or copper trim can elevate its appearance and make it a statement piece.
Wearing metallic tones is all about creating balance. Keep metallic elements to a minimum and use pieces in colours such as chocolate brown, tan, beige, navy, grey and white to soften the impact and create balance.
