As one of the main highlights of the Spring/Summer 2013 runways, metallic clothing is shining with a fresh rendition of new fashion. Combining pastels with leathers and high-shine textures creates a nostalgic effect that leaves an endless fashion statement. I know what you may be thinking – aren’t metallics for space age suits or Sci-fi movies? No. Finding a balance between elegance and a casual relaxed look is key to embracing the metallic trend.
Metallics pair well with confidence, a relaxed attitude, feminine pieces, basic black, and bold hues. Silver metallics have a fundamental element that remains classic and adds an extra level of contrast to a variety of looks, reaching cutting-edge levels of polish with a futurist twist .
