As the London Olympic Summer Games begin, we know you’ll be rooting for gold for your country’s athletes. Whether or not you’re going to be glued to the Olympics, you can still rock out in one of our favourite summer fashion trends- metallics in shades of gold, silver and bronze- just like the medals our Olympians are aiming for.
The key to working shimmering shades of metal in summer months is to keep your outfit effortless, using the metallic piece as a statement among cool, casual materials. Pair this adorable silver pullover by Acne with pastel jeans in a pretty mint green. The bronze of this glorious Halston Heritage playsuit is far from third place when topped with an easy faded jean jacket or beach-wavy hair and minimal accessories. This on-trend gold peplum mini dress would be a style champion with a tough leather moto jacket tossed over it and a messy topknot.
For The Win
If these full-on shine pieces are too much for you to handle, the trend we love can be emulated through mixed-metal accessories that glamourize any look, like this ABS strand necklace (worn with cute leather shorts and a sheer blouse) or this amazing Butter London nail polish trio with one shade for each medal of the summer games. Choose a hue- and advance to the podium! Are you feeling Olympian yet?
