The Shiny Dress Is A Fall 2017 Trend You’ll Love

Whether you have a formal gala in the weeks ahead or you’re simply heading out for a night on the town, the little black dress can become tiresome after a while. While there’s no doubting that the LBD is a sartorial essential, it looks like the metallic frock is set to make a glamorous statement this autumn. From Vivienne Tam to Ulla Johnson, turn your eyes to the runways for the perfect example of how to embrace this eveningwear trend.

Vivienne Tam

For a hint of colour, draw your inspiration from the Vivienne Tam catwalk. Slip into a ruched dark blue metallic number, accented with a V-neckline and long sleeves. With its shiny sheen and expert draping, this frock has a formal design with a wearable aesthetic at the same time. Meanwhile, the black buckled booties lend a casual, versatile feel to a dramatic dress.

Christian Siriano

With its warm coppery hue, this strappy Christian Siriano dress is suitable for the red carpet itself. The dainty spaghetti straps and plunging neckline add a hint of drama, while the thin pleats and iridescent hemline lend a party-ready feel.

Ulla Johnson

At Ulla Johnson, the metallic dress was decidedly modest and demure. With cap sleeves and a round neckline, this crinkled bronze frock is versatile and can even offer inspiration for your next after hours business function. We are liking the asymmetrical hemline and the textured fabric, which help to create visual interest.
