How To Wear Fall’s Metallic Fashion Trend

Light Up

With a whole lot of heavy fabrics, layers and thick knits, fall can easily become dull pretty quickly. Avoid the blur of autumn neutrals by infusing your cool weather look with lots of texture and hints of shine through the season’s luxe metallic touches and inspiration from the Giambattista Valli fall 2013 runway.

Shining Stars

Metallics don’t need to scream holiday- in fact, we prefer them toned down with menswear inspired fabrics and heavier pieces to contrast the shine. This runway look is a perfect starting point to a glimmering, glam fall look that’s ideal for work but can take you into evening.

How To Wear

Using staple pieces for a fall wardrobe such as tweed menswear-esque trousers, a sturdy satchel and neutral hues, inject your look with touches of texture to catch light and make a statement. You won’t need a wrist or neck full of accessories, because the shine of our special picks for coat and top mimic the eye-catching metallics of the runway. A bold textural coat can go with everything from workwear to a night-out frock, too.
