Fashionista NOW: How To Wear Metallic For Fall Fashion Inspiration

How to wear the metallic trend without looking like you just returned from the future?

Besides the use of color to rejuvenate your wardrobe, why not try the metallic color trend to give spruce up your look this season?

Somebody somewhere mentions that metallic (silver) is the new nude and that it can be approached as that of a neutral canvas color. While I do think that in a way that it may be treated as such especially for the adventurous lot but a conservative dresser would find a glittery shoe or a dress pretty out there.

Although the metallic color trend was celebrated earlier in spring and in a post I’d written on what to wear for Valentine’s, there is no reason not to ease it into your fall or winter wardrobes.

The cool light-reflecting silver is especially perfect for the cooler seasons. In fact, Roland Alzate, a Filipino fashion designer has just recently showcased his collection of 70s-inspired metallic jumpsuits and long dresses at the Malaysia Fashion Week, revealing the versatility of the flashy fabric. Let’s also acknowledge that unlike matte solid colors, a metallic finish has a unique way of punctuating a look with an touch of iridescent sheen.

To find out how to best wear the metallic trend in a stylish and understated manner, scroll on down for a treat:

Wear a pleated midi skirt in metallic silver to brighten up a completely all-black look. Just the same, except in the opposite spectrum, the black colored separates, bags and shoes help to anchor the look down.

Instead of cool silver, opt for a rustic gold metallic skirt, also rendered in pleats to go with pinstriped top, a burgundy bag and a patterned heel for an autumn-friendly outfit iteration.

Layer a gray top over a mini metallic skirt that is then layered over black tapered jeans. The peek of metallic transforms this pretty casual look.

metallic boots | Floortje Van Cooten

If the only wear you’d wear metallic is through an accent feature in a wardrobe, do it through footwear. Wear ankle boots in dark silver metallic with an almost all-black garb that’s topped off with a wild leopard print coat.

metallic heels | Yentl Van der Zee

Here’s another wearable way to wear a metallic heel – in an outfit that is made of black, gray and white.

A lace-up shoe in metallic can be worn with a casual top-and-denim combo in gray and blue. A blush pink coat thrown over the casual ensemble injects a feminine feel and dress up the look a little bit.
