ALL IN THE DETAILS: Metallic Madness

It is such a relief to look out the window every morning and see bright green grass instead of heaping piles of snow on the ground. It also makes picking out outfits much easier! Spring is a time to once again shed your warm winter layers and express yourself through floral prints and pastel colors. Something new added to the trend mix this season is the use of metallic colors.

Ah, metallics. Now I know what you are thinking: if you are not careful you can end up looking like a Halloween costume gone wrong or an alien with shiny leggings. I prefer to use metallics in a subtle manner but still manage to make a statement.

This Fashionista has the right idea! She started her look with a basic pair of dark wash jeans, a staple in any Fashionista’s wardrobe. Next, she fell under spring fever and sprung for a floral print top. It is still a bit breezy out so the outfit is topped off with a classic gray cardigan, a great piece to put on before going to class.

Now for the show stopper, metallic flats.This Fashionista chose silver flats to bring a little bit of life to her look. I like the silver for day time as well because the color is light and fun. Time to accessorize: this is my favorite part of styling an outfit! This Fashionista chose silver jewelry to complement her shoes. Monogram necklaces are always a great piece that will leave your outfit looking put-together. Paired with a large-face watch, you are now ready to conquer the world.

How To: Are you afraid that metallics are too much for daytime? Have no fear, you can easily throw on a pair of metallic pumps with your LBD and some red lipstick to have a great look for a night on the town!
