ALL IN THE DETAILS: Mirror Mirror

As we go into the warm weather months, many people start shying away from heavier fabrics for obvious reasons. In warmer weather, we are more comfortable in lightweight, maybe even some sheer, fabrics. One trend that we all need to keep an eye out for is the metallic one. This metallic look isn’t a typical aesthetic that we think of for spring. Metallic is deceiving because most associate it with a heavy, winter vibe, except it doesn’t have to be! It gives this new perspective on spring clothing and is definitely something everyone needs to experiment with this week.

This Fashionista shows us how to incorporate the metallic trend into a perfect look. She adds some metallic into her look with these awesome metallic oxford-inspired shoes. With the shoes, she pairs some simple black socks that peak out at her ankles. Then, she is wearing some blue acid-wash skinny jeans with a black and red checked top. Over her top, she throws on a gray leather motorcycle jacket. To complete the look, she wears some super cute sunglasses.

Step out of your comfort zone of typical floral prints for spring and get adventurous by adding in some metallic into your look. I think it is the ultimate detail to bring some depth or just creativity to any outfit!

How To: Want to get a little edgier this spring? Try mixing your metallic with some more typical spring-like looks. I suggest pairing a cool metallic top with a floral kimono. It is true, opposites do attract. Throw on some flared leg jeans and a pair of funky sandals to complete this trendy spring look.
