Don't panic, it's metallic!

Think of your most basic pieces and take them to glimmering new heights. Silvery metallics boast a celebratory spirit—it’s time to let them entice all season long! Don't limit these shiny separates for soirees or celebrations, for they add unexpected oomph to otherwise regular daywear. Try these looks out and stand out from the crowd!

Beaming Bohemian
The glinting effect of your off-shoulder ensemble sets your look apart from your average day get up. Team a matching top and skirt for a full-on shimmy effect, and for your accessories, add a Midas touch. Say, a shoulder-grazing set of dangling earrings. There’s your 24-hour chic.

Tip: Mesmerize all the more with a shiny space gray top that peeks through your off-shoulder top.

Glossy and Classic
For that modest shine, heritage tweed could use a hint of sparkle in the form of golden threads. But if high-voltage shimmer is what you’re after, cue in a molten-silver pleated skirt. No matter the time of day, these flashers never fail to uplift and flatter. Why not double up the pizzazz by pairing them together?

Tip: By day, let the tweed jacket catch the ray of light. Come dusk, reveal a sexy string-strapped sequined top for that after-party glamour.

Flashy Minimal
Don’t just keep a sexy silky slip dress in the boudoir. Let it see the light of day by partnering it with a gold tee for that high-shine approach. If you’re not done dusting off the glitter yet, adding slick silver hardware feels equally effortless whether it be daytime or nighttime.

Tip: A patent leather nip-in-the-waist belt lends luster and unexpected attitude to an otherwise typical outfit.
