Slinky chain mail, rich brocade and flashy silk are fabrics typically reserved for after-dark dressing. Designers however have repositioned metallic this season for acceptable daytime attire.
Shimmering silver loungewear separates was seen at uber stylist/designer Rachel Zoe, foiled dresses at Proenza Schouler and Balmain's alloy bomber jackets are just some of the many catwalks that shone brightly. Our high streets will also soon be showered in sparkle with affordable ways to introduce this new spring trend into your wardrobe.
For modern luxe that looks effortless, team a metallic jersey top with denim or choose fabrics with a subtle metallic weave in their design. For a bolder statement, a piece of bling is the easiest way for head-turning style. Think sheeny handbags, OTT jewellery, sparkling footwear and anything that embraces your inner magpie.
It may seem awkward or rather royal to consider going for gold during the light of the day, but it can be rather liberating too.
