How to Wear Metallics During the Day (and Not Look Like a Disco Ball)


Runways and red carpets have already proved that metallics are not just for the holiday season. Still, walking around in the daytime in a shimmery piece can be daunting. (Who wants to look like a disco ball?) While looking to Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana and Lanvin’s Fall 2016 collections are good places to get your sartorial juices flowing, they are not exactly everyday wear. Cue Style Panel. This week, we tapped our style experts on how to wear the metallic trend during the day. From gold blazers to silver skirts, scroll down to see 9 different ways to incorporate a little dazzle into your day.

We’re seeing a lot of metallics recently, but it’s hard to think of ways to incorporate the trend during the day without feeling over the top. The way I wear metallics on a day-to-day basis is by wearing these metallic flats from Asos. They’re stunning and can easily upgrade any outfit. The sparkles on the back also make it fun and not feel like your typical ballet flats.

The blazer is one of my go-to pieces – I possess it in every possible colour and shape. This silver metallic one is a favourite to wear for all occasions. During the day, I love to wear it with a little slip dress and a pair of Adidas Stan Smith sneakers. I always manage to dress down a nighttime piece with a pair of sneakers, because it makes the look more comfortable and fun to wear!
