When searching for that perfect holiday look a few key items come to mind: velvet, sparkles, sequins, dresses, heels…but one thing thats fresh for this holiday season…METALLICS!
Amp up your holiday style this season by choosing a party piece that’s metallic: a dress, a skirt, pants, bag, shoes…anything thing that catches your eye will definitely do the same to others! Stand out in the crowd!!
Here are a 5 outfit staple metallic items I’m loving this season and how to style them into the perfect party outfit!
1. A Dress
Swap your LBD for a metallic version this winter. Amp up the look even more with a sequined version (like this one). Layer with tights and a fun velvet blazer to stay warm. Add a pop of royal blue flats to liven up this neutral look and top it off with layered chokers! Don’t forget your beaded statement bag…Now you have an AWESOME party look!
2. A Skirt
Maybe a dress is too much metallic for you…so go with a skirt! There’s plenty of metallic options to choose from: keep it classy in a pleated midi length or go wild with a metallic mini (like this one). Pair with a lingerie inspired top for added sex appeal, but cover up with a military inspired blazer. Keep those legs warm in thigh high boots. Then add a pop of burgundy with a fun clutch and some gold accent jewelry!
Love to dance at parties? Not a problem, swap the skirt/dress for a pair of pants. Jazz them up with a metallic pair in gunmetal (like these ones) or gold! Pair them with a fun ruffled off-the-shoulder blousy (tucked in) and some strappy heels. Make the look pop with a burgundy clutch and matching bold red lip!
4. A Top
Put a spin on a classic outfit by pairing your wide-leg trousers with a metallic top. For a sexier look opt for a deep-v or backless bodysuit version (like this one). Choose a trouser in black or cream and pair with coordinating neutral strappy heels. Top the look off with a POP of color in your outerwear piece, coordinating accessories, and a statement bag to create a great Party Look!
Not ready for metallic clothing? That’s cool, start small with metallic accessories: metallic shoes (like these ones) or a metallic clutch (like this one). Dress to impress with a classic black suit, with high waisted trousers. Go for a sexier look by layering under a lace bralette or keep it classy with a tie neck blouse. Accessorize with minimal jewelry to keep your metallic pieces the statement!
