Thinking about being dramatic? There’s only one trend that will make that happen this festive season: metallics. Let’s us cast our minds down the memory lane for a minute. Metallic trend came into fashion during the 70s. The most flashy and glitzy of the 70s inspired fashion trend is metallics which was also known as the “disco fashion”. During that era, glittery dresses were the best options only for evening wear.
This retro look is back in vogue. The 1970s fashion has a massive influence on this season’s fashion trend. Now the question is, ” how do you wear this retro trend without looking like you are going clubbing and is it possible to mix-match metallics during the day?” In the previous post, i shared some tips on how to wear this trend. Now that you’ve learned the basics, it’s time for you to be daring and dramatic as well.
This look is 70s inspired. I decided to go for a casual look with a touch of glamour. I wore a pleated silver and black metallic midi skirt and tucked in a burgundy fitted turtleneck top with gold button details . Do you know turtleneck is one of the 70s must-have wardrobe staple? I am obsessed with turtlenecks because they can be worn with any piece. I added a belt (burgundy color) to accentuate my waist. It’s possible to wear metallics during the day if only you wear it with monochromatic colors, mild or earthly tones. I paired the outfit with silver sneakers (white soles) . How dramatic! I matched it with a black purse with gold details , a gold watch and burgundy earrings. My look wouldn’t have been perfect without my favorite lipstick.
It is possible to mix-match metallics however, remember less is more when it comes to accessorizing. Silver, gold , copper tones, glitters and sequins have become the hottest trend this festive season. Whether day or night, casual or classic, this statement piece always add glamour to our look!
