How to Wear Metallic Colours

According to Elle, one of the biggest fashion magazines in the world, metallic shades were huge in 2015. These exciting tones are bold, bright and beautiful, allowing you to let your inner fashion goddess shine, which is why we think they might be just as popular in 2016!

But they can be a bit ‘out there;’ metallics are kind of hard to pull off, so many women choose to refrain from wearing them. If you want to embrace the metallic trend, check out these five tips from the Luxe Models team to find out how to rock these shiny tones.

Keep it simple

As a rule of thumb, we’d suggest you stick to wearing one metallic piece of clothing per outfit. If you opt for two or more, you could end up resembling a character from a sci-fi movie. Keep it simple and pair metallics with more subtle pieces to nail this daring trend.

Consider colour

Metallics can be kind of tricky – they don’t go with every colour, so we’d suggest you pair them with clothes in neutral tones to play it safe. Silver metallics work fabulously with whites, greys and blacks, while gold and copper metallics go better with pinks, creams and greys.

Opt for the right fit

Metallic pieces show off everything. Therefore if you choose to wear metallic clothing that’s too short or too tight, these pieces could provide your body with a distinctly unflattering silhouette. Make sure you know your body’s measurements and opt for metallic pieces that fit you like a glove.

Hair and makeup

When it comes to metallics subtlety is key, so you might want to keep your hair and makeup simple when you don these brilliant pieces. As far as hair goes, you may want to either let it fly free or keep it loosely curled. Meanwhile, opt for makeup in neutral tones such as white, grey and black to emphasise, without overcrowding, this dazzling look.

Be fearless

Here we turn to one of the most basic rules of fashion – confidence is everything. Work metallics fearlessly and without hesitation. If you wear these statement items with trepidation you’ll look uncomfortable, and you can’t pull them off without a good dash of confidence!

Rock metallic clothing!

We can understand why many women hesitate to wear metallic clothing, but you really don’t need to. If you follow these tips presented by the Luxe Models team, you’ll have everything you need to rock metallic items in 2016!
