Chic and fabulous with metallic Highlights.
Before I begin swooning over my latest obsession let me start by telling you that I am a huge fan of the Disco Era. The good news is, metallics are trending bigger than ever! The even better news is: anything iridescent is no longer holiday or evening-related - fantastic metallic now glams up the days!
What are we waiting for, let’s be Daylight Disco Divas then! Sounds great, but is it really that simple? Well, I’m afraid there is a very thin line between looking like a dazzling daytime Fashionista and the female version of the tin man. So where do we start?
Whenever I feel uncertain about styling bold trending materials that may look over the top as a full outfit I prefer to take a careful approach: I start with accessories and/or shoes and then, step by step, work myself up to more daring pieces.
My latest metallic obsession was triggered by a beautiful pair of silver slingbacks by Högl adorned with genuine Swarovski Crystals designed by Jean Paul Gaultier – a touch of Haute Couture never killed nobody! This sleek and super comfy pump inspired me to incorporate shiny sparkles to my daytime look – I kept the rest of the outfit in muted tones with a powder pink coat, a simple grey t-shirt and cropped denims to balance out the shiny silvers yet give them some space to sparkle.
My next purchase was a bit more daring: a bodycon pencil skirt in gun metal – this one seemed a bit more challenging to rock during the day. I teamed it up with a crisp white shirt – it turned out to be the best way to tone the skirt down so it could just as easily be worn on duty. You could always top it with a black blazer instead of a biker jacket to make it even more business appropriate.
Then I stepped it up a gear and chose a gold leather jacket – now this is a beautiful bold piece that makes a big statement. As I was aiming for daylight disco diva rather than looking like a “walking disco ball” I preferred to style it with a black combo – a simple crop top and cute pants with ruffled trims – a lovely outfit that I absolutely feel great in. And do I really need to mention that those iridescent mules by Högl are beyond fabulous? I mean, how could a Fashion girl resist?
