How to Wear Metallics During the Day


Oh metallics, my love for you is still going strong…

 Wearing: Zara Silver Skirt (Similar here), Black Tee, White Sneakers, Leather Jacket (Similar here). 

As a thirty-something (for some reason I can’t remember the exact number!), mother of a small child, the reality is.. my need for metallic, shiny party wear is,  well… diminishing!

Which is why I make my metallics work for the day.

My number one tip to make metallics day wear suitable is… to just add sneakers! This actually applies to anything dressy really, sequins, metallics, party dresses.. it works with them all!
My next ‘dressing down’ technique is to pair your dressy piece with either a t-shirt (if it’s a metallic skirt you are styling, like I am above) or adding in some denim, whether it be jeans or a denim jacket, for example a metallic cami could work well during the day with some blue denim jeans and white sneakers.
Lastly, I would try to keep the accessories to a minimum, small, simple pieces are your best bet, perhaps a dainty necklace or ring stack, you don’t want the accessories to dress up the look too much.
If you are still not convinced but would love to add some metallics to your day look.. go for some metallic slides or a metallic cross body bag

    Always dress down with sneakers. I have a silver mini that I do the same with, though, I haven’t worn it in a while now, really. A tee and sneakers though is the answer for sure.
