The metallic trend was flagged last year on international runways and has carried over into this year. The main thing to remember when wearing those shiny, metallic numbers is that a little goes a long way. With light bouncing off you, a subtle addition of metallic will be enough to give your outfit a lift. Metallic tones create a point of difference against other colours. Pair a metallic item with a darker shade to create a timeless evening look and don’t be afraid to mix it with different textures. A touch of rose gold, very much the in thing this year, particularly with jewellery, adds a softer metallic element and gives a perfect mix of neutral and shine.
