All that glit­ters

Say good­bye to bor­ing neu­trals and hello to bright metallics

Life & Style Weekend - - CLOSET - with Natalie Tink

I F YOU were to add a catch­phrase to my per­son­al­ity it would be “eas­ily dis­tracted by shiny things’’. I can’t get enough of sparkly metallics and it seems I’m not the only one. Metal­lic shades are back in a big way and with­out a pair of MC Ham­mer pants in sight. If think­ing about metallics takes you back to the ’80s and ’90s, never fear my friends – metal­lic shades are not what they once were. Now they bring with them a stylish twist to your cur­rent wardrobe and the best part is they match ev­ery­thing. Jeans, white tee, sil­ver flats and you are good to go from lunch to din­ner. LBD with rose gold state­ment ear­rings and you’re one fierce lady. Sim­ple sin­gle pieces of metallics can trans­form a look with­out hav­ing to buy a whole new out­fit. In 2017, it’s all about the shine. Whether it be in your wardrobe or home, we are quickly say­ing good­bye to bor­ing neu­trals and hello to bright bold metallics. This week I searched for the best of the best in metallics. Adding a lit­tle shine to footwear is the Frankie 4, su­per cute and su­per comfy Jenni sneak­ers in Tin Gold. Per­fect for busy gals on the go. Also while on footwear, I found my­self in flat-shoe nir­vana with these gor­geous sparkly kicks from Avar­cas Aus­tralia. Made from leather, they are very easy to wear and the per­fect week­ender. So ver­sa­tile, per­fect with jeans or a maxi dress. Ev­ery­where I wore these I was pinned down by strangers won­der­ing where I bought them. Chic shades from Oro­ton have quickly become my faves. Stun­ning rose gold fin­ish with my all-time favourite mir­rored lens. One can­not go past a fab­u­lous metal­lic clutch in gold or sil­ver from Miss Mono­gram. A must-have item for events sea­son and there’s noth­ing quite as stylish as wear­ing your own per­sonal brand. We can’t leave out the bling bling, and these stun­ning Ad­di­son ear­rings from Em­press Col­lec­tions are an ab­so­lute steal and the per­fect ad­di­tion to a date night. And one of my new finds I could not forget to men­tion is my Tan­gle Teezer from Eva­lyn Par­sons Hair Sa­lon. I don’t think my mane has ever felt so loved since I dis­cov­ered a kin­der way to brush – and the fact that it is bright gold was just the ic­ing on the cake.
