Let’s face it, winter dressing can be a little … well, how shall we say?  A little DULL.  What better way to brighten up your life by adding a little high-shine.

For the last few months, SS16 runways across the globe have all been awash with liquid-metallics in every hue.  Heavenly gold pleated skirts, slinky-silver slip dresses and gorgeous metallic brogues ruled.

The stores are slowly catching up with the trend and some seriously eye-catching pieces have began dropping into our stores.

Go easy though.  A little too much shiny and you run the risk of looking like a walking disco-ball.  Less is definitely more when it comes to high-shine.  To keep the look wearable (and to avoid causing temporary blindness) keep the rest of your outfit simple.  Pair that gold pleated skirt with a grey-sweatshirt or a black silk shirt and add sneakers for daytime, heels for night-time (remember this trend is wearable night AND day).  Same goes for the metallic brogues, pair with a simple jeans and t-shirt ensemble.  If you just want to dip a toe into the trend, check out the beautiful metallic clutch bags available.  Just add to your LBD and instantly update your look.

Style tip : metallic is a beautiful addition to spring whites and worn denim.
