Spring 2013 Trend Alert: Metallics


So, it's definitely been a WHILE since I've updated you all with the current goings-on in the fashion industry [not like you need me to tell you what's going on anyway...]

Maybe you've all noticed lately an increase the need to wear your sunnies due to glare? No no, your eyes haven't become more sensitive to light...it's the resurgence of Metallics!

 Metallic Trend; Spring 2013

 *haha I'm actually pretty proud of this one*

*ahem* So yes, while metallics have been around since the dawn of...metal, many designers have felt the creative pull towards these radiant and reflective materials, featuring them in their last-year's-to-be-worn-this-year's collections.
These include Diane von Furstenberg, Blumarine and [maybe my fave of all] Burberry. [maybe you remember some shiny, colorful Burberry pieces from a previous post?]
In fact, part of the reason that I react particularly well to their collection, may be due to the fact that I love color; bright, bold color...and that these "metallics" are not simply the golds, silvers and bronzes we have become accustomed to... Yes, classic and as chic as ever...but these nouveau metallics force one to step out the box and opens up so many new and exciting styling possibilities.

So, while you let that sink in and decide to step away from the blacks, tans and neutrals in your closet...I'll be out searching for the brightest, boldest some easy-to-integrate pieces to mix into my existing wardrobe.

And, just for fun...celebs wearing shiny clothes!
