Wearable Metallics

I like shiny things. In fact, I love ’em. In my home I’ve used metallic accessories to add a luxe touch to what is quite a neutral black, white and grey scheme (see ‘Marvellous Monochrome’ post) but I also love wearing shiny fabrics and accessories.

I happen to live near a Matalan outlet store. I very rarely go in, more out of Eden not being a fan of long shopping trips than anything else, but this week he was kind enough to allow me to peruse their ‘30% off already discounted items’ sale. (Thanks, son.)

That’s how I found what may well become my new favourite t-shirt; a very wearable metallic silver short-sleeved top with a pocket detail on the front. Very minimalist. Very easy to wear. Very shiny.

I now have quite a collection of clutch bags, some of my favourite of which are the ones with a metallic finish. Take, for example, this one; a superb example of what I affectionately call ‘trashy chic’:

Very maximalist. Very fun to rock. Also very shiny.

DKNY have got the right idea:

As have Topshop and H&M:

Metallics are pretty much everywhere right now so if you want to experiment, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find something you like to suit every budget. Plus, they’re a super-easy way for busy mamas to look great without having to spend ages getting ready: a gold or silver top thrown on with jeans rocks, as do metallic trainers or ballet flats. Effortlessly glam. Shine on!
