The Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear runways have shown a significant amount of 70’s boho chic, but it’s another a trend that REALLY caught my eye: metallic. After all, who doesn’t love a little sparkle and shine in their life? Metallic made its first appearance at Misha NoNoo, when the usually minimal aesthetic was injected with metallic blazers and turtlenecks at New York Fashion Week. Then metallic found its way to London for Temperley London and more lately, Blumarine‘s disco ready runway at Milan Fashion Week.
We’re just about two-thirds of our way through Fashion Month and metallic shows NO sign of slowing down. And with Paris Fashion Week yet to come, it’s exciting to think of possibilities from houses like Saint Laurent or Alexander McQueen. Heck, perhaps Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel will add some metallic to the pot! (Come on Karl, do it!) Suffice to say, I’m kind of excited by the prospects for my coming fall wardrobe.

It’s great to think of metallic as a night time look, but I’m really excited about the possibilities for day wear. I have to give Misha NoNoo credit, for she opened my mind to a whole new side to shimmering metallic. Where Maco de Vincenzo and Blumarine showed sexed up dresses for a night on the town, Misha kept her looks modest and refined…with added flare.
Needless to say, I’ll DEFINITELY be looking forward to adding more metallic to my wardrobe. I just have this gut feeling that metallic will be the new bejeweled EVERYTHING I’ve been obsessed over for the past couple years. It will be nice to give my decked out sweaters and necklines a rest, in favor of a different approach to sparkle.
What about you? Are you dying to add some metallic to your outfit of the day too?
