Shine on, with the new metallic shimmer trend this season. Whether you are heading to a dinner date or a party, adding shimmer to your wardrobe makes for an instant glam makeover. Gone are the days when your party looks meant you wore a heavily embellished outfit or a sequin dress. Instead it’s time you embraced the metallic shimmer trend with open arms. Designers have redesigned metallic shimmer fashion with their own interpretation and twist to it. Classic metallic colors like gold, silver, bronze or copper not only adds richness but also oomph to your demeanor.
My last three posts spoke a lot about what’s “In Vogue” & the latest trends. I do follow latest fashion trends but adding them to my closet is a choice that I make, based on my style. This trend is certainly something that has caught my attention and falls in line with my personal taste in terms of styling.
I am a compulsive shopper at times; however I do try and restrict it as much as I can, unless of course the shopping is done for a purpose. Depending on my mood, I either love a very simple look or I love to go all out and dazzle in something special. This is exactly what I did when I came across this gorgeous short shimmer black and gold dress at the Zara store. I instantly fell in love with the outfit because of its gold metallic detailing and long sleeves with frills on the shoulders and cuffs. It is trendy, eye catchy and absolutely one to point out.
This flounce dress with crossover neckline and overall vintage feeling made it stand out from the rest. I always have a unique dress hanging in my closet for a special party or date. This outfit will make for a perfect date night or night out dress, because in the coming days and months there will be lots of appropriate occasions for me to wear this sleek, shimmery and metallic short dress. I decided to go sans any heavy jewellery for this look and paired it with black platform wedges (You may also pair it with stilettos). Concerning make up, a dash of red brown hue on the lips and semi smoky eyes did the trick.
I went a little conservative with this dress and wore a black tube inside the crossover neckline, however if you are confident; going bold can definitely enhance the look by leaps and bounds.
So who says you have to wait for the festive season to add a little shine to your wardrobe. Anything that shines and sparkles is huge this season. If you are a self proclaimed fan of metallic shimmers, then its time you give the sparkle rage a try.
Style Tip for the Day: Do not go overboard with the metallic shades. It’s important to learn the balancing act well with shimmers. If done well you will shine and look stunning, if gone wrong you might end up looking like a disco ball 😉
