Shine on

Metallics are back for summer. Here Charlotte Newman from Kitch suggests myriad ways to wear and style them…


With spring and summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe and embrace the latest trends. One that’s been making a big comeback on recent runways are metallics. From shimmering dresses and skirts, to metallic accessories, there are many ways to incorporate metallics into your spring/summer ’23 wardrobe.

Several designers have embraced metallics in their recent collections, including Tory Burch, Paco Rabanne and Valentino. Tory Burch’s spring/ summer collection for this year featured a range of metallic leather extras and statement skirts, in a stunning shimmering silver lamé. Valentino also included metallics in its collection, with models walking down the runway in shimmering outerwear and silver embroidered dresses.

If you’re looking to shine in metallics for the new season, there are several ways to do so. Here are some tips to help you get started:


  1. Choose the right colour

Metallics come in a range of tones, from silver and gold to copper and rose gold. When choosing metallic pieces for your wardrobe, consider which one will best suit your skin tone and personal style. For example, if you have cool-toned skin, silver and platinum metallics may be a better choice, while those with warm-toned skin may prefer gold or copper metallics.


  1. Start small

If you’re not sure if metallics are right for you, start small by incorporating metallic accessories into your outfits. A pair of silver earrings or a gold bracelet can add a touch of glamour to an otherwise simple outfit. You could also try adding a metallic belt to cinch in a dress or skirt.


  1. Mix and match

Don’t be afraid to mix and match metallics in your outfit. Pair a silver top with gold earrings, or wear a rose gold skirt with a copper clutch. Mixing metallics can create a stylish, modern look that’s sure to turn heads.


  1. Keep it simple

When wearing metallics, it’s important to keep the rest of your outfit simple. Let your metallic piece be the focus of your outfit and pair it with neutral colours and simple accessories.


  1. Experiment with different textures

Metallics don’t just come in shiny finishes – you can also find metallic pieces with a matte or textured finish. Experiment with different textures to add depth and interest to your outfit. For example, a metallic tweed jacket can add a touch of sophistication to any understated outfit.

So whether you choose to go all out with a metallic dress or keep it simple with a pair of silver earrings, metallics are sure to add a touch of glamour and sophistication to any outfit. Why not try incorporating some metallics into your wardrobe this season and see how this trend can elevate your style?
