Metallic style for your soirees!

South China Morning Post

Well, there are limited parties in 2020, so if you do attend one, make sure you do it in style! And what is the ultimate party style? Metals and blings, obviously! Hence, Wedding Affair brings you a guide to style the metallic wardrobe for your soirees this season.

Ultimate Party Wardrobe

As you prep your party season wardrobe, we’ll tell you this: your millennial ‘belle of the ball’ (or should we say, bar?) look will be quite incomplete without a generous helping of high-shine pieces. So Vogue says. A merrymaking staple, you can always count on trusty metallics to ensure that your fashionista title remains intact as you dance your way through the parties galore. The style set has already RSVP’d to this trend.


The antiquity 

In the late 70s, the Bohemian Style Indian dresses, skirts, vests and tops with gold painting were just awesome. Many had a skirt-top-vest outfit and a dress in this style. In the 80s, full-on lame dresses, golden or silver jackets and tops came up for going out and some gold stripes made it into everyday wear. High Latitude Style author Nicole Mölders recalls having knitted a winter white sweater with stripes. These stripes were in the same yarn as the entire sweater, but with thin gold lame thread added.

The Runway Metallic

The runway displayed metallic colours as a hot trend for this spring. Metallic colours can be anything from flashy silver to a golden bronze. Metallic colours can be added to spring and Easter dresses in a variety of ways. The whole dress or different parts of the dress can contain solid metallic colours with complementing non-metallic colours for the other parts of the dress. The dress can also have metallic accents, such as being used as the outline for a floral print. No matter how it’s used, a splash of metallic colour is sure to transform an ordinary dress into a trendy look for this spring. (Source: Fashion Allure)


Disco Blings

While you may have reserved your shiniest, sparkliest pieces for nights out or New Year’s Eve, it’s time to embrace your inner disco girl for all hours of the day, too. If metallic clothing seems intimidating to you, fret not. The easiest way to embrace all that glitters is by balancing it out with clean neutrals and solid-coloured basics. Try out a pair of pink metallic mules with your everyday jeans or ground a party dress with neutral heels. Get inspired by how fashion girls are reclaiming the trend in 2020, and then shop some suggestions to get you started. (Source: Who What Wear)

Maximum Impact

Sophistication in simplicity. By its very nature, metallic ensembles automatically shine out to put you in the limelight. Maximum impact with minimum effort, if you may. Hence, keeping it simple is a good way to go. Heads will turn anyway, Vogue further states. Man up Metallics are just the lustrous update your androgynous outfits need for a party-friendly vibe this month. Team a well-fitted blazer with golden trousers.
