Time to give your LBDs a rest in favor of metallic ensembles for the new year. From sequined garments to shiny fabrics, we give you ways to wear this trend at its most dazzling.
Neoprene and lamé create the modern-disco look from the ’70s. This fabric combination is perfect for dancing the night away and would still look perfect 24/7. On Jessica: Rose metallic halter dress from Topshop, bronze pumps and necklaces from Call it Spring.
A sequined top can be a bit risky and overpowering. To make it work, pair a sequined top with a basic flowy mini dress to nail that sassy but sophisticated look. On Jessica: Sequined top dress from River Island, black and gold bangles from Call it Spring, red velvet shoes with black floral embroidery from Pedro.
Gold spaghetti-strapped jumpsuits in a subtle metallic hue create a sensual laid-back vibe. Match this look with a Kimono cover-up for a kick of color. On Jessica: Gold jumpsuit and Kimono cover-up both from Topshop, gold necklace with tassels from River Island, leopard-print pointed pumps from Call it Spring.
Tailored & Embellished
For the holidays, wearing a white cocktail dress is an easy way to stand out from the crowd. Pick a well-tailored and ornately embellished LWD to achieve a festive edgy aura. On Jessica: White dress with embellished pink accents from Miss Selfridge, gold earrings from Call it Spring, silver platform shoes from Pedro.
Velvet is a good alternative choice for those who want to play it safe. It lends an opulent touch without being too flashy. On Jessica: Velvet cropped top with fringe details from Topshop, black and gold brocade skirt from Miss Selfridge, rope statement necklace from River Island, blue velvet shoes from Pedro.
