How to Wear: Metallics

Metallics (n): shimmers and futuristic twists [according to fashionising.com]

Metallics are the sizzling trend for summer 2013. We are here to help you rock the trend. Just remember three simple things…

1. Less is more.
You do not want to look like Tin Man. Too much of a good thing is definitely too much of a good thing in this instance. For example, do not pair sequined pants with an armor-esque top like Rita Ora here.

2. Wear metallics as a statement.
Metallics are meant to be worn as a statement. Let one item from your ensemble be metallic and allow the rest of it to be simple and complementary.
