Hi I’m Cayleigh, the Adelaide girl behind Of Style And Substance, a fashion and lifestyle blog where I share all of my favourite fashion trends and outfits. Stealing the spotlight this season, the metallic trend has been dominating the catwalks and filling our Instagram feeds with the coolest celebrities and bloggers spotted strutting around with metallic on their toes.
Say goodbye to boring with metallic boots, pumps, platforms and clutches. This trend has effortlessly cool written all over it and is the perfect way to introduce some bold, statement style into your everyday wardrobe. At first, the idea of wearing metallic can be quite daunting, but it is a lot easier to style than you may first think. Once you get started, you will struggle to go back after the shimmery splendour of metallic.
TIPS ON HOW TO STYLE METALLICS
One of the reasons that I love the metallic trend is that it is an unexpected and fun surprise to any outfit. Metallics don’t have to be only reserved for nights out - try adding a metallic boot to a simple outfit such as a tee and jeans to score instant cool points, while looking like you didn’t even try! The CASH silver boots are hands down my favourite metallic piece and I am predicting that I’m going to be wearing them with pretty much every outfit because they are so easy to style. From dresses to jeans, casual to formal, these boots can do it all.
Don’t be afraid to pair your metallic shoes with another bold item such as a fun print or bright colour, or even better - double up on the metallics. Make a statement by matching your shoes with a metallic clutch or even metallic clothing. The BUFFY silver platform heels are the perfect party shoes and teamed with the PACIFIC clutch, this combo is sure to turn heads! When it comes to styling, layering is always my secret to taking an outfit to the next level. To complete my metallic fix, I’ve layered a metallic silver knit underneath a little party dress to compliment the silver accessories and prove that I mean business with this trend!
When in doubt, go for all black. Black and gold is a great combo that always looks effortless and chic. I’ve styled the PARIS gold heels for a glam, evening look. I’ve chosen a slightly cropped pant with hem detail to draw attention to the heels to really show them off. Tie in the gold with your other accessories, such as big gold statement earrings to finish off the look.
