I’m feeling quite smug…
We’re currently 1 week of the Easter holidays down and so far so good. No major fall outs and at the time of writing, no visits to A&E, ( I hope that I haven’t just tempted fate by putting that in black and white!)
Though the weather is still completely out of whack with the season and obstinately refusing to warm up, I am going to continue as though we are beginning to break out the summer clothes!
Today, I’m all about the latest summer trend for… metallic.
High sheen featured prominently in the S/S ’13 shows, turning up in all forms. The catwalk was awash with iridescent fabrics, holographic foils, glitter and sparkle aplenty.
Burberry, Nina Ricci and Diane Von Furstenberg were a few of the big names to really latched onto this latest trend; either going all out by sending whole outfits of lustrous metallic down the catwalk or, for a more subtle approach, all over sequins to add a touch of shimmer to their ranges.
- Diane Von Furstenberg
- Nina Ricci
- Just Cavalli
As I may have mentioned once or twice before, I’m a sucker for a bit of Tina Sparkle so this trend is right up my street. If the sun ever decides to grace us with its presence I shall be there, reflecting her rays, whilst donning an article of high shine clothing!
But what will I find to satisfy this magpie need in me on the high street?
- Topshop- Embellished body con dress, £110
- Zara- Sequinned Sweater, £45.99
- French Connection- Ozlem sequin leggings, £120
- & Other Stories -Structured Jacket, £79
- Maje- Americano blouson argent, 295e
- Jigsaw – Square sequin pouch, £69
Yep, I think, I’m going to be well and truly stylishly catered for and thank goodness I won’t be walking round looking like a modern-day versions of Metal Mikey, remember him?
Will you be partaking in a bit of summer metallic if we ever get that far?
