Metallic Madness!

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.

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?

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?

Happy weekend.

  1. Hi there! I love summer metallics and have a silver and a bronze bag that I’ll use more in summer! Glad you’re enjoying the Easter holidays, have a great weekend xx

  2. I’m not sure about this one. I remember when I first laid eyes on the Burberry collection and all I could think of was a tin of Quality Street. But it’s strange, the more you see of it, the more desensitised I become to the effect and now I’m looking at it thinking, that’s a nice jolly selection of raincoats there!

    But no … I think I will pass this time.

  3. I love metallics but it seems, just like nautical, it comes back around every year. That’s good though as I have a silver metallic topshop skirt from last year I can’t wait to wear again!
