Ladies, before you hurriedly toss your New Year’s metallics and sequins into the deepest corners of your closet, think twice. An analysis of the s/s 2014 runways dictates that it’s out with the old, and in with the gold this spring (ok not necessarily gold, but it rhymed so well, I couldn’t control myself). The runways of major fashion houses gleamed with metallics, ranging from cool silvers to rich golds, and bronze metals.

While some may cringe at the notion of dressing themselves like walking aluminum foil rolls, there are ways to make metallic look luxe. For safe and subtle outfits, avoid gold lamé or stamped foil textures in your clothing. Instead, opt for a matte finish or simply incorporate metallic accessories. In this instance, our shoe of choice is Pierre’s Hardy’s suede and leather bootie*. However, if you’re going for a statement look, we suggest pairing either a metallic pant or jacket with neutral colors. Incorporating colors that are too loud can take away from the effect of the metallic. To help you ease into the trend, we prepared a collection of our favorite metallic looks on and off the runway that will keep you shining all spring.

*Fun fact: the shoe was inspired by David Bowie’s costume in his Aladdin Sane tour.

Antes de olvidar nuestras prendas metálicas y de lentejuelas al fondo del armario, tenemos que pensarlo dos veces. Las pasarelas de primavera verano 2014 tu vieron esos dos motivos como estrella( nunca mejor dicho por el tema brilli brilli), así que es probable que vayamos a usarlas.

Y aunque algunas teman terminar pareciéndose peligrosamente a un rollo de papel aluminio con patas, los metálicos pueden ser llevados de forma elegante, dando un toque “luxe” a casi cualquier cosa. Para evitar llamar demasiado la atención podemos limitarnos a tonos mate, o simplemente usar el eterno truco de los accesorios (un toque por aquí, otro por allá…), las botas de Pierre Hardy son nuestras preferidas. Pero si buscas crear un look de impacto, unos pantalones metálicos son sin duda el camino a seguir y combinar con tonos neutros es un must. Hemos recogido en este post nuestras fotos preferidas con esta tendencia, pasen e inspirense.
