How To Wear Metallics

Wearing metallics can be bold and that's why can also represent a challenge of styling. I would stress out that less is more. Having one metallic piece is already enough and you can start from there slowly, adding statement accessories. 

1. Metallic jacket I wore here is leather-like from Zuiki that I was glad to have found when I was in Italy. It's cropped but has nice touches such as gold zippers on both sleeves and a belt at the bottom. It is an attractive piece and statement too. I could have it styled as the heart of the outfit and leave everything else casual. 

2. Colour play was kept tamed for starters and I wore only neutrals, mostly blacks. I had in mind to use colours in accessory that is why I kept everything else inactive. If you have two metallic pieces in your outfit, even if it is jewelry, try keeping it in the same colour scheme as two diverse metallics can conflict. 

3. For me personally, denim is an example that goes well with anything and so it does with metallics. A pair of jeans acts as a blank paper for the rest of the outfit. 

4. Recent purchase is probably too soon to tell but it may be my favourite this summer: Stradivarius shoulder bag. It's obvious what I like about it- the embroidery. I wore it because the canvas of the bag suits the metallic jacket and doesn't clash with it. You could wear a metallic clutch too but have in mind if the attire is day time appropriate. 

5. Don't overthink it. Since we are here talking about wearing metallics during the day, you only need to keep the rest of your look simple and pared it down with greys, blacks, whites or beiges.
