Trending Now: Metallic
Sequins and sparkle tend to always come back on our radar at this time of year, however, there is a new trend that has taken the catwalk by storm this season and that is metallic! From Tom Ford, to Valentino and Balmain, the one thing these designers have in common is the sci-fi influence shining through in their designs (literally), and we are loving it! From pussy bow blouses by Alberta Ferretti, to see-through organza suits by Balmain, and ball gowns by Valentino, it’s clear that pretty much anything goes when it comes to this trend so take a look at our favourite looks from the Fall 2018/ 19 catwalks below and don’t worry if they’re a little out of your budget, we have some fantastic alternatives for you!
If spending hundreds of pounds on a blouse (like this stunning one on the left by Alberta Ferretti) seems out of the question, but you still want something of good quality, this Metallic Pussy Bow Blouse by Karen Millen (just £65!) is the perfect alternative this season. You can wear it for work with trousers or a pencil skirt and dress up in the evening with some chic skinny jeans and heeled boots! Check our link below to shop now!

We absolutely LOVE this body con dress by Balmain and the way it has been styled with black thigh high boots. If you are lucky enough to have a figure that works with body con dresses, make the most of it and show off those curves. Above is another stunning metallic dress from melalondon, with a huge offering of styles online.

If you’re looking for somehting a little more quirky and tailored this festive season, try a suit. We LOVE this one on the left by Tom Ford but you can also find a similar version on the high street that gives you the look you want to achieve. This stunning slinky suit on the right is from Topshop and will be the perfect outfit to WOW your friends and family at your christmas/ new year party.

You won’t believe where this gorgeous stripy two piece is from, we were equally in shock! Pair it with a plain black cami, high heels and some statement earrings and you’re ready to go! My personal favourite is the blazer dress on the right, which you can wear with or without tights, and is perfect for showing off those pins!
Coats and jackets
Are you looking to update your winter coat or jacket this season? If you’re not frightened of standing out in the crowd, go for something a little different this winter and try a bold metallic. Although you may be thinking “what could I possibly wear this with?”, it is surprisingly versatile, as you can see in the imgae on the right by Christian Dior. The designer has paired a silver, metallic coat with a denim dress and thigh high boots; all you have to do is experiment and try it on with different outfits! We have seen it this season used a lot in the puffa style coats and jackets, which is a HUGE outerwear trend!
