Style To Try: The Metallic Fashion Trend
This is my first outfit post for 2019 so why not start with something that sparkles? Today I’m going to share my thoughts about the metallic fashion trend. This trend gained its popularity last spring/summer and is still going to make a scene in the fashion industry this year. It’s a fun and elegant style that girls truly enjoy.
Now that I’m starting to talk about fashion trends, you may think this is another insanely extravagant staple you can’t wear on a regular basis. I get it. I always admire girls who can pull off metallic clothes, but for the longest time, I was hesitant to try it myself. I don’t want to look too dressed up. Much more, I don’t want to look like a disco ball. Besides, I didn’t see myself wearing metallic during the day and I feel like I might just eventually get rid of it after wearing it for… well I don’t even know if I’m ever gonna wear it? But hey, it’s 2019 and maybe it’s time for us to try something new. So I bought myself a cute metallic coat from Forever 21 and told myself, why don’t I give it a try?
Luckily for me (and for you too!), metallic fashion is not considered “extra” anymore. In fact, the metallic trend makes it easier for us, girls, to experiment and improve our styles without exerting too much effort.
What I like about metallic clothing is that I don’t have to stress myself on thinking what item should I pair it with. With my metallic coat, I opted to wear a black dress because the coat alone already makes my whole outfit look striking.
With the metallic trend, less is more. You may or may not choose to accessorize-- which probably depends on when you’re going to wear it. I would use a pair of black and gold tassel earrings with this outfit for a night out; but if I’m wearing it during the day, I may not wear any accessories at all.
Contrary to my former belief, the metallic fashion trend is so easy to pull off. Yes, it’s a striking piece of clothing, yes it can be overwhelming-- but it certainly doesn’t mean it’s hard to wear or pair with.
What do you think of the metallic fashion trend? Is this something you would like to try? Would love to hear your thoughts below!
