Metallics have been seen all over the Spring Summer 2017 runways, so it only makes sense to try to embrace this show-stopping trend. When it comes to the metallic shades, nothing quite beats a glamorous gold for the summer months, so here are a few pieces that you could invest in.
Pleated Gold Midi Skirt
Although the summer months may be warm enough to bare more skin than usual, there are always those occasions when you do not want to flash quite so much leg, making a midi skirt a great way to go. The pleated gold midi skirt from Zara is made from a frayed metallic fabric, giving it an edgy, down-to-earth vibe, but it still swings and flows in a way that is delightfully feminine.
Traditional loafers are a classic, and are being seen just about everywhere this summer. While your go-to black loafers may be looking slightly tired, a pair of metallic gold loafers, such as the style from Tod’s, will never fail to brighten up your day. Whether you wear them with cropped denim jeans or dark workwear, gold loafers will add a slightly futuristic edge to any outfit.
For those who are still not quite sold on the idea of wearing gold, trying this trend out with a pair of understated gold sandals is a great way to get your feet wet. Marc Jacobs has a pair that is perfect for this, as they are made from a cracked metallic leather and feature a covered heel and a buckled ankle strap, making them casual and perfect for lazy summer days.
If you have been wanting to buy a new swimsuit for this summer, try on a few gold swimsuits and see how much the color flatters your skin tone. Gold works with just about every skin color out there, making a gold swimsuit the perfect way to stand out on the beach this summer. From Melissa Odabash to Topshop to Martha Medeiros, there are so many brands out there that have their own stunning version of a gold swimsuit, so do explore all of the options.
Sequins and Crystals
With everything from sequins and crystals to beads and Art Deco motifs, the gold Patty Silk Chiffon Mini Dress from Alice and Olivia is perfectly suited for the summer. The dress boasts a plunging neckline and a flared silhouette, and would work well when paired with a clutch bag and some strappy summer sandals.
If the idea of gold is still too bold for you, give rose gold a try instead. With its pinkish hue, rose gold is much more subtle, but just as on-trend. For a rose-gold dress that will soon become your go-to number for special occasions, take a look at Herve Leger, who have a figure-hugging metallic gold bandage dress that will beautifully accentuate your shape.
The subtle shimmer that metallic shades give to your outfit are enhanced even more by the bright summer light, making this the perfect trend for the summer months. Whether you opt for gold shoes or a gold skirt, these are some of the gold must-haves for your wardrobe this summer.
