Metallic Love for Autumn

Published on: August 21, 2013

Autumn is known for being the season where things get more serious. It’s out with summery separates and in with some serious luxury. Whatever trends we start to see we have that lovely feeling at this time of year that the prospect of layering up and looking cosy is back once again. Some trends from this years worldwide fashion week’s had everything to do with shimmery metallic’s, luxurious textures and military details. And that’s just the beginning. I have so much to share with you over the coming months and its all super glamorous!

First up, get your wardrobe ready for the spotlight because eye-catching metallic finishes will fill the high street. Whether it was Marc Jacobs liquid shimmer or Milly’s in-your-face iridescent glow that you liked the idea of, we can promise you one thing shine is where it is at. Now, my job of course is to take the scariness out of such an in your face and let’s face it 80’s trend! So, how can you make it more wearable?
