Trend Alert: Metallics

The fabric of choice this spring is shimmering and shining! Designers from Lanvin to Rag & Bone have fallen hard for lamé, but this time around it moves out of the nightclubs and into the daylight. If this trend scares you, start slow with bags and accessories to bring on the bling. Liv Judd, shopping editor at LOULOU Magazine, shows us how to wear the meticallics trend.

Metallics at the Office

Treat metallic as a neutral. This makes it simple to pair with any colour and pattern. For the office, choose one metallic piece in your outfit and make that the focal point.

Casual Evening Out

For a night out break free from the LBD, and opt to shine with these silky pants with a metallic hue. To ground a looser-fitting pant, choose a top with more structure.
