Metallics were all over the runway this season, meaning that they will be all over your social feeds soon. While the trend might seem a bit intimidating to pull off — especially during the day! — it's actually a lot easier than you think. Metallics work best as an accent; it's best not to overdo it and go full head-to-toe metal. Instead, focus on adding one or two pops of shine, and your look will instantly go from drab to fab. Here are a few of our top picks to help you shimmer into fall.
