I remember when I first laid my eyes on a metallic fabric that came into the office, it was several years ago and I really wasn’t sure if I would ever be on board. I thought it would be too flashy and futuristic, but this trend has been slowly growing on me, and for Fall/Winter 15/16, we are seeing a lot of shine with just the right balance of futuristic and sophisticated retro. Metallic knits and woven’s add opulence to assortments. Pants, tops, jackets and dresses are seen in sparkling materials that are reminiscent of past eras making this trend really shine. Here are a few looks from the runway.
When wearing metallics, the key to pulling it off is to keep it simple. You want to create a nice balance and not overdo it. Remember- a drop of shine and not a flood. Try pairing your metallic piece with something lower key to allow it to stand out and make a statement. I love the way these ladies pulled the look off. A little shine really goes a long way.
Here are a few shimmery Télio fabrics to get inspired with.
