One of my biggest fashion buzzes comes from a classic cut or style we all know and wear well made over by an unexpected material. This fall, it’s metallics. Forget black, berry or even emerald — your favorite shift dress minis, clutch bags and moto jackets are now in liquid silver, rusty copper, ornate pewter and quilted gold. And they are stunning. Silky. Even rebellious.
Even if you don’t have a thousand dollars to drop on a sophisticated star-shining cap-sleeve dress or the more than double that for a brazen draped-crotch leather jumpsuit, you can walk confidently in the metallics trend by investing in a pair of pumps, Doc Martens, booties or flats so shiny you can check your lipstick in.
Here, 14 metallics you won’t want to take off your feet long after the trend has faded back to black.
