Looks we Love: Metallic Evening Dresses

Shopping News March 08, 2013

Metallic is everywhere this SS'13 season! Metallic fabrics by nature look incredibly luxurious which is why they appear in so many designer collections. For spring, choose colourful metallics in peach, brown, blue and grey from designers such as Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain and Balenciaga. Metallic fabrics will also beautifully highlight a tan as Blake Lively demonstrates below. A lighter metallic like Blake's sensational silver Chanel evening gown also makes a great choice for a wedding if you're a guest or the bride! Shop a design close to Blake's by Rachel Comey (£549.77) and browse our favourite metallic evening dresses from Farfetch below.

ShopStyle Loves: Shiny Happy People

Celebrity News January 04, 2013

You can't fault Burberry's Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey's decision to use 10 year old Romeo Beckham in the brands SS13 campaign. Why? Because the colourful metallic clothes he is wearing are exactly like him. Fun. Oh, and super cute of course. We also love this trend because even though the most glitziest time of the year is over, it still allows us to step into spring with some metallic bling. The most coveted item has to be the incredible Burberry metallic trench, but you can work your way slowly into the look with mirrored accessories such as shoes, belts or bags.
