Contrary to popular opinion, Olympians aren’t the only trendsetters sporting grandiose gold, stunning silver and opulent bronze. These colours add an element of regality to your wardrobe that can’t be achieved with matte counterparts. From Jonathan Anderson’s tin-like trousers to Chanel’s space-agey eyeshadow swoosh, many modish designers are fixating on the metallic.
Boasting a contemporary take on a classic style, these Stuart Weitzman bronze block-heel ankle boots are perfect for the autumn/winter season. Bronze is an essential colour for the fall and this highly textured metallic fabric adds a splash of brassy fun to any outfit.
Mastering silver has never been simpler thanks to molten accessories that give off high-shine accents. Chrome bombers, chic cufflinks and ‘embossed’ jumpsuits boast an inner-city vibe. Messika’s attention-grabbing celestial diamond-studded calypso necklace certainly sets the ‘silver standard’.
Harvest-time gold has a shameless pretension that makes one feel delightfully decadent. Gilt animal prints and glittering lame skirts reminisce Eighties garish glamour. Elisabetta Franchi’s plunging gown, with ruched bodice and long sleeves, is particularly peacocky.
