Trend of the week


Do subtle radiance this season in glistening metallics.


Metallics continue to shine for spring/summer albeit with an air of discretion.

Think iridescent shades of silver, rose tinted gold and grown-up pewter realised in leather and laser cut textures.

Looking to Christopher Kane for clean cut shifts, sophisticated suiting at Haider Ackermann; not to mention Chanel’s diaphanous capelets.

Style Notes

* Keep metallics to the slimmest part of the body or somewhere you wish to draw attention - like a cleavage or small waist.

* Update your denims with metallic jeans from labels like J Brand, Zadig & Voltaire and Dorothy Perkins.

* Mix metallics and pastels for a trend-led edge.

Mint and silver, salmon and gold – the result is radiant!

* Too much shine? Try channelling the trend in a shoe or bag instead.
