Daytime Metallics

Metallics are not just for Christmas. Nor are they just for the evening. Get your silver and gold out, and give daytime metallics a try.

There’s nothing that will brighten up an outfit more than some daytime metallics – particularly on your feet! We love a pair of silver or gold trainers!

But we’re taking our daytime metallics way further than that – we wearing silver and gold skirts, sequinned tops, and more!

H&M’s gold sequinned jacket (£15, was £39.99) is a sale bargain that cries daytime metallics – it’s begging to be worn as a spring cover up.

H&M’s sliver pleated skirt is a gorgeous, fluid fabric for spring (£39.99). New Look’s bold, gold, beach bag (£tbc) is perfect also as a city shopper. And White Stuff’s almost pewter laser-cut bag (£29.95) is chic, and understated daytime metallics at their best.

Coast @ Debenhams’ gold print full midi skirt (£129) is show-stopping – perfect daytime metallics for a wedding, perhaps? BHS also have this understated print style, on a cute cropped top (£35). H&M’s silver splash vest (£12.99), would look fab with a pair of jeans.

Mix up H&M’s silver sneakers (£19.99) with their gold ankle socks (£5.99) for daytime metallics madness!

H&M’s striped duffle bag  (£24.99) has just a splash of silver- and we love it. And at White Stuff, if you are really struggling with daytime metallics, then their cute pink purse with gold foil spots (£19.95) might be a starting point.

Back with full on daytime bling, try Julien MacDonald @ Debenhams’ sequin vest (£45) under a cardigan. We know it will work! Finally, strap on New Look’s silver strappy sandals (£27.99) during the day for the wow factor.

Silver Space Age Style

The new Star Wars movie is out this week, did you know? Bahahaha…we’re KIDDING! Of course you know. Everyone knows. So, fashion fans, just go with it. Let’s embrace some space age style, and get all Star Wars, right?

Now we are not suggesting you go around dressed like Princess Leia, or adopt ‘Yoda green’ as your colour of choice. No, we are suggesting paying homage to the movie release with some cool silver, space age style.

Space age style of sorts. Yes, this is a tenuous link, but who doesn’t love a bit of silver in their lives. And who doesn’t think silver is, well, space age?!

This fantastic sequin shift from H&M (£79.99) has a space age feel to it, no? Or this slinky metallic thread silver ribbed midi dress from French Connection (£65). Team either with a gorgeous silver faux fur coat (£69, Dorothy Perkins @ BHS), and glittery boots (£27.99, New Look), or full on shiny silver space age sandals (£49.99, New Look).

silver style fourIf you want your space age style a bit more subtle, then French Connection’s aptly named galaxy star trousers (£85) and matching top (£55) are perfect. They look like the opening screen background of Star Wars itself! Team them with cracked leather silver Kickers shoes (£85, Schuh), or fab silver loafers (£29.99, H&M). H&M also has lovely grey/silver trousers (£29.99). Add a bit of sparkle to your winter woolies with theses fab mittens and matching fluffy pom pom hat from JOY (£12 and £16, respectively).

silver style twoAdd a simple bit of space age style with a silver glitter bar statement necklace (£12.50, BHS), or keep it more grounded with some chandelier earrings (£7, were £10, Red Herring @ Debenhams), or a cute Christmas tree brooch (£7.50, BHS). H&M’s geomteric glitter skirt (£12.99) and matching top (£5.99) are perfect space age partywear. As are Schuh’s fantastic shiny silver courts (£65).

silver style oneGo full on Empire style glamour, with an amazing wet-look, shiny silver maxi dress from Debut @ Debenhams (£130). You could rule a galaxy in this dress! Sparkly silver sequins make space age party style. No1 Jenny Packham @ Debenham’s maxi dress is stunning (£225), and New Look’s bodycon high neck dress (£69.99) will show off all your curves!

Glittery shoes are party perfection (£65, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams). French Connection have a floaty, beautiful threaded silver skirt (£60), just like the midi dress above – team it with a simple black Tee if you want to dress your space age style down. Finally, New Look’s silver gem necklace (£12.99) as space age style in buckets!
