Aishwarya Rai Bachchan nailed it at the Miss World 2014. Aishwarya wore a Roberto Cavalli silver sequined gown with a dark lip colour. Although metallic fashions are often thought as cocktail wear, they are often difficult to style. One step here or there and the effect can be trashy instead of classy. Gold, silver and other metallic tones can be worn just as effortlessly. Here’s how to style metallics:
Metallic accessories are the perfect way to inject your outfit with a dose of minimalistic shine. A pair of pointy-toe pumps look spectacular under tailored formal wear. Yu can also dress up your denims by carrying a blingy gold tote bag. Keep accessories and other clothes simple — a navy blue blazer or cardigan over a white t-shirt and neutral ballet flats helps your bag pop as the focal point.
Most metallic tones act as neutrals and can be paired with a wide range of colors. So separates are easier way to incorporate metallics into your wardrobe. Try wearing a gold sequin top with black skinny pants. PS keep the jewelry simple with ear studs as you do not want to look like a Christmas tree ornament.
A head-to-toe metallic look can be sexy and sophisticated if done right or be ready to look like a shiny disco ball. Soft sequins add a delicate feminine look to the esemble so prefer muted silver like Aishwarya over tin-foil silver. If you prefer a bolder metallic colours pick gold or bronze sequin cocktail dress. However take care as bling usually highlights fat in flashes so be careful to wear those tummy tuckers!
