All That Glitters!

Hi There,

I must say, this season is glittering with metallic colors - silver, gold, bronze, copper..you just name it! There was a time when metals only meant jewellery. Now there is a huge canvas ranging from shoes to bags to clothes to hair bands and back to jewellery.

I had bought a metallic dress almost a year back but never wore it (like we all do with a lot of our clothes). I was just trying it on this Sunday and took a few pictures..posting them below. I also tried wearing it as a top with a pair of formal shorts!

Wearing Metallic

  1. The Metal - Although all metals shine beautifully on everyone, it is still better to choose the metal tones carefully. Cool skin tones favor silver, platinum, and white gold whereas Warm skin tones favor gold, pewter, brass, and copper (read note at the end). However, the choices differ from person to person and there is no specific rule for this. Just be sure you like what you buy and that it pairs well with the other items in your wardrobe.
  2. The Item - If you have to safely invest in just one metal colored item go for a bag. A metallic bag is easier to mix and match with various pieces of clothing. You can also go for shoes but you need to be sure if they would fit in with your existing clothes. If you are as crazy as me, go all the way and buy a metallic top or dress...it is fun!

Note: Is your skin tone warm or cool? By comparing your veins that can be seen through the skin (usually best place to find them is under your wrist or elbow). If they are more on the blue side, you have a cool skin tone. People who have cool skin tones usually have anywhere from light blue to dark brown eyes. Cool skin tones are most common, including people who have dark brown or tanned skin. If your veins have a more greenish tint, you have a warm skin tone.


 Happy Shopping!!
