Silver metallic has been a big hit since the 70s, from the disco dancers with the disco balls also matching their outfits. Movies like the “Saturday night fever”, “Disco fever”, “Disco Godfather & Hairspray” to name a few were filled with the glitter and vibrancy of all types of metallics. Yes, I really loved those disco moves but I wasn’t even born yet 😂.
Fast forward to the early 2000s till date the metallic has made a gradual come back. In 2000, silver but especially gold, were a must-have on catwalks of famous designers and in spring/summer 2009, shimmering shades of gold and bronzes decorated many fashion shows. Metallic color has turned every piece into a dazzling style statement.
Most women fear that wearing a metallic outfit would make them look like their straight out of a 70s disco movie or a John Travolta prodigy 😂, but there are ways to avoid such mishaps (not that there is anything wrong with the outfits in the 70s or 80s, I still love them)
Metallic reflects light and wearing it as a dress or a blouse can enhance facial imperfections. In order not to take away from that, it’s advisable to wear either a blouse or a dress with metallic detailing, so as not to end up looking like you have on a reflective mirror.
I decided to pair this silver metallic skirt with a plain buttoned up white shirt that isn’t shimmering, to ease the already reflective skirt.
While choosing a metallic color as an #ootd, pick only one metallic piece (either the skirt of a dress) whilst keeping everything else minimal
Avoid looking like a disco ball:
What I mean by that is, while wearing a metallic dress/outfit, do not go for an all-metallic look with shiny shoes and all. It is too risky so that’s why I decided to pair the classic mule for a classy clean look.
I’m not a makeup artist or an expert in that field, but do not overdo your makeup with a metallic outfit, you don’t want to overdo your makeup when you already have a lot going on. A simple make up or Smokey eyes will do.
Don’t be out here looking like this....
The right accessories can also make or break an outfit. Try to keep accessories to the minimal, since metallics offer a significant shine on their own.
