4 Simple Ways to Wear Metallics in the Daytime
Pair the metallic item with matte fabricsWhile Pia was radiant in both the literal and figurative sense, a complete metallic look is never a good idea during the day. You want to mix the textures to avoid looking gimmicky, playing mix and match between glossy and matte finishes. For example, these Glossy leggings could be paired with a chambray shirt, a cozy shoulder-baring knit, or a cotton blouse.
Mix your metallic piece with neutral tonesNeutrals are the perfect base for your metallic clothes. If you’re thinking of wearing a gold piece, try matching it with warmer earth tones, such as olive, beige and burgundy. For silver items, cooler shades work best, such as gray and navy. For other colored metallics, black, grays or whites are your safest option, but feel free to play with other neutrals to see how well they blend with your metallic clothing. For metallic gray and black, you can experiment with a monochromatic palette, making sure that the items other than the metallic piece are both muted and matte. You don’t want to look like you’re wearing vinyl all over.
Use metallic clothes as your pop of colorStill unsure of which earth tones to mix with your metallic clothes? The easiest way to wear these Chic high waist shorts is by using them as you pop of color in your ensemble. Keep the rest of your separates and accessories either black or white, or perhaps another neutral, depending on the the type of colored metallic clothing you’ve got. You wear pastels against your metallic piece if you love incorporating colors into your daily ensembles.
Streamline your outfit with metallic accessoriesWhile a shiny tote may be too much to match with your silvery blouse, these Scotland flat sandals would be the perfect way to finish your daytime metallic outfit. Although it sounds contradictory, metallic shoes are subtle enough to be used as accents, while a metallic bag might reflect way too much light on your ensemble. If you don’t have any metallic shoes, anything with metallic details would do. For example, these Beaded London sandals would go well with a gold pencil skirt.
