Ask Shopbop: Must-Have Metallics


Look 1: Diane von Furstenberg top, 3.1 Phillip Lim skirt, VIKTOR & ROLF sandals, Clare Vivier clutch, Erickson Beamon ring. Look 2: Rebecca Minkoff blazer, DSQUARED2 dress, Nicholas sandals, Diane von Furstenberg bag, Gemma Redux earrings.

I love the latest metallic trend, but how can I work them into my wardrobe without looking like a disco ball?

Styling with sequins and metallic finishes can be overwhelming. The key to avoid going overboard is to pick one bold piece and anchor it with neutral basics and classic silhouettes.

METALLIC TEE
A textured metallic tee is a fun move for party season: the shine packs a punch but the shape is easy to wear. Style it back to a sharp pencil skirt to keep with the simple silhouette. Give the look life with a sexy shoe and modern clutch, and finish it off with sparkling gems.

METALLIC BLAZER
A tuxedo blazer in a snappy fabrication is the perfect topper for a simple dress. I like to mirror the tones of the dress in the shoes. This coordination keeps it pulled together, and also ensures that your look stays on target if you lose the blazer after a few twirls around the dance floor. Top it off with modern earrings and a structured clutch. These elements echo back to the blazer, keeping the ensemble rooted in a crisp and angular sensibility.
