Summer 2014 trend: Metallics

Many fashionistas associate metallics with holiday parties, and for good reason: Shimmer and iridescence are undeniably soiree-worthy and can really reflect the cheer of that season. This summer, however, ladies who love golds and silvers won't have to forgo their favorite wardrobe pieces. Metallics are in this season, and here's how to pull them off:

On-trend skirt
Shimmery skirts are popping up on runways across the globe, and they are cool enough in tone to be perfect for spring and summer. Wear these fun pieces with a lightweight ivory sweater or a metallic blue blouse. Daring ladies might also want to try pairing these skirts with a striped top.

Matte pants
Matte metallics may be hard to come by, but they are sure worth the search. Pick some up at a used clothes store for a unique wardrobe piece that's sure to stand out in a crowd.

Bold accessories
Not quite sure about this whole metallics thing? No problem. You can incorporate the trend without fear by investing in some bold silver and gold accessories. Chunky jewelry will help you stay on-trend while you stick to your favorite classic wardrobe items.
