Here I am, back with the second instalment of my ‘Styling A/W Trends’ series and this time we’re talking all about the Silver trend. I think this is hands down my favourite trend this season. Adding Silver/metallics to your outfit is a simple but effective way to add a bit of texture in a very modern and cool way. You’ve probably seen those incredible midi pleated metallic skirts popping up all over the high street for an amazing full out evening look, however today I’ve decided to take silver to the street and style it for every day wear. Who says you can add a few OTT accessories to make your day-to-day outfit look sassy AF (Yes, I did just say that…No, I’m not sorry!)
The majority of the time I get dressed, I dart towards the times that are warm and comfortable, especially at this time of year as it gets colder and colder as the days pass. However occasionally I can put myself in a bit of a style rut, as I get in the habit of wearing the same items over and over simply because I know they’ll keep me cosy, yet adding a little touch of silver to my everyday outfit has really made me feel like my everyday wear is actually stylish and cool, rather than me feeling like I’m a complete un-fashionable outfit repeater.
TIPS FOR STYLING SILVER
As always I think that you should incorporate trends how you wish to however here’s some tips that I’ve picked up in my attempt to add a touch of silver to my wardrobe. The first and the most obvious tip (due to the title of this blog post) its to add silver to your wardrobe subtly. I mean It is quite a bold statement for me personally – Yeah you’re probably thinking ‘You’re wearing a bright orange coat, Abbie” however I’m used to bright colours now, the metallics are a new addition to my wardrobe, so i’ve added them into my style in ways that are easy and versatile
I started off with these AMAZING silver boots from Toyshop. I saw them and fell in love and thought they’d be perfect for an evening outfit if I was wearing all black and wanted to add a little bit of sass. However now that my confidence in them has grown and I’ve gotten a few compliments here and there, I’ve decided to start wearing them on a day to day basis, I mean If I can channel David Bowie on a daily basis, that’s fine by me!
