Marvellous Metallics

As July has slowly and oh so warmly drifted into August, in true fashion form I’ve already started thinking about the new season. Not quite yet though have thoughts drifted to sweaters, coats and ankle boots but as I’ve been browsing the new season arrivals, I am starting to look at pieces that would work for both now and throughout autumn.

In true magpie manner, metallics have been catching my eye left right and centre throughout my internet meanderings. Perhaps it’s the influence of long summer evenings, a glowing tan and the glint of shiny sunglasses but metallics are the perfect way to prolong the shimmer long after the sun starts to lose its heat…

1 Daisy foil skirt – £125 Whistles // 2 Metallic leather shopper – £75 warehouse // 3 James Read Instant Bronzing Spray – £24 Selfridges // 4 Fendi metallic leather flats – £560 Net-A-Porter // 5 DAY Birger et Mikkelsen Aurora top – £130 Net-A-Porter // 6 Festival necklace – £14 Warehouse // 7 RMS Beauty cream eye shadow – £19 Net-A-Porter

I’m imagining that Whistles skirt with the softest cashmere sweater, the warehouse leather shopper with jeans and blazer and as for the Fendi flats…well they’d go with everything! A word of caution – wear one piece at a time to avoid channeling the tin man of The Wizard Of Oz fame…

Shop marvellous metallics…

    Great picks here! I love metallics, especially golds. The Warehouse shopper is gorgeous and I featured the festival necklace on my own blog a couple of weeks ago :-) let’s not wish autumn on too quickly though. Lynne x
