This season, go for the goldor whatever metallic hue strikes your fancy.
When it comes to metallics, summer’s major players are undoubtedly the classics—gold, silver, platinum and copper. But just as color has forged on as fashion’s most resilient trend, it has also made its way to metallics. Pink, blue and vivid green also work well, especially in terms of accessories. We’re green with envy over Stella McCartney’s chain trim bag, and we’re equally enamored with megawatt doses of reflective sheen when it comes to your favorite pair of sunnies (a genius way to add interest to a makeup-free face). But perhaps our favorite season-less way to incorporate daily shine is with a chic metallic stiletto—a glamorous, leg-lengthening alternative to the simple nude pump.
