As the semester comes to a close, the money from summer jobs and internships flows in for us have a little more time to shop. So put down those schoolbooks from the classes you just finished the final for and pick up your pens to note the latest trends. Fashionistas, another kind of school is now in session.

A big one for this summer season is metallic. With the weather warming up for those hot summer months, everyone needs to spice up his or her closets a bit. And what better way to do it than with a little spark and shine in your accessories. This week’s Fashionista starts off on the right foot (literally) with the metallic trend. Her bronze metallic sandals are the just right kind of accessory for the summer time. Although simple and elegant with braided straps, they are perfected with the deep-bronzed color.

But sandals are not the only accessories that come in metallic! Metallic comes in all different forms this summer, from watches such as this rose gold menswear beauty from Urban Outfitters to a nice deep silver Tory Burch tote that’s perfect for going to that internship or even the beach. If you are looking for some shoes for those nights on the town you can’t go wrong with these strappy metallic pumps from Steven Madden appropriately named “Hotness.”

Whatever strikes your fancy this summer, make sure a little of it includes some metallic or you are missing out!
