TREND: Mix It Up With Metallics

Jeans, a tank top and a cardigan on top: the typical transitional-season uniform. Although it can get bland and boring, it’s almost a necessary evil; it’s just too hot for your fall knits, but too cool for summer dresses. This Fashionista makes the everyday uniform not so typical; by adding subtle lace, and a hint of metallic, she spices up “the uniform” and makes it unique.

The metallic trend can be seen in collections such as Herve Leger and Temperley London. Runway trends are always more extreme than those worn in the hallways, and even the designers use metallic sparingly. This Fashionista hit the trend on the head when she only let a slight bit of gold metallic peek out over her tank top. You can achieve this look with an American Apparel bandeau bra. This Fashionista also layered a sheer lace tank under her solid one; this adds a bit more flare without being over the top. Mixing trends can be tricky, but this Fashionista got it just right!

Hint: Make sure your tank top is in a neutral color if you're mixing it with metallics so it matches and doesn't look too busy!
