Outfit Ideas: Heavy Metal

You may not have noticed, yet, but it’s metal mania out there. This month’s mags are feverishly full of shiny metallics, silver sequins, full metal jackets, steely looks and alloy-based fabrics. I hate the word trend (and emails that read things like ‘this season’s must-have…’, ‘what to invest in now…’, ‘essential wardrobe updates’, ‘instantly upgrade your look…’ and so on. Rules, schmules.

I like to wear ball gowns in the day. Trainers with dainty lace dresses. And diamante necklaces with tees and jeans. I’ve also been known to eat dessert before dinner and (cold) pizza for breakfast. So when it comes to metallic style, wear it anyway you want. Or don’t at all. Although, it’s hard to ignore that it is wayyyyy fun. From dramatic mirror-like heels, crystal covered boots, totally wild bags, glomesh and a sequin cowboy hat.

It’s just like looking into the galaxy. Sarah x

I’m loving the high-shine strut of Balenciaga’s metallic Slash Heel ankle boots, the silver leather of Alexander McQueen’s sneakers, the glare of ASOS’s silver sequin cami and the metallic sheen of Wildfox’s jeans. But what my heart really desires is a pair of Marc Jacobs silver glitter ankle boots.
