Metallic influence can be seen all around this summer/ spring season. There is a saying “everything that glitters is not gold” but irrespective of, its gold or not everything that glitters is “IN” this season. The gold rush basically started a year ago but it is continuing its upward ski with more opulent gleam as silver shimmer and metallic sweet wrapper foil effects in materials. Shimmer and shine has captivated runways, celebrities’ wardrobe and our very own street fashion. Earlier glittery and shinny used to be the territory of parties and high society but today it has come out on our streets surprising the common fashion fiesta. We can spot celebrities carrying huge metallic handbags, wearing metallic flats, and metallic chunky accessories.
Metallic lids are super hot for this summer but the lash to brow metallic look that has hit the runways may not be apt for normal wear or office wear. For an ordinary golden glam look use the metallic color without caking it up or simply use golden eyeliner to incorporate the season’s hot trend in your looks. Pat McGrath the global design director for Procter and Gamble says “nude is new” i.e. all over metallic tones that give models feature a plasticky uniformity with a look of “custom made luxury doll”.
