One of the fastest rising trends in recent years has been metallic and not just standard silver. We’re talking blue, bronze, gold and green- metallics are HUGE right now.

Whether you want to just introduce it slowly to your wardrobe (metallic nail varnishes or some cool accessories) rocking the look head to toe can be a bit tricky and that’s where we come in! We’ve got you covered with all the best metallic choices currently available.

Metallic Accessories

Normally, we’d leave accessories until last, but as this is such an important part of the look we thought we’d take the plunge with it first!

We’re not talking about obvious metallics like your silver diamond necklace, but the metallic colour of your shoes, bag, and yes, your nails. Silver is generally the best colour to go for, but right now the trend for mixing up different metallics can give you a really quirky and unique look, so if you’re brave… start clashing!

Metallic slip-ons, flatforms and an oversized clutch bag should be on every fashionistas hit list this season, so start planning your key pieces and buy smart- this trend will see you into the summer and beyond.

Sweat it out

To some, a metallic top is little more than a sauna suit from a sports brand that you put on when working out, but to others it’s one of the key buys of the season!

Paired up with a metallic skirt or trousers – it sounds too much, but trust us – you’ll be onto a winner when teamed with simple shoes and accessories.

You should also look for clothes where metallics form a contrast within the item. Dresses and shirts with metallic sleeves are the best examples; look out for them if you want something a little different.

Now you know how to dress in metallics, you’re free to dazzle, literally, wherever you go!

Vivienne Westwood to write memoirs: OH MY GOD can you imagine how amazing this book will be? Due out next year, the grand dame of fashion herself will be spilling all in her official memoirs. We can’t wait, it’s seriously on our wish list already!

Miley Cyrus performs on X Factor: It was hyped to be one of The X Factor’s best guest star performances and what with all her recent drug EMA controversies, you would have thought Miley wouldn’t disappoint…. And yet, we were left pretty underwhelmed by the whole thing. The biggest shock? She actually covered up and wore a long metallic dress complete with brick lane turban (yep turbans are back in fash) to belt out her Number 1 single, Wrecking Ball.

Meadham Kirchoff for Topshop: The wait is nearly over fashion fans, as Meadham Kirchoff’s fourth collection for the high street giant lands in store on November 21st. The capsule collection is themed around ‘cherrys’ and it’s clear the duo have had a hoot designing this one. What with Isabel Marant for H&M last week and this collab coming out Thursday, we’re being seriously spoilt by the high street at the mo. Who needs high end, eh?

And finally…

blog.image-daily.gloss-bubble-181113-ukShopcade hearts Joey Essex: Oh Joey how we love you and your pearly white knashers! We think he will be hilar on I’m A Celebrity if last night’s opening episode is anything to go by. The Only Way is Essex star was ripped for his brilliant pearly whites by his campmates as soon as he landed, but he may have the last laugh as we can see romance blossoming between him and Amy Willerton. Lotsa flirting going on last night on the ITV show as Amy attempted (she really tried, bless her) to teach Joey how to tell the time with a giant makeshift clock on the floor. Joey’s response? “It’s so much easier to look at your phone though, isn’t it?” Brilliant.
