No matter what your personal style is metallics can always add a touch of glamour and fun to an ensemble.

How do you elevate a drab summer outfit? The answer is metallics. This season, a little bling is perfect to upgrade your everyday wear. Designers like Alessandro Michele (Gucci), Isabel Marant and Hedi Slimane (YSL) have given us enough cues on how to adopt this trend. Still don’t know where to start? We give you five extraordinary ideas to work metallics into your personal style

Athleisure | If sporty is how you like to dress, the Gucci ‘Bomber’ jacket will be the perfect addition to your wardrobe. All you need is a relaxed pair of cropped denims and black mules to complete your look.

Androgynous | If your style is more like Caroline de Maigret, co-author of ‘How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are’, wear these metallic brogues with a well-fitted pant suit. Wing-tip shoes are comfortable and dressy – ideal to take you from day to night.

Classic | If your closet is full of timeless pieces and you prefer quality over quantity, the metallic ‘Boy Chanel’ flap bag should be the next luxury investment for your wardrobe. Ever since its debut in Spring 2012, the design has become a big hit.

Sophisticated | If you prefer sharp lines and clean cuts you should totally own a metallic pleated skirt. Wear it with an off-shoulder blouse and block heels to channel your inner diva.

Bohemian. If your style reflects your free spirit, these Isabel Marant ‘Jada’ trousers should be your next purchase. Embodying the carefree ‘haute bohemia’ mood, style it the way Marant did it – with a black kedia top.
