How to Rock Metallic- be it gold or silver or something in between


After a summer season rooted in 90s minimalism, this winter will be a welcome shot of color with sharp shoulders, corseted waists, oversized street wear and the puffy volume that is gaining fashion ground. It’s all about the loud trends for fall 2016 here, with lots of stellar content.

Mani_October 2016_Neha Pandey Photography-17.jpgThe metallic looks were all the rage on the catwalks as I noticed skirts, dresses, tops, pants and everything in between appearing in silver, gold, copper and more. It was a look I easily fell in love with. Once upon a time, the thought of shiny gold attire called to mind glitzy grandmas or Las Vegas party girls. However, thanks to an especially strong showing on Fall 2016 runways, metallics—specifically gold—are poised to be a seasonal standout.

If a little metallic is a good thing, than head-to-toe silver and black metallic certainly rocks! This ensemble of crop top and high waisted pants is nothing less than phenomenal. Echoing a disco wibe, this long line of liquid gold is meltingly luxurious in its opulence.

Why I opted to for a crop top and pants pairing to show this trend is because the sleeves were a huge part of the fall/ winter 2016 fashion trends. And what better way than with this co-ord set. Add in the high waisted trouser that add length to the legs and you have a design that is rather perfect for the fall but might lead to frozen ankles come the chillier days.

So be daring, explore the trends and get ready to rock an explosive silhouette this winter.
