All this time I have been drawn towards the opulence of gold and I forgot about the power of silver shock. While I am a golden girl when it comes to jewelry, I love metallics just as much as the next fashionista — if not more. A shock of silver is more sci-fi and glam rock than gold though. So, to tame your look and avoid looking too costumey, pair your silver shock with modern pieces — a cool blazer and organic denim. If you are going for the Barbarella look though — Halloween costume alert! — glittery eye shadow is a must.
I know what you're going to say: three-quarter sleeve coats were the toast of fashion town last Fall. That is correct. But can you blame designers for not giving them another go? The retro vibe these lovelies deliver is irresistible for some (hear hear), but these new contenders are thoroughly modern. You have permission to let those long sleeves show or if you want to glam it up, don a pair of leather gloves, Audrey style.
