Get ready to shine in metallics for Winter 2012! We saw shimmery shades on the runways at Prabal Gurung, Derek Lam, and Dolce & Gabbana, inspiring us to style up the trend on our own. We headed over to Ron Herman in Brentwood, where we outfitted four metallic looks that will show you how to work these high-wattage hues into your wardrobe from day to night.
When we need a quick outfit fix, we reach for our gold and silver jewels. Not as often do we think of adding larger doses of bronzed, glittery, or gilded metals to boost our look — but this batch of celebrity and street-styled moments has us convinced to kick our metallic intake up a notch with outfit accents that go beyond accessories. Think slick mercury-hues on a blazer à la Poppy Delevingne and Ferragamo Resort, pearly metallic tones on a pair of shorts, or a moody silvery shade on a cocktail sheath. It's not as hard to pull off as you think — just click through for the inspiration and the style how-tos.
