In a similar vein to prints and brights, the key to getting metallics right is restraint. Foil finish fabrics worn head to toe might work on the catwalk, but in real life the effect is less sophisticated and more spaceman. Worn with black or white (or both), a choice metallic piece can add polish to even the most basic ensembles. And gone are the days when metallics were the preserve of eveningwear – pair a shimmery skirt with a simple jersey sweatshirt and you’ve got an outfit which works equally well at the office or for weekend lunch…
