Miss Metallic

Whilst we thought the metallics of the winter season were long gone, it seems the ever-changing fashion industry has surprised us once again. This S/S season brings a new meaning to the golds, silvers and bronzes we once associated with tinsel and various other sparkling decorations. 
In fact, with the Summer sunshine fast approaching us (we hope), these metallic colours are a perfect match for our newly bronzed bodies. 

The trend really came to the fore at last week's Met Ball, with celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz, Carey Mulligan and Camilla Belle all looking fabulous in various shades of liquid metal. 

Personally, I LOVE all things shiny and glitzy. I appreciate that some people may be wary of this trend looking cheap and tacky but if you look hard enough and in the right places there should be something for everyone. Therefore, I decided to hunt the online websites of today's top high street chains to find some of my favourite metallics of the season!
