It takes a lot of guts to carry off a funky trend like metallic. It's bold, flashy and loud. If you're looking to make a style statement this festive season, we suggest you give the metallic trend a shot. With the right accessories and makeup, you'll be looking like a million dollar baby in no time! Here are 6 uber-stylish ways to wear metallic this season.
Since metallic is very strong and loud, you may feel a bit sceptical about sporting this trend. However, here's an idea. To carry this look off, simply blend it with another trend. The key here is to create a balance of contrast between the two outfits. Once you've got the balance right, you can mix match the outfits to create a new combination for yourself!
