Never dull your sparkle!!
And if you are looking for some external help to amp up your shine, then dressing up in the gleam and glitz of metallic fabrics is the way to go.
The currently trending metallic inspired fashion has won the hearts of industry insiders with its glossy luster.
Though the trend made its big comeback in 2014, I guess we were not done with exploring this futuristic experience. And hence right from the beginning of this year almost all the international and national designers have been working on their interpretation of this flashy element. Be it a grunge look or a more sophisticated version we are definitely high on metallics.
With all the celebrities and fashionistas gradually making room for this shiny addition in their wardrobes, we can vouch for the fact that this one’s here to stay.
This year with the inclusion of metallics in almost every prominent collection at the LFW, and our fashion chiefs and pace setters embracing it with much elan, we can only interpret its rise in days to come.
As a quick guide, for you to work and binge on this glamorous movement, we got you a list of toppers from the tinsel town.
