The metallic trend is a very wide and inclusive one. It can range from sequins to sparkles, to shimmery material and foil effect – but the main thing is to add some shine and glimmer to your wardrobe.

The metallic trend falls in line with the jewel and embellishment inspired fashions seen on A/W 2012 catwalks and this Autumn and Winter, we have seen the metallic trend takes a less showgirl image and be toned down to look simple, classy and luxe.
