I hope you’re all doing well. Today’s outfit represents one of my favorite trends: gold and silver. I don’t know if you have noticed, but 2016 is not over, not just yet. Those who were able to see the runways during fall 2016 probably know that the silver-gold trend is still on point. That’s why I decided to incorporate it into my look.
In addition, the maxi dresses have been IN for months, and I have the hunch that they will remain a little longer. This outfit is risky and glamorous; let’s get into it!
First of all, the maxi dress is made of a silky fabric in a silver color. The under-knee dresses are everywhere now. They are a great and simple option to create an elegant and different outfit. Here, I played with the accessories. Since I wanted to create a contrast between silver and gold, I added the gold chain belt. This item not only enhanced my waistline but also highlighted the dress. Enhancing the silhouette is always a good idea. We are women; we have curves naturally. The key is learning how to be sexy without being tacky.
Long earrings are back! This piece was a protagonist in the runways. The crystal earrings are a must have during the spring season. I use long earrings when I want to highlight the shape of my face – my cheekbones for instance. When using this piece, I do not recommend to wear necklaces; we may wear a simple thin choker, but I prefer the belt as the partner piece.
For the final touch, I wore a pair of “Gladiator” heels. Why? Because I wanted to create a different outfit, not something that you see everywhere. Since all the clothing pieces of my look were elegant, I challenged myself to make it urban, more casual. So these heels came to my mind. We all know that the gladiator trend has been a total success. Now, there are gladiator heels instead of sandals… who would have thought that? Anyways, the point here is that the heels make the outfit pop up. When you look at it from head to toes, you see an unexpected addition. I could have played on the safe side and have grabbed a regular pair of heels, but I didn’t. Avant-garde styles are my favorites. From my perspective, mixing and combining styles are key in fashion.
You are allowed to use everything that is within your reach to stand out. Fashion is not static; it evolves. Feel free to use and reuse any trend you like. In my case, I choose metallic and movement. That’s how I make them look twice!
