Fall 2010 Color Trend: Metallics

Prepare yourself for a little glitz and glam to spice up your Fall/Winter 2010 wardrobe:  metallics are in.

This light-reflecting fabric has long had a reputation for being too flashy for normal, everyday wear – but all that’s  changed now.

When worn in small details or on timeless, classic silhouettes, this sparkling color transforms into something much more wearable than the infamous clubbing gear it has been known to embellish.

Today’s metallic colors are much more suited for a day at work, or even running errands on the weekend, than dancing at the clubs.

Dries van Noten showcased metal’s more conservative sides by adding a classic blazer, Marc Jacobs debuted it’s more romantic and soft side with a floor skimming dress, Moschino made use of it to create a Western gold-digger look, and Alexander Wang kept a soft bronze modern and fresh with a Roman-inspired draped mini dress.

There are an endless amount of ways to incorporate metallics into your fashion life. With good tailoring and subtle details, even the most outrageous of colors can look timeless and chic.
