Fall season represents the end of bikini’s and other sexy summer wear, but it has its charme on its own. And that brings a noticeable -and likeable- shift in the amount of clothes and fabrics we wear. Of course, we need to get more warm and comfy, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still be alluring. For the women who love anything shiny, the designers haven’t let you down. On the contrary, the catwalks were dripping in shiny fabrics. Some went for full-on, dazzling (Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton and Cavalli) others more demure and sophisticated (Margiela, Philipp Plein and Liselore Frowijn). Translated through metallics, satin, brocade, soft silks, sequins and sparkly embellishment. But the main thing to remember for this trend: it’s highly wearable. You don’t have to be a model to pull this one off. You don’t have to pretend like you’re walking on a catwalk or you’re about to attend The Grand Ball. Any of that, most of these looks are suitable on a daily basis (okay, the dresses might be quite challenging at the office) and especially this december month. So don’t be afraid to throw on a shiny bomber jacket as seen at Alex Wang or a toned-down shiny wintercoat spotted at Valentino. So chop chop, get on it and make some space in your wardrobe for this holiday-ready fashion statement.

Trend Report SS2015: Glitz & Glam

Rocking some shiny, sparkling clothes during daytime, like we’ve done the last couple of years, can be the coolest thing, nothing new about that. Yet designers are taking the disco theme up a notch, presenting the shiniest, sexiest pieces to rock the dance floor (sip some cocktails and lounge about) till early morning. Daring (Tom Ford), revealing (Roberto Cavalli), powerful (Tommy Hilfiger), edgy (Saint Laurent) or elegant (Dries ven Noten), but most of all show stealing and jaw dropping. Making a grande club-entrance won’t be too difficult in these metallic designs, now let’s see about those dance moves…

Trend Report SS2013: Shimmer & Shine

Burberry, Dior, Comme des Garcons, Diane von Furstenberg, Jonathan Saunders, Viktor & Rolf; all major fashion houses that presented shiny summer collection. From gold and silver to colorful metallic and nacre coatings; it was all shimmer and shine on this season’s runways. Of course those floor length V&R and Dior skirts are not really suited for your average day at the office. But most designers managed to make metallics look very suitable for wearing on any given day. Tank tops, pencil skirts, loose blouses and tailored jackets all got the shine treatment (whether it being made of sequins or just a nacre layer) and were worn with minimal embellishments. The looks breathed optimism, future and festivity and we can’t help but feel happy while scrolling through those images. With this trend we go from the office straight to any fashion party in the same look and still turn heads. Now who doesn’t like that?
